Which ATX case with USB3.0 headers?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Looking for an ATX case with USB3.0 headers. Nothing fancy otherwise, just something with cable management and can fit 12" graphics cards (even if it means HDD cage(s) have to be removed.) Right now, I'm down to:

NZXT Source 210 Elite:

CM Storm Enforcer:

Silverstone PS06:

Fractal Design Arc Midi:

I'd like to keep it as close to $100 if possible, although I could spend more if I find it's worth it. Leaning toward the NZXT mostly on price, but I think the Silverstone would be my second choice.

If you dont mind spending a full bill I would go for something like this [ame="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004ULYPVK/ref=pd_lpo_k2_dp_sr_1?pf_rd_p=486539851&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe-1&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B004XIB8RY&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=0NQ0QJAN0F3GVCE5YYXA"]Amazon.com: NZXT Technologies H2 Classic Silent Midtower Chassis CS-NT-H2-B (Black): Electronics[/ame]

How's the tool-less design on the HDD's?


Also, what do you guys think of the Lian Li PC-8NWX?:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811112263

Seen it for $150-$175 in a few places, I like it for the relatively compact design (with the HDD cage removed), even though it doesn't seem to have true cable management or a CPU cut-out.

Tooless varies from case to case but I havent heard anything bad the H2 I almost bought one for myself infact.

I'll have to look into it more, then.


One more question, actually - does anybody know if the Source 210's HDD cage/mount can be removed with screws or something, or is it riveted on and/or part of the entire drive assembly? I'd love to remove the HDD cage but not if it would require a lot of work.
