Case for my RIG

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi,
I want to buy a new case, since my components don't really fit in my old crap-case.
I have no idea which case I should buy and how much I "should" spend. I don't need the best of the ultra best, I just want something where my components fit good and the cooling is good

My components:
Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3-B3
i7-2600K - still stock cooler
(still thinking which GPU to get, prolly something between 560ti-580)
Corsair TX850

I think thats all info that matters for cases, i guess

If the want a good looking case the get a corsair 600t, the hdd cases are modular therefore can be rolodex to allow clean air to be blown over the gpu area. And like all the corsair cases it has great cable management with rubber grommets.

Silence? Mid-Tower/Full Tower? Sleek looking/plain geeky looking w tons of LEDs?

Silent Mid-Tower:

Fractal Define R3

Performance Mid-Tower w/ potential for WCing:
HAF 932 (great aircooling) / NZXT Phantom for looks
Contenders:
Fractal R3 XL(not WC friendly, but silent)
Corsair Carbide 500r (great aircooling, matching HAF 932, but looks alot better, comes in black/white w/ white LEDs)
650d (meh for aircooling, great materials, and sleek look)

Full Tower: These will not feel at home on a desk
HAF-X (great value for money for XL-ATX support and unmatched air cooling
800d (expensive, great for watercooling, meh for aircooling)
TJ-07 (Great potential for modding, expensive tho)

My recommended cases are bolded and italic.

Tyvm, i didn't really know what's important when it comes to cases. ^^
I want good cooling, I don't really care about looks or any fancy stuff, I just want good performance for a good price.
I am going to use air-cooling only. Silence is not one of my main priorities.
Mid-Tower/Full Tower - whatever is cheaper or brings better performance, since it doesn't have to fit anywhere it will just stand on my desk. ^^

I was looking at some cases for about 50€: Cooler Master Elite 330

And what is ATX support?
