Desperate need of a Case

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Well here is my case, been through a ruff time... everything in the case is what I brought my self and the case was a spare part in my house.
Im a student and I'm not rich ( in other words I'm broke ) and in desperate need of a decent case.

Current I have :
1 X HDD ( will be 2 soon )
Gigabyte 990-FXA-UD3
955 BE ( 4.2 ghz overclock )
4 gig ram
Coolit Eco A.L.C ( Soon to be h100i )
Soon Adding ONE SSD

I was thinking about Cool Master Storm Scout, its around £50 ( my budget ) and it looks cool tongue.gif But I am here to ask if anyone knows anything better in the price range ?

Cheaper the better tongue.gif

At the moment my case is terrible, its broken pretty much everywhere. The graphics card slot is bent, so anything will be pretty much good.

Im not looking for the best air flow case but I would like a case that has a decent air flow within my budget.

Thanks for the reply.

The Cooler Master HAF 912 Plus/Advanced Is a no brainer if you like the looks, it has the best airflow capabilities of any cheaper priced cases out there ( and even some more expensive ones) , and the build quality is rock solid.

If you want a handle then I would recommend the Storm Scout 2. My brother has the scout 1 and he had to mod it to fit bigger videocards in it and to make room for a watercooling kit.. tongue.gif Regardless, the HAF912 is the better value.

Even the plain vanilla HAF 912 is an excellent value and cheaper $60 US.

Here's photos of my first HAF 912 basic case meager build from back in October 2011.

 

I added 2 blue 200mm fans, 3 5.25" tool-less and rubber feet to replace the stock plastic ones.
