Another "Help me choose case" thread

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
So as im having a lots of pain when we talking about cleaning pc from the dust i decided to get a case and put a testbench i made to rest for some time smile.gif It could be a full ATX tower or midi tower smile.gif also must have a top fans and some cable management smile.gif And if you guys have a suggestions ( really it should fit in price range like that fractal design core 3k maybe a lil bit higher and can be found in dat banana land lithuania)
So was searching through shops and found couple of cases that interested me a lot:
1. LEPA LPC302 REWIEW
Its kinda great minimalistic looking case with eough pluses
2. Fractal Design Core 3000 ( This looks like: LUKE I AM YOUR FATHER SO C"MON JOIN ME ON THE DARK SIDE biggrin.gif )
3. NEXUS THRIO 310 ( It has no cable management...) linky
4. Xilence ATX MONTCLAIR LINKY

Switch 810. It fits all your criteria and the design isn't TOTALLY minimalistic, it isn't some angular monstrosity either. It also comes in black or white. I personally went with white.

Filters? Check.
Top fans? Check.
Full tower? Check.
Nice cable management? Check
Minimalistic? IMO, yes.

Xigmatek Midgard II , Asgard Pro, Corsair 600TM More or less minimalistic and yet not budget cases.

I wanted to get a Midgard II recently but it is not available - Perhaps you may have more luck there .

I wanted understated as well. I went with the Lian-Li V2120.
It's Monolithic, clean and silent. Best purchase I could have made.
MoBos come and go but this case is good for as long as PCs use boards.
Tonnes of room for anything as well as inboard liquid cooling.
The CD is there for scale.
The MoBo looks tiny but that is a fully loaded EATX RIVE in there.
Good luck which ever choice you make.
