A good case

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Can anybody recommend me a good case, with cable management, good looks, good air cooling and at a decent price?
Thanks in advance!

Board size: (Properly should have mentioned this at the start)
Extended ATX Form Factor
12 inch x 10.6 inch ( 30.5 cm x 26.9 cm )

What are you putting into it? What kind of aesthetic do you look for in a case, or do you not care so long as it holds your gear? That would help folks make a relevant recommendation.

For a general-purpose machine, try the HAF912 or HAF922 from CoolerMaster. Yes, everybody and their brother has one (or 2) but their popularity has a lot to do with their functionality and price. But, they are a bit on the ugly side.

Edit: "ugly" isn't the right word... "unfriendly" might be a better word for it.

Looking for all the things i listed in the original post, and aesthetic some sort of glow i guess, i allways found things with a red internal glow looked cool. But that does not really matter because its down the side of my desk. And just looked at those cases, they dont look half bad, but i don't love the design on the front and top as that's the most important for me

A NZXT Phantom White w/ Red Led Special Edition. That's what I have, I find it aesthetically pleasing, I'm told it reminds my friends of something from Mass Effect.

Video thanks to Ruvallith.

Sounds a little loud? Is it really that loud or is it just the mic picking it up more

Must be the mic or something, because mine is pretty quiet.

I'd get a Corsair Carbide 500R black (not white); replace all the fans with red led fans and add red led fans.

I would have a thorough look through the NZXT Phantom club thread, there are some amazing case mods people have achieved. But with even the standard selection of Black/Red/White/Pink the cases are amazingly good, great cable management, sleek looks, expansion available in every aspect you can think of.
