Help with choosing a case, please.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello! I kid you not, I have spent easily over 18 hours PC case browsing for my system and I have only been satisfied by one,
Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 ATX, however with it not having all the filters I am once again stuck so wondered if anyone can give me a solid choice for the following build,

Intel i5 6600 Skylake (not the K version)
Asus H170 PRO Gaming Motherboard
Corsair DDR4 2400mhz 2*8GB
Radeon R9 290 4GB
Hyper EVO 212 Heatshrink
Corsair 750wCXM
500GB SSD
1TB HDD




Ideally I need a solid case that has good airflow, good quality and hopefully not need too many modifications.

Kindest Regards
Jamie

What is the budget that you would like to keep it at? Also are you looking for a Mid-Sized tower or a full tower or open to different options? Do you have a color scheme that you would like it to be? Are you looking for looks, maybe a window, or functionality, something with a side fan for gpu?

well he said 540 so I was thinking he was wanting a squarish case. 540 is ok but caselabs are the best out right now for air, water, and overall everything.

The 540 is an excellent case and there is a complete aftermarket filter set available:

However, knowing your budget as previously mentioned would help narrow down choices.
