post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Hey ocn im doing my first build around Christmas, just trying to get all my stuff together. im looking for a nice budget case to keep my components cool. i can fluctuate around $60 prefer lower but if there is a case that is absolutely worth it i can go higher. these are the specs for the pc,
- i5 2500k
- cooler master hyper 212plus
- asrock z77 extreme 4
- evga gtx 670 ftw
those should be the parts that matter anyways about space lol, thanks in advance!

Cooler Master HAF 912 maybe? It's $60 and seems to fit your needs (also HAF is known as a good air cooling case).

NZXT source 220. $39.99 after rebate at the egg. I just built a rig with this case and it was decent to work with. The entire case is pretty flimsy but I don't think you will find anything better in its price range.

i hear the cheaper haf cases are not as good for price to performance. but i was thinking a haf 912 if it can fit a gtx 670 in it

Cooler Master 690 ii advanced. You might have to wait for it to go on sale but I snagged mine for just $50.

definitely considering that case, it looks very nice! how is the air flow? better than the haf 912?

I will recommend this case as well. You really can't beat it for the price.
