Looking for a new case.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello! I'm looking to buy a new MID computer case to compliment these parts (SEE BELOW). I want one with plenty of airflow, room for expansion, etc. Here's the catch do they make any that are modern looking? I want it to match the decor of my home which is modern. I've been looking at the Corsair Obsidian http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811139006. Is there anything better than that? I REALLY LIKE the BitFenix Prodigy in red, but I don't think it's the right size.. Do they make any mid sizes cases like that? I have no idea what to get. frown.gif

Mid-Towers:
Corsair 550D

Full-Towers:
NZXT Switch 810
Fractal Design Define XL

I listed a couple of full towers since the size of the 650D despite being a mid tower makes its proportions pretty big as well.

These are just the few I could think of, off the top of my head.

Thank you for the recommendations! I thought no one was going to reply to my thread. biggrin.gif. I think I'm sold on the 650D. I heard the stock fans are loud, so I'm going to buy some aftermarket ones. Can you recommend some to me? Possibly with red LED's.



Thanks!

Get cooler master megaflows with red led's. But you will need to move the hdd cage to left because its 30mm thick

Awesome! The specs say I can fit 2 200MM fans, and 1 120MM fan. Is that it or is there room for more? If so, how many should I get? Will the 3 be enough?

I would suggest getting two 140mm fans for the top of the case and a 200mm for the front intake and then one 120mm for the rear of the case. I have the 650d btw. Also you could mount more but it would require modding the case. For example you could take out the drive bay area and replace it with the same mesh that covers the front 200mm fan so you can add an extra fan. Imo it's not worth it.
