Help Me Pick Please

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hello All!,

Well I have a GA-MA790GP-DS4H with a ATX form factor and it's dimensions are 12.0" x 9.6".

I am looking for the PSU to be located on the bottom of the case. This case must beable to fit at least 2x CD Drives and 2x HD, I have been told my HS and VGA maybe a problem with some case cuase of their size and fan locations. I will need a top vent, along with MB back vents.

I have looked into "Tech Stations" but they do not supply the cooling needed for my current setup.

Current Cases I am looking into.

Thanks a lot of choices, hake you looking into the NZXT Guardian 921. It's about £60 and looks cool too.

I would go for the Antec Nine hundred I like the case, it cools very good and you can put a lot of stuff in it...

I really like my cm-690 for the room inside and all the fans....but i like my antec 900 because of the side window....better cable management with the coolermaster though(without any mods) either is a fine choice....Good luck

I second that. The Nine Hundred is just the best out there for the price. The air flow is unbeatable.

Add 2 front fans and a side fan (if your comparing that) to an Antec 300 and you have the airflow of a 900.
