seconds away from ordering a completelye new rig. need case

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I'm literaly seconds away from ordering my new build,,, but i can't seem to decide on a case i'm thinking of this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119094

but dont know what i want to do , or if this will be cool enough with the single 120mm fan :S

input is appreciated.

also i really am liking the thermaltake soprano.

That is a nice case (centurion) for cooling. I used one for about a month, but found it was too small.

I also thought that the "pillars" made it look a little silly, but that is just IMHO.

Like I said, good for cooling.

Maybe consider something larger if yo plan on doing alot (often) work in it.

...just about any Lian Li is excellent.

Or my dream case: The Mozart TX http://www.thermaltakeusa.com/produc...x/MozartTX.htm

Whatever you choose, I would get cases that support a 120mm fan up front and another on the backside.

I am going to be moving from the Armor( great case by the way) to the motzart soon. The aurora is a real nice case aswell. What kinda budget do you have for the case? Lian li cases are nice but abit pricey.

Just picked up this case from these guys.....got it to me in 2 days ground shipping and a sweet price I might add, I'll definitely shop these guys again. Antec Nine Hundred. The cooling options are just insane and the best case for air cooling I've seen yet. Haven't had a chance to set everything up but airflow to the cpu will just be fantastic with the adjustable front intakes. I also picked up the brand new scythe ninja, one fitted for am2, Scythe Ninja Rev. B. Will post some pics when I get around to playing with it this week.
