Opinions needed on deciding

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone, I'd like some opinions on a new case I'm looking into. I'm looking for a case that will last me for 4-6 years, that has the build quality of a Lian Li or Corsair, that it's a mid tower with great cable management (Grommets) I love anodized and brush aluminium so that is why I'm leaning to the Lian Li PC-9F, and I love the features and airflow of the Corsair 650D.

A window would be awesome to see all 42 Led's from my rig (36 of them just on my ram) Bottom mounted power supply, 100% tooless isn't needed but it would be awesome to have. I have looked at the 650D, 600T, PC-7FN, PC-9F and others, and I'd like to keep it under $200.

Besides what I've found in the 650D that blows me away for a case, does anyone know of anything that would be similar?

Thanks, but I'm looking a for a mid tower, but the A70 series is very nice and I like the faceplate design the PC-7FN takes from the A70F

going stylish, below $200, brushed aluminum with windows it is kinda hard to match the corsair 650d. you have already mentioned lian-li and the only other case that i could think of is silverstone and bit-fenix.
