Help me find the case I need for this project!

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I am trying to find a new case to house my girlfriends computer. It will be her birthday present. Her current case is an old busted up plastic dell case.

I am looking for a Black case that is filtered with slots for 120mm-140mm fans. I don't care if the case has any fans that come with it since they will be replaced with Red LED fans. I need it to have great airflow since it will be air cooled.

But here's the problem I have been having. I want the inside to be painted black, and the Side window has to be solid so that I can put in a Heart shaped acrylic window.

No the hardware is not dell haha. At the time we built it we were on a tight budget and skimped on the case and pulled an old dell one out of the closet.

ATX sorry forgot to add that.

LOL!

Okay then since that's out of the way can I ask what's your $$$ budget for a case?

If you can swing it, maybe a 650D with the solid side panel? You can buy those from Corsair's site.

Option 1 ($90):

Storm Scout, already black and it has space for the etching alongside the 2 120mm fans you can also attach to the side. Already comes with some red fans as well.

Option 2 ($170):

600T (White Edition)Black and White just sexy.

Option 3 ($100):

NZXT H2 WT. All white case including inside. Perfectly flat side panel which would be great for you to cut your own window exactly to the size you want.

Option 4 ($100):

NZXT Tempest. All Black, just what you wanted with a nice big side window.

scout may not be the style he's after with a heart shaped window and all.

600T is sexy, but abit pricy. also he requested a black case.

Yea, personally think the white would look much better for the woman but to each their own. Red lit up heart in an all white exterior/interior would look sexy as beast.

400R would be a great one for $100 but again you would have to cut out your own window.
