Antec DF 85 VS HAF X Nvidia EDT VS Bitfenix Colossus Venom EDT.

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I'm investing my hard earned money into a new build and to be honest i'm having a really hard time choosing a case.

I should note that I will be making a green look on the cases so will exchange fans with green led fans.

Colossus Venom.

This would by far be the easiest solution since it allready has a green look but no windowed side, allthough this can be bought its a nice case all in all.

HAF X nvidia EDT.

This is a brilliant case i'm loving it allthough the front fan is really not that great in terms of color, I've been thinking about putting in a Bitfenix 230 mm green led fan instead they seem to have the same size but this is not something im sure of, i also found some great 200 mm green led fans from xigmatek to put in the top and on the side panel.

Antec DF 85

I like the aggresive look of the case and all the features allthough after what i've read cable management sucks because there is not alot of room between the back and the side panel the downside also is there will be alot of fans to replace in this one.

Hope you guys can help me

Antec are sometimes reported as having a low build quality, but the HAF has a huge fanbase

Maybe include some links to the product pages? In the other thread you made, you said no one was answering you, so try to make it as easy and quick to help you out as possible, and I'm sure people will put in their 2 cents

There is a windowed version, which should be the answer to all your problems, of the Bitfenix Colossus Venom if I'm not mistaken; well here in my country is available this:

Try look around if you can find it.

What is your budget btw?

Edit: Personally I really really don't like the look of those case's I prefer the looks of Lian Li, Silverstone's etc

But seriously, this forum will teach you, if you can't find what you want, MOD IT!

Money saved is money earned.. EXACTLY so why not get the 2500k Seriously I know I'm going on but I think you will not see a difference between the 2500k and 2600k

Keep an eye on your shipping fee's

The shipping fee's aren't that bad actually i can do about all of the items including a case for about 30 Euro's the problem with ordering in Denmark is i would have to order from at least 3 stores to get the items as cheap as possible and the fee for sending the case alone in Denmark is approximately 13 Euro's so all in all i'd end up paying the same amount if not more in getting all my stuff from Denmark we are a expensive country when it comes to sending stuff from stores i think for each of the store i would order from it would cost me about 10 Euro's in delivery fee's per store

Have you had a chance to look at the Silverstone Raven RV02-E?

Check this out:

1) http://www.techspot.com/review/351-s...02e/page5.html

2) http://benchmarkreviews.com/index.ph...1&limitstart=4

3) http://www.overclockersonline.net/re...n-rv02-e-case/

It's priced the same as the HAF-X but performs and looks better!

As much as I could recommend quite a few better case's IMO, they need to be green themed mate. That's not green

Edit: I've never notived before, but I liked the rotated internal mounting, that looks interesting and different. But then I realised my cable will be coming from the top of the case? Is that right?
