Good air cooling case under $150? - Page 2

post #11 of 39
I have a haf 932 and it is amazing... my three cards can fold running 100% and non of them go above 60c... i would say a HAF series case would be your best option IMO.

I would say the NZXT Phantom, also the Corsair 600t makes another good choice.

The Colossus is one of the WORST air cooling cases.

That being said, OP look into getting a DF-85, the cooling cannot be beat for the price.

I have a HAF 912A, essentially mid atx version of the 922.
With a bunch of high flow coolermaster 120mm fans, I have one cool system.

Stock possibly since it doesn't come with a lot of fans but still has a lot more features and looks nicer then most other cases in the market.

All the cases mentioned sound like good choices, running the price spectrum as well.

I'd lean toward the RV02 for performance (though I'm not entirely sold on the aesthetics) followed by the Phantom (looks and performance) and then the CM690II as my budget choice.

Look up the in win dragon rider i have one and its pretty nice. Its a full tower with the option to mount up to 9 fans with 4 of them blowing in from the side. It says more but 9 is the real amount if you have a real CPU cooler. Its alot nicer and they fixed a few issues from the ironclad. It also has a ton of front panel ports: 2x USB3 2xUSB2 1xfirewire 2ESATA and headphone/mic in. Its a real love it or hate it styling

Lanboy. It's $175, but still worth considering.
