LFC - Looking for Case

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi all!

I am currently looking for a new home for my hardware, but I am really unsure which case to get. However I do have an idea of what it should

- Clean look (door preferred, but no must)
- 2x front intake (120mm diameter min)
- at least 1 rear exhaust (120mm diameter min)
- top exhaust (120 mm diameter min) nice but no must
- PSU bottom mount
- 3,5" and 2,5" drive bays at 90 angle (in relation to front panel), tool-free nice but no must
- good cable management capabilities
- black interior preferred but no must

I don't favor any special brand, or material steel and aluminium are both fine for me. Price is not a major issue, still I'd like to keep it under 300$.

Any help is greatly appreciated =)

EDIT: Im thinking something like this maybe: Bitfenix Ghost

Cooler Master CM 690 III seems right up your alley, I plan on picking up this case when I get the cash because it's so sleek and has all the features I could need all delivered in a common sense kind of way. The link I provided even includes an all-in-one Seidon 120V in the price. thumb.gif

The only thing I see that doesn't fit your criteria is a front panel door.

Edit:
What country are you from? I searched the site you linked in your edit and couldn't fin this case there. Perhaps there is another site that has it in your country?


Edit 2:
Found out the website you linked is German based so with that information I found a website that lists multiple German retailers that sell this case albeit the non-windowed version.

The CoolerMaster seems nice enough - just a little too much mesh for my taste. Still I'll look into it. Lian Li has some nice options as well as far as I can tell.

This is very true, I was just hoping to save you some money. I'll keep an eye out for more cases that fit your criteria. wink.gif
