Lol I wouldn't touch antec with a 10 foot pole, all their cases are POS.

The NZXT Phantom meets all your requirements, something worth considering.

Corsair Graphite 600T Special Edition is a good option too, the special edition comes with a windowed side panel that can be swapped for mesh side panel that can hold 4x120mm fans (both side panels are included).

What this man said should also be considered.

For me, what it really comes down to are two things, Modding ability and appearance.

Corsair 600t sounds like a good choice--if you're not set on a full tower I'd recommend the Cooler Master 690II. Very, very near full tower size (I think just 2" short at 22"x22" HxL). Advance version comes with plenty of fans, and dust filters are everywhere. STAY AWAY from the Antec 1200 and Lanboy, they are bad cases with horrible cable management. The Lanboy is pretty much full mesh, but hardly has any filters on it.

Also, what are the cards you will have in SLI? The Corsair AX850 is the 2-card king of PSUs. Much better idea to put the money more toward a quality PSU closer to your power needs than a lower quality overkill PSU.

god sooo many choices lol.. but im not 2 fond of coolermaster anymore i haf problems with haf 932 front ports before i trashed it. it would cause static but then i found out its because of the reset switch (Facepalm)
post #17 of 35
Hmm, if you say so. I have a speaker system that I plug my headphones into if needed so I really have no idea if my 690II has a static issue. I'm looking into other cases now though, and I'm really not sure what the qualification for 'full tower' is. The 690II is larger in every dimension than a number of these 'full tower' cases. Interesting.

Again, what cards will you have in SLI? I'd love to help you choose a PSU.

im running i5 2500k & sabertooth p67 and want to use a corsair h60

yea coolermaster has a problem with static front port when touching it.. if you search it u will see it has to do with the pcb board tripping the reset
post #20 of 35
OP I have seen your other threads and it is clear your struggling with a few component decisions. SO my advice:

PSU: Corsair AX or HX 850 is more than capable of handling SLI 560s, so that would be the wiser choice over the 1200w

Case: HAF X, Phantom and 600T SPECIAL EDITION are all good choices and meet all your requirements that you stated earlier.

SSD: Get a 120GB vertex2 (they've dropped in prices since the release of vertex3)

I really hope this clears things up for you a little.
