which case should I get?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I'm planning to buy a new case very soon as I need a full tower to fit everything I have.very cramped in my case and I can't do any cable management because of my 1200w power supply which is a tiny bit longer than my old one so I can't use the cable management precut holes in my CM 590.
I could just use a dremel and cut some more but i am not bothered to take everything out and cut it.

Because I have limited space, i had to cut the top of the case to house the 220 rad outside and a 120rad on the back. heres some pictures to show you what i done.

I love this case and think it is one of the best bang for buck cases out there but I need to get a full tower as I want to upgrade more in the future and want to fit everything internally because it looks neater.

There only a couple of cases that actually catch my attention but they are so overpriced I can't afford it.I recently lost my job so that doesn't help.

The cases I have in mind are the Silverstone TJ07 of course. the ONLY problem I have with this case is that the interrior is not black.I don't care about hot swap or tooless design because I screw everything in anyway.that is the only bad thing about the TJ07 in my opinion.other poeple might like it but I like it black.I don't want to paint it myself because knowing me I will ruinnnnnnn it tremendously and I don't want to ruin a £240 case.thats the other bad thing, the PRICE!

The second one is the corsair 800d.lovely case, all black and great.but my problem with this is the window.I hate that it shows the psu section.if it stopped at the first chamber then it would be perfect.I know I could get a 700d but I want the window to show off my rampage and wc.and I'm scared of cutting the panel.I did it with my cm 590 but that was a botch job.i cut it all with a dremel, no jigsaw and i just put some trim on the edges but if you look VERY closely then you can see the crappy job i done.looks ok for a first try at modding.the 800d is very pricey aswel.

the last one i like is the silverstone raven RV01.i like the case, it looks cool and it has everything I could want, BUT it won't fit a rad inside, at least I think it doesn't anyway.i LOVE the sliding front panel.the 90 degree thing doesn't really interest me that much but it does create problems with my wc setup because you'll see two tubes going across the pc because my reservoir and pump are in the drive bays which will look ugly. 2 in 1 xspc 750 dual bay pump and res.I also plan to upgrade my wc loop to crossfire two 6850's and put them under water with full blocks so i would need more space to fit more rads.but this is in the VERY FAR future as I'm broke.

sorry for rambling on and i hope to hear your advice! i ALWAYS do long posts for some reason. I would like some advice as to which one i should get, or you could recommend some cases also, I don't have a massive budget so please keep that in mind.i know the tj07 and 800d are expensive and I could save up for them (take me longggg time) but I'm willing to wait and save up for a good case,no rush.

Thank you for reading and hope to hear from you soon!
