ready to start my build.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I came across this forum and finally descided to join because i'm about to start my rig.

I do not do much hardcore gaming, video editing, or other resource gobbling hobbies, but I do enjoy the aesthetics of a nicely built, super clean, speedy system that has the horse power to do anything i want if i so choose to do so.

My idea of a perfect system would be nicely lit with tons of LEDs, nice visible case, just generally be jaw dropping in appearance....

I have a few cases in my just nothing i completely love.

I think the best place would be to start here, sooooo please OC'ers help me find my case. I would like to stay around $100

CM 690 II or NZXT Phantom. The Phantom is clearly the best (and sexiest). In my opinion.

super sexy, I wish the side door offered a better view of the guts. or even a totally clear window.

but that case has crazy sexy lines, looks very nice....especially the white one, thanks for the suggestion.

anything else with a better view of the internals?

The Lancool PC-K62 has a pretty nice symmetric window to show off the internals.
Its not too pricey either.

Mod a window in the Phantom's side. Easy, simple, inexpensive.
