Im lost in the case choice !! help me chose one please !

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 
Hi guys !

in order to create a good mid budget gaming rig, i have grabbed like 3000$ ( includes the 3 Screens and Logitech G15+G13+G9 and some other stuff)

so lets say i can pay for these stuff :

i7 2600k
Asrock Fatal1ty Mobo
4x 4 GB HyperX 1600
Velociraptor 600GB SATA3
WD Black Edition 2To HDD SATA 3
OCZ modxstream 700W
crosair h70 cpu cooler
2X EVGA GTX 470 SuperClocked in SLI MODE
AND SOME LED FANS

The thing is making me go crazy is the case problem i never built a serious computer before but i want to get the badass case of this list :

  • CM HAF-X
  • CM 932
  • CM Cosmos S
  • CM Storm Sniper
  • ANTEC 1200
  • NZXT Phantom
  • Corsair Obsidian 650DW
  • SilverStone Fortress FT02R-W
  • Silverstone Raven RV-01-W
  • Corsair Graphite 600T
  • Silverstone Raven RV-02
  • Antec Dark Fleet DF-85
Off this list i want a fricking thrill case that is good for h70 and able to hold Max of 120/140/200 mm fans number so i can keep the system frozen, and if you ask me about the custom watercooling i will say no cos im a coward and i dont like to get my computer wet like a sweaty V*G1N*A*

sorry for bad language , but its me , anywayz help me please chose my case , and if you got any remarks on the system components just SAY it and please help help help !

Cases I own/owned and love are NZXT Phantom and Antec 1200.

I like the design and looks from the Phantom and I love all you can fit/do to the Antec 1200.

edit: Also I've always liked the SilverStone Raven 1B.

It's not on your list, but the Hurrican, (same case I have), can do 4x230mm and 4x120mm. I consider it in the same range as most of the ones you listed.
But be warned, you'll need to replace the front stock 120's. They are low speed and don't really push much for air.
