Need advice on new case (C70) [please respond ASAP!] - Page 2

One of the problems I have with my case is portability. I live in a college dorm, and I have to move it from home, to here, back home, etc. That's one of the reasons why I like the handles on top of the C70.

U could look into the Cooler Master HAF X, it does come with wheels plus that case is built like a tank. Also, the Cooler Master Storm Trooper has a handle. But I am gonna be biased and say get the Switch 810. Best bang for the buck and the watercooling options on the case is tremendous.

So I'm looking at buying an 800D. Should I wait until the 900D comes out? Will the 800Ds price drop?

650D The Best

You can mount a 360 or a 280 on the top, some of the rad gets blocked for the 360 but it's actually not that big of a deal. Then you can mount a 240 with push/pull on the bottom, and keep a hard drive cage, or mod the front if you are so inclined.

I love my C70, it's portable, aesthetically pleasing, and almost completely metal. The latches are a synch to open and close, and the green color looks great, and can even be an excellent base for a quick camo paintjob.

Buy the C70, unless you're a crazy OCer.
