Need help buying a new case - Page 2

Yeah those cases will prob be too long, I have been looking at the 500r, which looks identical inside to the c70 I wanted previously, just more sleek. Is the 500r pretty good?

It looks pretty decent but i don't have experience with it. Specs are good, looks roomy, places for lotsa fans (200mm on side even), removable cages... Was considering getting it at one point but wanted a bigger case.

edit:

just saw this

64.99+shipping for a C70. not bad. depends how much shipping is

The 500r is a pretty good case IMHO, you should be pretty happy with it overall!

Nothing turned me OFF from the XB, I love it. but the area where I was going to put it, is no longer available (me and family stay together and desk is in living room, furniture was moved) and the only other area to put it, is where my Mid-tower is. I WILL be buying the XB in the future for sure...lol.

I have roughly 22 inches high, and 10 inches in width to work with, and at those measurements, no room for exhaust/intake on tops or sides, so 20/21 by 8/9 is a better ideal number. I'm realllllly stuck on the c70 or 500r.

Ok, it's down to the antec 1100 and the c70. Both have exactly what I need, I'm leaning towards the 1100 in look and sleekness, but I like the all metal of the c70, no plastic. .,..sigh.

I don't know about the antec,but the c70 has dust filets,awesome case managemnt,and handles.The handles are great to have,if you work on your rig as ofter as I do.

As far as the gpu sagging and breaking the motherboard,I never heard one doing it,unless there's a 2 lb. weight on it. So,I think you are stressing out about it.

I won't really be moving the case all too much....ok, the final decider I guess is the fans. C70 has bottom inside fan (by PSU) is this good for intake considering how close it is to the ground? And the antec has the fan behind the motherboard, is that necessary unless I'm doing crazy OCing? Lastly the top exhaust, antec seems to be smaller than the c70...
