best lower cost cases for OCing?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for a case that's relatively inexpensive to put some 120mm fans and either put a corsair 80i or 100i in there. I want case that's real easy to cool but not to bad on my budget.

Check out Fractal Design. Awesome cases, even better prices. I use an Arc Midi v1 myself.

Any Case. Also long as you dont bit a old beige thing or some thing only cost $30 you will be fine with the right cable management

If your putting the Corsair AIO in a case that you want on the cheap grab the 200R

Just look for any case with a bunch of fan mounts/holes. The cheapest case; but with the most ventilation will do the best job for what you want to do. A case is a case; it just holds your things up. Really; if you want a low cost case; mount your motherboard in a cardboard box.... perfect for overclocking because you can mod the box with as many holes as you want wink.gif

Just kidding, but seriously; any case with a lot of vents will do. Goto newegg or something and look for cases and list it from lowest price to high.... and then pick from there.
