Heloo guys,

I cant decide which case to get, I know that they are all good but I cant decide which one is the best

I need case for overclocking(air cooling), good cable management(I really want clean PC) and that it is silent(I am leaving my pc at night so that is why it needs to be silent).

I cant choose between three cases, here is what I think of them:

The CoolerMaster ATCS 840-Case with good airflow, pretty silent(I think) but not good for cable management.

Corsair 800D Obsidian- Case with excellent cable management, but on the other hand loud(louder than atcs?) and not the best airflow(remember I will overclock)

The CoolerMaster Cosmos 1000- The oldest from here, good airflow combained with silent, not sure how good it is for cable management. Is it still the king?

Tnx for help

Well

Coolermaster ATCS 840 does have many fans, only 4 from what I can see

The cosmos 1000 is a ridiculous amount to spend on a case.

And the corsair, OMG, That's just insane.

Why not go with the antec 902 or the CM HAF922/932

Half the price and both good cases. Just an idea.

I think spending 200+ on a case is a waste of money if you're not going to be using it for anything special, like WC or something of that sort.

Overclocking depends on your cooler, and how well your components are... Silence is based on your fans. Neither of which have anything to do with your case.

I'd go with the CM HAF932 or the Antec 1200.

The Cosmos 1000 is awesome, but I heard the airflow isn't that good due to the weakness of the fans that are included.

Out of those 3, I'd choose the ATCS for aircooling.

With that being said, most good aircooling cases are very open with mesh everywhere. It's kind of hard to find a good one that won't transfer noise well.

imo get a tt armor + for cable management and its really nice for air cooling because of the HUGE intake fan

xclio's are good for air cooling too.

really it depends on your style and what you are willing to sacrifice.

the best cases arent manufactured. they are MODDED to the user's needs. this is why lian li has such a good reputation amongst high end cases. they are literally the most plain case ever with nice interiors which is amazing for modding. i myself hate aluminim though cause i think its weak.

i like steel tank cases like the armor+. it weighs 37 pounds empty, about70 pounds with all my stuffs in it, watercooled which isnt a problem for me to lift at all.
