Buying new case but which one?

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Hey,

I am buying a new case and I don't know which one if better with my components.

I will be using the same components as in my sig rig.

Price doesn't matter.

All I want is good cooling, nice window to see internals, maybe a side fan on the window for more cooling on the Graphics card and LED's.

I only have a couple in mind now but if anyone can give me a beter case then one of these three or help me choose one I would be very thankful.

Choices

Corsair Obsidian 650D

CoolerMaster CM 690 II Advanced with Window

CoolerMaster CM Storm Sniper Black Edition with Window

Anymore choices that are good?

Thank you

You wont go wrong with the Corsair Obsidian 650D, it's engineered and designed so perfectly and beautifully. It's got a brushed aluminium front panel, powdered coated steel chassis so it looks amazing and is stupid strong. The cable management design is second to none, 9 grommets to organise cables and ambles space behind the right side panel. 8 PCI slots, so you can Quad-sli, it's a big midtower so watercooling even with massive 50mm think rads is not a problem. 6 harddrive caddy's, both are removable and totally tooless, even to remove. You cant go wrong with the 650D man.
