budget case recommendations - Page 7

post #61 of 107
Thread Starter 
I just got word back that it isn't possible but it's fine. The PC-9F is now in the game since I've finally found 140mm fans that please me (San Ace 9WB1412S501 and 9LB1412S501 along with the Akasa Viper and Apache 140mm). So...new requirements and on the search...again.

-$150 (the lower the better)
-1 or 2 top intakes
-2 front 120/140mm intakes or a single 200mm front intake
-Not Corsair (sorry Corsair but I'm just not a big fan of your cases)
-1 back exhaust
-3 or 4x5.25 bays (if there's any more, I'm fine with them)

Current cases

-PC-9F
-Arc Midi (Maybe, still cramped though)
-Source 220

No more CM 692 since it started looking geeky to me again but Viper still looks good so I'm not insulting Spidermonkey.

I agree with this so much, it was one of closest to perfect that a case have ever gotten from me when I reviewed it.

This case simply has everything a user could want without looking gaudy for only

Source 210 Elite

I use this for a server right now with many hard drives in it.

bump

-PC-9F
-PC-90
-PC-A05FN

Choose between the 3. I added the A05FN since it's my most favorite compact case and probably a good starter's case.

Edit: not so budget anymore. tongue.gif

My money is on the PC-90 although admittedly that is the only one I have worked with our reviewed.

Here where my thoughts on it.

Pros:

+ Light at only 14.77Lbs
+ Smallish for a HPTX capable case
+ Silent fan operation
+ Ten expansion slots
+ Able to user 400mm/15.75" GPU's
+ Removable intake fan filters

Cons:

- No cable routing cutouts
- Only two 5.25" drive bays
