Case Suggestions

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've been upgrading my rig over the past few weeks, and now I've run into a space issue. I currently have a Zalman Z9. It's a great (and cheap) case when I just had an H50 cooler/rad/fans for my CPU. But I just bought a 570 SC with an Antec H60 for it's cooling. My problem is now trying to fit 2 sets of rads/fans in my case. I have to play with the Z9 door open and the H60 rad/fans sitting on the floor. I *think* my only option is to buy a bigger case, though I won't rule out a mod for my current case.

So, does anyone have a suggestion on a budget friendly large case or a mod for my current?

Thanks, thumb.gif

PS "budget friendly" is a loose term. I don't want to shell out $300 for a case, but I'm not afraid to make a small investment.

Lian-Li PC-A75 would be my choice, though it's out of stock at newegg right now and hard to find elsewhere in North America. If you don't want to wait for that, there's plenty of other good options such as the Cooler Master Storm Trooper/Storm Stryker/HAF-X, NZXT Switch 810, Antec 1100/P280, or the Xigmatek Elysium.

I like most of them, but the one that seems the most promising Is the switch 810, specifically for the removable hdd tray. I know I could defiantly mount the rad/fan setup there. +1 thumb.gif
