Looking for a new case.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi

I am looking for a new PC case, at the moment i got the following case:



The problem with this case is that the cable mangment is very bad. I got so many cables and it makes me crazy. My CPU cooler also doesn't fit very well.

Is it possible to have a case with good airflow but low on dust?

What case do you recommend for:

1) good cable managment,
2) much space
3) space for CPU watercoolings like the corsair H100 so it can be "future proof" if i ever get one of these in the future

Thanks

If you can wait a bit, Xigmatek has a few new cases that will be coming out in the next month or so that will meet your requirements. I can't be more specific at this time because these are new, unannounced products - but I'm positive you'll be glad you waited.

Xigmatek cases generally feature cutouts to ease the mounting of CPU coolers and also for cable management. They have tool-free retainers for external and internal drive bays. The cases also feature lots of space for fans and have dust filters.

I am the marketing/community manager for Xigmatek which is why I know there's lots of interesting stuff that is headed your way very very soon. Best of all, Xigmatek has a reputation for offering excellent value on our products.

I'm really impressed with my Corsair C70. I'm an air-cooled guy but there is a lot of room in it for water cooling and the provisions for cable management are excellent. For a mid sized case it seems very large. You'll have to compare the specified cooler clearance vs. your height... The white version is on sale at newegg today for $80 - AND a $10 MIR. Follow in the link in my signature for more information... it's a sturdy, form follows function - down to business case.

Black C70 is on sale @ newegg for $30 off AND $20 off w/ promo code cmptupgrd2 ends 2/11 AND there's also a $20 rebate. so she's $69.99 (after about a month to get the rebate back...) That's 50% off.

Anything Corsair makes.

The Obsidian Series is very good if you want a HUGE case with a lot of modding ability.
