So I need a new case...

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
So, my current case, the Cooler Master Elite 430 is pretty terrible for my needs, not only that but it's kinda falling apart (Side panel broke D:). So basically I'm looking for a new case that's a little bigger than this current one and has good airflow. I have my eyes on the Corsair Carbide 500R but I want to know your opinions on it or any other alternatives that may be better.

My PC specs are on my signature below.

Thanks.

I have a non-window version of this case smile.gif

Plenty of Lian Li cases on sale right now at the egg, look around a bit and see what suits your needs.

Fractal Midi, R3 are two great mid tower cases. Cheap price, amazing build quality for the dollar

Nzxt has many great cases out, Phantom, Phantom 410, Switch 810 amazing company
Both are amazing companies Imo, take a peek at those and see what you like. thumb.gif

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. That Fractal Arc Midi looks really tempting, I'm really liking the minimalistic look.

I vote the arc midi as well! Think it's a great looking case, even better with a window mod.

It's a great price as well

Kool! I have that case and it's great! I was able to get it for $69 free shipping on a shell shocker @ newegg! I couldn't pass it up. Just make sure you don't get confused since there is an Arc Midi and an Arc Mini thumb.gif
