Will my stuff fit in this case?

post #1 of 11

Im on a very tight budget so i thought this case looked alright, and is #1 on neweggs' mATX cases so i figured id get it, but i want to know if it will fit a CM 212+, GTX470, 2x HDD's and an ODD.
That seems like it would be cutting it close but if the dimensions are correct and i slide the rear of the GTX470 into the empty drive bay it should work.

EDIT- The reason im going with mATX is because i can sometimes get better cases that are cheaper than their ATX brethren, plus i like my computer looking "stock", im all set with "Gamers like gaudy" i want somthing that isnt flashy at all but on the inside the things a brute.

according to the details on newegg it only comes with 1 fan. should be able to fit everything. Thats actually a decently wide case, so no problem with the 212+ but you may have to take the side duct out

I bought a CM Centurion 5 from CM's refurb store. It was about $33 shipped to Iowa, which I didn't think was too bad. Lots of modding possibilities, and it's obviously roomier than a microATX case.

Edit: ...it's not gaudy at all. And the blue-trimmed version I have is very nice looking.

Spend a few extra bucks and get this:
CM Elite 341

You won't regret it. And it fits the Hyper212+ just fine but you won't be able to use a side panel fan.

Only comes with 1 120mm fan though. But trust me, best case I ever owned.

The Case the OP linked comes out to $40, yours comes to $55 Shipped.

The 430 is a much better case for $49.99 Shipped
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119227


For the $10 extra (over the cheapo Rosewill, you get better ventilation (bottom mount PSU top exhaust), Tons of room (dual ATi 5970's can fit) and black interior!


$40 Shipped


or

$50 Shipped


You decide...

Yup. It does come out to more shipped. It's also much more worth the money than that other case he linked.

Also the case you linked is ATX, not mATX

His reason for getting a mATX is :

He never said that ATX was out of the question and his statement implies exactly that.

Why get a very cheap mATX case for $40 shipped when you can get an ATX case with tons of extra features for only $10 more?

We're talking about very cheap/low quality/limited features for $40 vs the complete opposite for $50.

I'm just trying to pump some logic into this thread.

The 341 isn't necessarily "low quality" in comparison to other mATX cases for the same price point. It houses long video cards, tall coolers, regular ATX power supplies and upwards to 4 hard drives. It has unrivaled airflow for the price point in the mATX department with up to 4 80/92/120mm fans and nothing to block the airflow.

For $50 I think the Elite 341 is pretty good. Also it doesn't take up a huge amount of space. Oh, and airflow is good and all in regular mid-tower cases, but if the fans are too far away then what's the point. I prefer the fans airflow being able to reach my parts

Oh, and for logic. Mine was perfectly fine. Why would he go for mATX when there's PLENTY of ATX Mid-towers in that price range that are just as good? He was asking advice on a mATX case, and I replied with a mATX case better than what he had.

Here's some more logic for ya:
For $10 you can get the HAF 912 over the Elite 340:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...&Tpk=HAf%20912

For $50 you can get a case with cable management and good airflow:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811146061

or for $55 you can get an Antec 300 Illusion:

Now you are just getting carried away. When I was saying low quality, cheap, - I was talking about the Rosewill.

The 341 is not $50, It's $55 Shipped.

I was trying to explain that for $5 less than the Elite 341, the 430 is a better bargain, being only $10 more than Rosewill which is not a backbreaking increase in money.
