Looking for a new computer case.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
The hardware I'll be using is in Bones and Black in my sig for the most part. Some additional things I might get are another 980, More samsung Pros, water cooling equipment for the GPUs and more fans to cool everything.

Any suggestions are welcome ofc.

Some features I would like are: lots of space for all this stuff, a much needed addition of at least 3 5.25 bays (4 would be preferable), room for another rad or a bigger rad (don't know which way I'm going with that yet). I'd like it to be somewhat affordable; I wouldn't mind spending $200, but anything more that than it better be a pretty sweet case. I could go caselabs, but not sure if I want to spend that kind of money so if there are other alternatives I would definitely consider them. It doesn't have to look fancy, I actually really like the look of my current low profile NZXT H440, but its a bit too small for my liking and doesn't have a whole lot of room for watercooling stuff. I would like a window for the front so I can see all my tech, the bigger the better. Oh, right almost forgot: I want lots of room on the back end to put all my cords back there without having to worry about what a pain its going to be to get the back piece on. I think that's about it.

Looking forward to seeing some suggestions. smile.gif

Those are some pretty good suggestions and all are fairly well below $200. Rep. The Thermaltake X9 was one that caught my eye. Its a huge case -enough to fit what I am planning on putting in there and then some. I just wonder how practical it would be to get something like that. Its def between that and the Enthoo Luxe. I forgot to mention that I prefer a white finish.
