please recommend me a case (good air+quiet) - Page 2

post #11 of 25
I suggest the CoolerMaster CM690 Advance, good wire management, good airflow. And a nice SATA drive bay on the top, for your random harddrives! http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-216-_-Product

Hi, thanks for all these case recommendations. I liked a lot some of them. They all have very good reviews and this is the list of the ones i liked more. Please tell me which of them has better (or simply very good) air cooling, so i can make a choice.

1. Lian li pc-7fn
2. Lian li pc-60fn & cooler master cm690 II Advanced
3. Lian li pc-9fb, lian li pc-8fib , corsair graphite 600t cc600t
4. Antec three hundred, thermaltake v9 blackx edition, antec nine hundred black steel.

And these i like too, but are too expensive. i'd need a really strong recommendation to chose one of these: silverstone fortress ft02, lian li pc-25sb.

What i like of these cases is they don't have so many bays which i wont use. they keep it simple. some, like the graphite, have a lot, like 8 which is nonesense to me cause i won't use more than 2. However, i care more about quietness and best air flow and cooling. please judge based on that. Thanks again

i was in a similar situation last month when i had to choose between a fractal design r3, corsair 600t, but i ended up getting a lian li pc-9f and i absolutely love it, despite its drawbacks.

-the stock fans are really quiet, but don't have that great of an airflow
-cable management is really tight as it is only 8.27" wide
-no windows or lights or painted interior

i did manage to fit in a silver arrow and removed the hard drive cage to improve airflow.

I would go with the Lian Li PC8 if you can get it. Great cooling and good cable management in a clean case. Nothing makes a statement like a full aluminum Lian Li.

Hi again, faih thanks for the recommended cases. i read good reviews about them, but they look too heavy stuff to me, so many trays and things. i like more the ones like fractal, lian, or others that have just couple or three front bays, and just some internal hdd trays. I like pretty much the pc-9f. it has usb 3.0 (modern case), not many front bays and looks simple. Also the pc-8fi looks nice to me, it's almost like the 9f but with two blue leds in the front fans. I dont like too many lights, but these two are ok. What i 'm more concerned is about airflow. Kdo99 you say it doesn't have a great airflow, but will it be enough to keep my system cool with one gtx 570 + 2500k at stock settings (maybe a little oc'ed in the future), without heat problems? like under 55 degrees or 60? i would hate to pay that much for a case that gets hot.

EDIT: didn't read your message eric. I initially liked that one too, but these new ones feature 2x usb 3.0 stock. What you think of these ? (pc-8fi, pc-9f)

The PC-8 and PC-9 are almost identical. The main difference is the front cover. Both offer excellent cooling, and an option to add a top 140mm fan too. Both have USB3.0. You can go to the Lian Li site to see the detail specs.
