I want a BIG case

post #1 of 49
Thread Starter 
Hi

I've been doing some searching around the internet and I seem to be having a problem with choosing a case for my new PC. I find that generally they are all a nice enough height and a nice enough length but their width is too small to fit fans and a large graphics card. I would also like to be able to fit several fans in as my new build this summer will be housing several powerful components (undecided on what to go with yet, but it will be a beast!)

Does anyone know any good wide, long and tall cases?

I used to own the Antec three hundred and found that it was perfect for length and height.

Cheers, Dan

if you found the Antec 300 perfect in length and height, then you should just look for more Mid-size ATX Cases.
Some go larger than others, the CM 690 II for example is on the bigger size of an Mid-size ATX case

I'm currently using an XClio Wintunnel. It's full size, very tall and has tons of room to play and it only ran about 80 bucks. It's no frills black.
The edges can be kinda sharp, but really it's cheap and huge.

Corsair 700D, 800D or the HAF-X are all good choices for large cases. However if you are doing air cooling the HAF-X and the others in the series are the better choice.

are you thinking of watercooling or aircooling? Because there are big cases that are good for watercooling because they can fit all watercooling components but not so great for aircooling because of a lesss-than-optimal airflow. The same applies vice-versa. (e.g. 800D)

The 800D is enormous and weighs the same as a 1970 VW beetle
