What case out of these should I get?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for a case that is just as good as the Antec Sonata II.

I'm wondering if these cases are good:

THERMALTAKE Soprano Mid Tower Case w/430W PSU & Window Panel - Black

THERMALTAKE AGUILA BLACK CASE WITH 430W PSU

icute 0408SL with a Antec 500w smartpower 2.0

Thanks to anyone that helps

I'm only limited to a small amount of cases because i'm not buying online only in store.

The cases that I can only get are from the following stores:

Oh, well I was only really suggesting that because I have one for sale right now, but I noticed you were in Australia anyways, which would be insane shipping charges.

I checked that case out and I don't really find it attractive, that's why I want a case that is great like the Sonata II but I dont want the Sonata II because I think it's ugly.

I'd go with the aguila, if only because of the removable HD bay. a removable cage is always a plus when you're installing/migrating a rig and hiding wires.
but that's my .02

Can you get Cooler Master cases? If so, get the Centurion. Very good case for cheap.

i had 2 aquila, on 2 builds, the case is good, good airflow, it fits the tuniw tower 120,


however, do not take the window one, the side panel is cheap built and scratches easly

so aquila is good eanough,ahh.. forgot to mention, one of the cases had watercooling, and did fit nicely inside ..

Antec SonataII and the

THERMALTAKE Soprano Mid Tower Case w/430W PSU

I'm just hoping the power supply on the thermaltake is good quality that wont ruin my pc and not a cheap thing.
