Can you suggest a case? - I have quite specific requirementd

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm currently running the set-up in my sig in an Antec 200. Having just moved to a full atx motherboard a new PSU as well as two GPUs my case is now pretty full. I have modded the Antec 200 to add cable management holes and run a lot of cables round the back, but I'm pretty limited with the amount of space behind the motherboard tray and the space in general.

So I'm looking for a new case. My must have requirements are:
Full tower,
Side Window (doesn't have to be the full side though)
Black interior
Side fan for GPUs (at least 120mm)

I will be using some fans from my current setup. These are all blue LEDS and I would like to keep with this theme. I'm from the UK and my budget is around £100 (about $160US).

Two that I have seen are the Cooler Master HAF X but this is a bit too expensive and comes with Red LED fans so I would have to spend even more changing them. The other case I have spotted is the Thermaltake Overseer but this looks a bit too like a transformer for me, I want something a bit more subtle.

Sorry for being so fussy but if anyone has any recommendations I'd love to hear them. thanks.

corsair 600t.

not a full tower but has the rest of the features you are looking for.

Or the HAF 932 Blue looks perfect for what you are looking for.

@ vitality Thanks but the 600T that doesn't meet my must have requirements. I want a full tower and it must have a window and a side fan, this case seems to come either with a window or side mesh but not a window and side fan. The Haf932 blue looks great but then I saw interior was not black, though I could paint it. However, I'm form the UK and I can't find that case for sale any where. Thanks anyway though.

Thanks for the replies, All good suggestions and i have checked them out, but they are not quite what I'm looking for or are too expensive. the only one that ticks all the boxes at the moment is the Thermaltake Overseer, but I'm just not too sure its a bit too "teenagers bedroom" for me. I'm 30 and it will go in my study. I could do with seeing it in the flesh but that's not possible as no where sells it other than online.
