Need a case :P

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I can't decide on a good case. I want a good case not too expensive, maybe in the 0 << -100$ CAD range.

I want good airflow with at least 2 spaces for 120MM fans. Ex: one in the front, one in the back.

Side fans, yea, but no window please.. Midtower, black colored.. easy to take out the front bezel, maybe a lock/flap on the front.., air ducts maybe?

I was thinking about the Antec 900 but then reading it over, it seems to be a dust box over time...

Please help. Thanks

=x sorry didn't see the middle part.
First one that comes to mind is the Xion Stacker.
Black, Midtower, 3 120mm fans and no side window

EDIT:
Cooler Master Centurion 534 Or the Mystique
NZXT Hush
LIAN LI PC-7B plus II-Great case
Thermaltake Matrix

^-those are all under 100 and have 2 120mm fans

First is see if the TT tower will fit any of the cases lol. I have that on my main rig right now and its pretty massive.

Second:
Are you looking for aesthetics or cooling?

p180 is midtower, u can get it in black, has a lockable front door, no window, and has up to 5x120mm fans. it is a bit over $100, but totally worth it.

Cooling is a first, then it will be for looks

@gwidion
Not worth it, I know many people who have it, they say it has horrible cable management and has bad cooling.

On a side note, will the TT fit on the 965P-DS3?

the cable management takes a bit longer, but it can be done. as far as cooling, i dunno who you are talking to, but the p180 has amazing cooling.
