Looking for a good PC case?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Hello,
I'm building a PC but I can't decide on a case. I'm looking for something that is unique (not just like plain solid colors all around) but still a good case for cooling, bays, etc. I'd definitely prefer if it had a large windowed side but that's not a necessity. Finally, I'd prefer it to be below $150 (the cheaper the better) if possible.
What are my options?
Thanks! smile.gif

NZXT Source 530 is a very good priced case for what it offers.

Check out Thermaltake Core V71 (http://www.overclock.net/t/1488984/thermaltake-core-v71-owners-club)

It's a newly released case that provides a TON of airflow with 2x200mm front intake fans and up to 2x200mm top exhaust fans.
Interior is absolutely huge and it can fit any CPU cooler you can throw at it.

Cheers!

I like my c70, it comes in white, black or army green! Have you thought about painting a case you like the look of?

No complaints with mine, loving it. Around 60 bucks, great cooling and cable routing http://www.overclock.net/t/1038918/the-cooler-master-storm-enforcer-club/0_50

WOW. I really like this one. It is a little on the expensive end (at least for what I'm looking for) but it looks like it's worth it.

If I painted it, would it look as nice as the stock paint? I'll consider it.
