Good airflow cases (excluding HAF)

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Title says it all, what are some cases with good airflow? I don't want a HAF, I think they look like crap, so don't suggest them, and yes I know they are the "best."

Thanks in advance!

EDIT: The case has to be a full tower or bigger than 8.5x20x21(DxHxL). It must be able to fit massive air cooling solutions, such as the Thermalright IFX-14.

Silverstone FT02 hands down
I recommend this case if you dont want any of the HAF series

Had *well still ahve the case, waiting to get the rep to sell it here* it before, very very good classy, solid case ^_^

Sucking cold fresh air from the bottom, expelling the warm air up, 3 fans cooling 3 major areas of the case HDD || GPU || CPU/RAM

Silverstone RV02-B is an awesome air cooler. It is x3 180mm fans on the bottom and the mobo is turned 90 degrees so everything is mounted vertically instead horizontally. THis is good for heat since it rises.

Here is one with everything in it:



Edit: This is very similar to the FT02, just costs about $100 less if you an find a deal.

Should have specified, but this needs to be full tower, I've got no room in my mid tower as it is.

Yeah, I've looked into the CM 690, still unsure about it, I think for the most part I'm over CM after owning their cases for the past 5 or so years. I thought the 600T had horrid airflow problems.

If I downgraded a tad to the RV02, would I see any difference in airflow versus the FT02?

EDIT: Editing my first post for science.

Probably not, it is pretty much the same interior. Only major difference is the exterior and price.

Doubt that, RV02 and FT02 pretty much has the same innards, air flow concept and all that. If there's going to be a difference, it's going to be aesthetic. I suggested the FT02 because it has a cleaner more sleek looks than the raven series *RV02*
