Case size

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Could someone tell me whether this case will be big enough for my build?

Looking at this: http://www.scan.co.uk/products/xclio-touch-320-full-black-mid-tower-case-with-2x120mm-blue-led-silent-blade-fans-w-o-psu

Reason I want it is because its a good price and has a pretty cool fan controller on the front, which i think might be important for me to reduce noise when im watching films etc in bed.

Im going to have an SSD, possible a HDD, a HD6870, a 212 Hyper fan and a 700w PSU. Not sure if other components matter?

Take it from me mate.. you dont want an XCLIO case, they are trash.

The Corsair 300R should be here soon, Great for airflow to the gpu area, with cages for the hdd ( that are parralel to the front of the case.. meaning that you get better cable management)

There's nothing wrong with Xclio, I know people who have them and like them. They are not top of the line by any means but for the price they are decent.

I don't see any reason why that wouldn't work fine with your parts.

Thanks.

Andrew, any reason why you think that?

To be honest its only going to cost me £35 so i can spend elsewhere, and like i said i like the features it has.

How much will that case cost and when will it be available in the UK?

I could get this for £90

Comes with a PSU. could anyone tell me how good the case and PSU will be?
