Best Case for Modding?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
What would be some good PC cases to use for modding? I know the Corsair 800D is a good one, but sort of expensive. Give me some ideas.

I think a lot of cases are good for modding. I prefer aluminum cases mostly, it's an easy metal to cut on. I've seen every type of case out there modded in some way or another, even cheap Raidmax cases.

I just dumped my antec 900v2 for the CM690IIAD. The antec was not very mod friendly IMO, pretty limited on what could be done with it. Now the CM690IIAD is a modders buddy so far, I have planned a host of mods for mine, I have been ordering stuff like a mad hatter
