Hi,

Im looking to get a new case, not staright away but soon. yes befor anyone says whats wrong with your FT02, well nothing, just a bit bored of it TBH, after 6 months the novelty has worn off, lol.

Well my budget is about £140 Max,
I need a case that can handle my Sig RIG,
Not that fussed about being able to water cool,
Dont mind if its big or small as long as it has good airflow
and good with cables.

Also very tempted to go with either: Fractal Design Define XL Titanium Grey
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/fract...r-case-w-o-psu

Or Coolermaster HAF-X (Not sure about this one though)

Any Sugestions??????

NOT: Antec 900, 902 or 1200 (hate those cases with a passion)



Thanks

Oh that case looks really nice! Hm... wonder if ncix delivers to the states. I understand your boredom of cases. I get bored too and change it up too. I started out with a Gigabyte Aurora 570, then Antec 900, now HAF 932. HAF X has great management of cables---although the styling is very unique. So if you want great functionality, then go for it, if you care about looks, I would go with the Fractal designed case, that looks good!

I can't decide thoug if the functionality of the HAF out weighs the design and practicality of the Fractal? to sacrifce those few degrees of extra cooling with the HAF for the fractal? :S

Go with the Fractal! Or go with the HAF X and change it up when you're bored. The HAF X is huge though...

Fellow UK citizen here and I use scan, maybe this:

The Fractal Design looks very nice and is good from what I've heard however the XL is supposedly a let down compared to the mid tower design.

Cheers for the responce. But why would i want to go from an FT02 to an RV02 they are essentialy the same case except the RV02 has less features and looks virtualy the same? lol :-|

Oh yea, sorry, they do have a different look though :O

I'd probably go wit the Fractal XL or something like this if they were in my budget:
