Case for a 1155 gaming comp

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hi

Building a gaming comp in the coming weeks, 2500k and 570gtx, although I'm not sure what case to get. I've seen a lot of suggestions being thrown around, but I don't have access to every case, these are the places I could buy from:

http://www.msy.com.au/Parts/PARTS.pdf (just search 'without power supply' and you'll get to the list of cases and their prices)

or this place, the difference being I won't be able to pick it up locally, and have to get it shipped, although if its worth it, I would:

http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?...index&cPath=25 (I heard the corsair 600t was a good case, and that white one looks awesome )

If you have a case to suggest, could you please write why you have have suggested it, I want to understand everything fully before making my purchase

Hope you can help

Well,

There are a few epic, and I mean EPIC cases out there.

The 600t as far as cases go is good but not the best when it comes to airflow but is good looking. The HAF932 which looks like crap but is just awesome when it comes to airflow.

My personal choice would have to be a nice lian li, something like Lian Li PC-60FNWX

I have a Lian Li Lancool PC-K62. Lian Li is a highly respected case designer/manufacturer, so you can't go wrong there.

A mid-tower Cooler Master, like the Storm Scout is always a popular choice as well.

I would suggest the HAF 932. It has great cable management features, lots of room for long graphics cards such as the 6990 or if you decide to watercool in the future (space for a 360mm radiator in the top), lots of mounting points for fans (comes with 3 200mm fans and a 140mm at the back) and lots of connectivity options on the front panel (4 USB 2.0, firewire, eSATA, microphone and headphone jacks.

In terms of full vs mid, i'll only be putting in one 570gtx for now, but if I can find another one cheaper next year, I may add a second. Also, I'll be going with a standard 3.5 hdd for now, but may want to add a ssd later on. I think a mid tower will fit all my needs, but what do you guys suggest, full or mid?
