Need suggestions for new computer case

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I have a temporary Antec 900 case that my friend is letting me borrow. I like the case okay but is kind of cramped and has no cable management. So any suggestions on a new case ideally I would like it to:

-have a open viewing window
-good cable management
-good air flow
-and in come for less that $180

Thankyou smile.gif

RV02-E. cable management is not the best, but doable.

What about the Thermaltake Overseer RX-I? Seems like a decent size and not at a bad price... rolleyes.gif

It's not a window so much as huge mesh side panel but dreamy internals, Corsair 500R:

Or for something more wild looking there is the Coolermaster Storm Enforcer, and it's cheap, I have the Storm Scout which is a similar design minus the cable management:

corsair carbide 400r-500r are amazing cases! I have the 300r right now and i love it! the 400r and 500r, are a little bit bigger then the 300r and have a little better cable management.

400r: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811139008

500r: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811139010

500r is 20$ off right now with promo code: EMCNGHN23

That is a heck of a deal for that case thumb.gif

I suggest the Switch 810 smile.gif (not perfect cable managements but the case is perfect for its low price)

Thanks guys I really like the looks of the NZXT Switch 810, and seems to have a lot of the features that I have been wanting, dominox64 is that the case you have?

Let's see here. (The looks part of these are obviously my opinion)

Raven RV02: Best Airflow I've ever seen in a case ever, spacious and cable management definitely isn't bad. Looks are minimalistic (which I love)

Corsair 400/500R: Great airflow, great cable management (Corsair always does excellent in this department), looks aren't bad (depending on what you think of L.E.D.s)

Fractal Arc Midi:Not too spacious, good airflow, good cable management. Fractal is super minimalistic always in their looks. Pretty middle of the road case

Switch 810: Great airflow, cable management is pretty standard for NZXT meaning good (though not as great as Corsair or Fractal imo), looks are eh. Most NZXT cases look the same to me.

HAF Series: Pretty much the same as the Corsair 400R/500R with a little more airflow, little less cable management, and a very solid build. (had a friend who dropped his 4 feet while he was gaming and it kept on chugging without a hitch)

Hope these help
