I need a new case! - Page 7

post #61 of 64
The three you narrowed it down to are all great cases. I'm going to throw my case into the mix anyway though. I wanted to get the Phantom but it was just a bit out of my price range. My NZXT Tempest Evo has been serving me well. It's quite large for a mid tower case. I have heard others complain of a lack of space behind the motherboard tray for wires, but I fit everything fine. It comes with 6 fans which give me great airflow. I didn't hook up the front lights because the case faces my bed and I didn't want to glow blue as I slept. The two front fans have blue leds which give it a nice look through the grill without being overly bright. It also has a large window on the side panel so you don't have to mod it.

Also, if you're waiting for Ivy Bridge to upgrade your rig, you could always hold off and see what comes out between now and then. Good luck with you build.

Ive owned the Fractal XL, CM 690 II Advanced and now have a Raven RV02-E. If your air cooling the Raven wins hands down, 690 II 2nd and Fractal XL 3rd, but thats maybe to do with the absolute garbage stock fans that come with the Fractal. The Raven comes with the AP181 fans which are immense, silent on low and still shift silly amounts of air, bit noisy on high though.

@Eye So the RCO2 is a good option? I really like the idea of the 90* angle, idk if you get like better temps, but the idea is great. Well see what comes out in the coming months. Tnx thumb.gif +rep
