Cheaper case?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I was going to go with this case but it seems so expensive. The reason I originally chose it was for the amount of fans I can put in if needed, easy cable management, and its ability to easily accomodate a 8800 gtx and tuniq tower but I was wondering if there are any good cases out the that are a little cheaper but still have plenty of room. I am als looking for good airflow.

thx!

Xclio A380 - Two 250mm fans

Thermaltake Armor - Lots o space and 250mm fan

Raidmax Katana
- Great price and also one 250mm fan

Aerocool Extreme Engine 3t - Great airflow and 250mm

*All cases come in either black or silver.

As you can see I'm a big fan of big fans. The large size means high airflow, over 100cfm and low noise. I own the Aerocool 3t and I never go above 26c in my case. This way you won't have to spend lots of money on more fans and you will have a lot less noise without a loss in cooling capacity.

Take a look at their Centurion line - many people on these forums have this case and can vouch for the high quality and versatility of this case - I am one of them!

Your suggestions were great but actually i noticed a deal on the case I had for a free cpu which I could resell and bring the case price to more like $210. If I do decide to change cases I will go with the katana, tt armor or one of the high end centurions.
