post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Need a case for around $40 to $60 ish with awesome airflow. Because I like my shiznit cool. Will be running a hyper 212 evo in it.

Suggestions?

Perhaps a Haf 912? Its on amazon for 60. It is after all High Air Flow, i own a Haf XM and its just got a crazy amount of fans in it. I dont use the computer, but on the rare chance i do it has crazy air flow.

I'm not opposed to the 912. Its still a possibility. Been thinking about the tempest 210 or 410 .. Anyone have an opinion about those two? or any other cases that are like a wind tunnel lol

My favourite "as cheap as possible but great airflow" ATX case is the CM Elite 371. Floor, 2x side panel and 2x roof fan positions for just a bunch of bucks.

The 212 EVO fits inside, I've tested it.

Went with the Nzxt Tempest 410 after much deliberation. Awesome case. If anyone is on the fence between the regular 410 and the elite version. The Regular 410 may not come with a windowed side panel but you can mount 3 fans there. That's why I chose it over the elite. Was cheaper, just as good if not better in design. And you can fit a radiator in the top as well.
