You opinion on this case

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
The previous thread was filled with too much posts and nobody noticed my own posts on the last pages, so I opened this new thread.
My current case isn't satisfactory for me. So I am going to buy a new case for $100 price range. I wanted to buy a good looking case with best possible airflow that will help with cooling really hot HDDs and video cards. So I came up with this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811146062
I really like this case but the reviewers say that after several months of use the fans failed or something like that. Should I risk going with this case?
If you don't recommend this case, then post similar looking cases that have side-window, black interior, cable management and good airflow.

One of my friends living abroad has been using this case for more around 6 months, no problems so far.

Iv owned 2 of these personally, great cases with great airflow on stock configuration.
Alot of cases you have to spend money on decent fans but not here, also never had an NZXT fan fail on me

It is generally known on OCN to be a very good case overall.Don't think it would rate much better than a CM690 Advanced however.

Nice case, but i'd save a little and just go for the CM690 II Advanced. I prefer it and it saves you 20 bucks.

CM Storm Scout really is a good case, not just because I have one though. I got my Scout and a 700w Coolermaster silent pro power supply for just under £130 Very good deal! Very impressed with the case overall. Build quality and features are great.

I already own CM690 and I am not pleased with it. It is real dust lover.

By the way, Should my CPU cooler fans be directed towards rear fan?

Personally, I don't like that case and after Googling some bad points are:
  • Plastic front element may not be for everyone
  • Need to remove panel to remove drive cage
  • Limited cable management & hiding possibilities
  • Screw-less ODD system does not hold drives tight
  • A bit loud / poor acoustics
