help picking out a new case challenge

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
ok so i have a little challenge before me and thought maybe someone here had a similiar problem devolp, i need to purchase a new case due to my side panel not fitting back on properly due to the new cooler i had installed the cooler master hyper 212 and also cause my cable management went to hell since biostar decided it was a good idea to put he 24 pin connector near the i/o shield.

with that said i have the following task before me in finding a new case which is
1. be under $60 with ups shipping
2. must come from newegg
3. case must fit the hyper 212 with ease
4. must be silver or black(inside must be black)
5.cable management must be present
6 hard drive bays must be postioned where when i open side panel i slide the drive right in instead of facing front to back

i don't want to sound like a jerk, but i found myself searching newegg and looking at a few cases within your criteria. then i thought, "why the hell am I doing this?"

c'mon dude...newegg makes it too easy. search by price, then look at the pictures. there's your answer.


and to the last poster Adrian...that case isn't black on the inside...

Off the top of my head the best case I can think of is the CM690II. it will fit your CPU cooler with room to spare, the HDD mounts are the way you want them. The case has amazing airflow and is just a hairpin above your budget. I opted for the Advanced becouse the hot swap bay is the shiznit! I think they could get away with asking more money for the options in the case. cable managment is great to, inside and out the case is black. hope this helps.
