please recommend me a case (good air+quiet)

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Hi, i'm building a gaming rig. I'll put in it a gtx 570, one ssd and a 2500k. Atx format.

I'm not planning to start oc'ing (still i love this forum that's why i ask here), nor i'm an extreme oc'er. but i probably will once games stop working well at maxed out settings. i'd rather have it killed at 4.5 ghz than to throw a working unit to the trash.

I was initially adviced the lian a05bn but i read at newegg that cooling ain't one of its best features. My budget is around.... well, i think for $100 i should get a good case. but i could spend up to, say 160.

Don't care about side panels and lights, they won't be visible anyway. Some little blue light in the front won't hurt, but i can go with a simple black case. Only need 2 front slots (1 dvd combo + 1 free sock just in case i add something else). And no need many hdd trays. i'll use a ssd by now, and maybe, just maybe i will put a high capacity in the future.

Not really necessary, but i'd like it to have some kind of sound and usb (3.0 would be awesome, specially because that means it's a quite modern case) inputs somewhere accesible (better top, or otherwise in front).



So, in short:

-quiet, please.
-about $100-160
-average plus to good plus cooling airflow (i'm not extreme oc¡er, so dont need a monster expsnive thing, but id really like to have a cool system).
-no lights/transparent panels needed
-if possible, a modern case, with some usb and sound connectors. if usb 3.0, great!

As a side note, i wonder what of these i might need: cpu cooler, gpu cooler. Not like huge tall & heavy tower coolers, but i value more quietness + really good cooling over how it looks.

Thanks you so very much in advance for the answers. I'm spanish so availability of latest cases might be a little harder than fetching them off newegg, but let's see if i find a good one.

Hi man thanks for the fast response. I'm not really against panels and lights and many frontal trays, but well, then i'm paying for what i wont use, and so i'd value more if it has less of that and maybe better cooling quality and quietness. If there's one without those things and better at what i need, then i'll probably like it more. Let's wait if we have more responses. Thanks for helping !

not sure if they're within your price range, but if you're talking in Aussie dollars, it probably isn't.

The Lian Li cases are quite nice. I have a personal fancy for the PC7-FW I think it was. I never got around to getting one. I got an Antec 902 instead, haha.

Good looking, lots of space, lots of options with fans, and nice looking, for a excellent price.

There is also a windowed version if interested.
