Case for New Build - Recommendations?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've always been a huge fan of NZXT and used their cases for many of my builds. I love how unique their cases look with sleek angles and color choices. The ones I've dealt with always appeared to be built with high quality parts and were easy to build in. Off the top of my head, I've owned three Phantoms, two Phantom 410s, Switch 810, and I believe either a Phantom 630 or 820.

For my new build, I have been considering the NZXT Noctis 450, H440 in Red/Black or Blue/Black, or just defaulting to one of the Phantom models as they've never let me down. Does anyone know where to purchase a Blue/Black H440, by the way? I've found every other color choice but can't seem to locate one of them for purchase.

I'm certainly open to something new it's just that I've looked through all the cases on Newegg and Amazon and yet to see much else that I'd enjoy looking at every day. I'm not a fan of tiny cases as I have large hands and they're a huge pain to build in. I also don't like bland, purely rectangular cases or ones that have a ton of mesh. Windows are always a huge plus but I guess not required. I appreciate bold, unique cases but certainly nothing extravagant or ridiculously colorful.

What would you guys recommend? Are there other options out there or ones that will be released in the near future that may interest me? Is there any reason not to purchase the ones I'm considering or any factors that makes one option better than the rest?

Thanks for the help!

The Phanteks cases do look nice. I haven't heard much about them before, tbh. I will do a bit more research on them.

Please keep the suggestions coming if you guys have anymore. I'm kind of stuck in deciding the rest of my build until I know the specs and color scheme of the case it will be built in.

Thanks! thumb.gif
