How many of you have multiple rigs using the same model case?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I don't but wondering if people like a case so much that they use the same case model for their multiple rigs.

Thanks

Well, I have 3 Antec 300's, but it is not my favorite case, just one I happen to have 3 of (got one for $50 shipped (1st one) got one for $10 off CL and one for free from here).
2 are in use (kids computer and server, 3rd is a project case I just have not started (my daughter wants a pink/red/purple case, so the spare 300 will be getting a paint job and led fans one day)).

I have 3 systems in old CM Elite 330's. I first picked them up to house Folding Rigs when I was running a bunch of them a few years ago (never paid more than $25 for any of them). While I find them somewhat constraining in a lot of ways, for the money to do a good enough job and have excellent airflow. If they were about an inch wider, 2 inches longer, and had a bottom mounted psu they would be just about the best economy case around.

Prior to that, I used to use a lot of Enlight 7237's.

They served you well for the price paid but nowwwwww..........

I guess then it's time for you to change out those cases.

Now get to it, hurry, now, pronto and speedy gonzales like and all that.

Sooooooo, three brave souls so far have admitted it.

When are the rest of you reading this thread going to admit it?

Don't be afraid, I won't bite.

The sig rig I have uses a Coolermaster Praetorian Mid tower (Aluminum) which is kinda small. I bought another tower that I plan to keep forever, which is a full tower Azza Hurrican 2000. That tower will be home to my future Bulldozer CPU. I should have bought a full tower to begin with but didn't think i needed it.

Somehow I've ended up using 3 of those old antec style SOHO over the years.
After using one from 2001 to 2004 I gave it away, only to buy a model of the exact same style in 2006 which was used until 2009 when someone gave me one for free that I transplanted my rig into for 2009/half of 2010.

If I have to look at another one of them I'll probably strangle someone, although there's an empty one downstairs and my fileserver resides in one of them...

I heard that those were great cases in their time.
