Case noob! - Page 2

post #11 of 19
I would say the NZXT Phantom is the best bang for your buck. The tower is big, and has tons of cooling power. You can normally find them on sale from time to time on newegg.
like right now the White version has free shipping.

I can't stand the HAF series, no dust filters and terrible looks makes me wonder why so many people have it. Get a Phantom for $99 when the deal comes up again on the egg, superb cooling, cable management and nice looks.

So do you have to take off the top to plug everything in?

+1 for the Haf-X if you want to go big and look big. The phantom is a great choice if you want to have a more "stealthier" look, whereas the Haf-X says..hey, look at me..I'm big and have lots of fans. To each their own.
