Time for a new case, Ive got 2 Ideas...

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
Im in the market for a new case.
My budget is $100 with shipping...so...its the same its always been...
I need the following:
Good Quality
Good Airflow
Plenty of space
Decent Cable Management
Not Ostentatious or "Loud"

Anyway, Ive narrowed it down to the Lian Li K60B and the Cooler Master 690 II Advanced. They are my preferred choices, But if someone has a better idea im open to them.

Here is the Lian Li for reference:

Here is the CM 690 for reference:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119216

I do have one question that could decide it seeing as they are so similar.
Does the Lian Li have mesh over the fan ports? If so which has better mesh, the CM or the Lian Li?
My roomate has 3 cats, and even when I keep them out of my room the dust/hair is crazy bad.

I've got the CM 690II and I love it - definitely the best case I've ever owned. Can't speak for the Lian Li, but the CM is a great case and should definitely do everything you need it to do.

Ok. Sounds good.
Im still really interested in getting more information on the Lian Li though.
Im leaning toward the CM but Ive always wanted a Lian Li.

I have a CM 690 II advanced and I can say the build quality is exactly the same as the Lancool. Remember PC-k60 and k62 are Lancool, which is a subsidiary of Lian-li. They are made with the same abs plastic as the CM 690 II.

The Lancool has a few benefits:
- Slightly better tool free hardware
- Tool free fan mountings

The CM 690 II has much better features
- Longer GPU support
- 2 x 240mm rad support
- Support for 11 x fans inside the chassis

Lancool are equal to CM on this one. It depends on which look you like better and the features that you will use, not really the branding.

I've got the 690 II and I really like it; it's a very nice case.

Personally out of those two I would still pick the 690 II, it depends which looks better to you and which features you prefer though, like Icejon said.

Yeah. The only thing I dont like about the 690 is the LED Fan. But ive got a non LED 140mm fan that I can slap in the front. So its a non-issue.
