Best PC Case for the money, and modding? - Page 2

post #11 of 21
Thread Starter 
The X Predator is cool as heck. Too bad its waay over my budget aswell. The Zalman 11 plus seems the best choice if i was going for mid-tower case. Aswell as X1 predator. Also, X Predator doesnt really have much of the antidust filters ready. But thats not really an issue as i said previously. Also as much as the Phanteks Enthoo Luxe goes. Its waay over my budget for a mid-tower case.

Bought the X a year ago around ~$133 (converted). How much is it right now at your local store ?

Any of the Phanteks or Fractal cases. Skip on Corsair and Cooler Master cases, they suck (I've owned numerous of them).

Alot of people would disagree with you on that.

A lot of people like cheap plastic cases that are poorly designed with cut corners galore I guess.

I will agree, fractal R4 has great airflow, I loves it. Fractal cases are built really solid; giving a nice base for modding it without breaking as easily as some.

its really made for fans, assuming u don't wanna watercool... but if u want room for check the Arc-midi

I hear good things about the CM HAF series from thier loyal fololwing.

*corsairs cases, are sadly on the side of flimsy, even though they have a good blueprint*

^ HAF series is horrible. Stay far away. Doesn't get more much more cheap plastic and cut corners than the HAF X which isn't even good at what it's advertised for (air flow...)

And before I start getting attacked for being a "troll" or "hater" Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I have to agree, I don't care for the HAF's personally, since I like to move my case and its components around... they feel cheap... but I do have a couple friends that swear by them for airflow.

Although it may not have the airflow you are looking for.
