Looking for a new case... suggestions?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So, my salvaged P182 is starting it's rattling issues again (it was originally bashed in with a foot... pounded it out with a mallet, but just isn't the same.)

It's also getting a little old for me... Anyways, I'd like...

-Side window/fan (or mesh, so I could mount one).
-Quiet mode (I have a fan controller, so as long as I could turn down all the fans, so it could enter a 'sleep mode' where it still runs, but runs quietly so I can still sleep biggrin.gif)
-Keep it cool, my 6950 reference runs a little hot when running some games.

Some things that would be nice, but don't really mind
-Blueish theme, I have many blue fans, so I'd like to reuse them
-SSD mount [sideways mount with a 2.5 is kinda awkward in the P182]
-I have 2 hard drives, looking to get a 3rd, so 4 slots would be nice.

I'm currently eyeing the CM Storm series, more specifically the trooper and sniper. (Scout doesn't quite hit it for me?)
Looking to keep it under $100 if possible. or right around.

Thanks guys.

Any of these would look/work very well for you. They all offer fantastic cable management and plenty of slots for hdd's/ssd's.

All of these cases are rock solid with fantastic cooling/ventilation. thumb.gif

Perfect.

Any more suggestions?

I'm digging the 500R, will take a look, wish they had the black one for $70, too.

I personally don't really like the Phantom 410.
I worked, built in one, just no real appeal to me.
The Scout 2 is a little...short and stubby.

I love the look the Storm series give, kinda strong looks, but somewhat non-flashy with all the dark accents, but if I turned up all the fans, it would turn into a very mean case very quickly...

Hmm..
Any more?
