Rough, sturdy case

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
As you might have guessed, I need a rough, sturdy and durable case. I managed to break the front panel off of my Carbide 300R, or a similar model. I can never remember which one I have. Either way, It is a very nice case and all, but the plastic front panel did not last. What I need is a steel/aluminium case or something of the like which can handle a few bumps. I lug my case around every now and again, but weight is really not an issue for me. What the issue IS however, is that I do not have a lot of options if I am going to order from within the country. Basically, it is either buying from a limited selection, or paying a bit more to get one shipped from Amazon or NewEgg, etc.
Cases I have been looking at for the most part (also the site I mainly use): https://www.komplett.no/search?bn=10149&category=10149_Kabinetter%2FBarebone&q=*%3A*&sort=Price%3AASCENDING&subcategory=10151_Big+tower

Now I would really prefer a full/big tower, since they seem (though I am probably wrong) to better at cooling and (obviously) room. I have considered putting water cooling in my case as well, so keep that in mind. I had a look at the HAF X, though people are saying that the standard fans are not very reliable, and it is one monster of a case and it is probably unnecessarily large for my needs.
I might buy a new motherboard, so an ATX compatible (or similarly large boards) would be preferred.
Thanks in advance.

EDIT: I am an idiot. The 300r is a midi case, so midi is still an option of course.

If you're not too worried about cost. Caselabs seems to be the one to get. Lotsa differend models and fully customizable. And most importantly, no plastic. Thatll be my next pc case for sure.

I used to use the Corsair C70 (sorry I did look on the website but I don't think they stock it, Amazon should though) its all steel/Aluminium, very strong has handles on the top for moving it around and is very durable. I used to move my PC all the time (between uni and my parents house) in the back of my car and it never suffered any blows and kept all my hardware safe.

Its also very easy to build in and flexible in terms of cooling and storage ect. Here is the owners club if you're interested.

That would be pretty much exactly what I am looking for, exact same use as you. This looks great! Def. going to consider this one.
