Case Suggestions.

Need to get a decent but cheap case i.e. under £100 and need suggestions on what to go for.

I'm not fussy on size as long as it can fit my components then its not a problem. I need something with a motherboard tray that is removable as well as tooless installation on hdd, cd/dvd and expansion slots and decent cable management would be good good too.

Can i get a case with all the features i suggested for under £100??

Any other suggestions??
The Anttec 900 II is nice and cheap at overclockers at the moment.
And it's a brillient all round case.
Cooling, space, ventilation, easy fitting, everything.

Antec 900
90 quid.

Never did like the 900 that much even though it is probably a great case.

The CM690 looks good and i'm thinking about the antec P182 SE as well

I don't know of any cases with removable motherboard trays, but as first few suggest cases without removable motherboard trays I figure I might as well too. The HAF932 doesen't have a removable motherboard tray, but fits most of the other categorys, and is ~150$ (I think).

I also say CM690!
I second the CM 690. Great case, and plenty of room.

So far the coolermaster 690 is the case i'll probably go for.

Whats the Cable management like in the 690?? I really would love to have all PSU cables out of sight and going behind the motherboard tray if i could.
The 690 has a cable management hole right next to the psu to allow you to route all the cables behind the (non-removeable) mobo tray. Only difficulty I've had is the bundled real power pro 550W PSU doesn't have a long enough ATX connector to reach if I route it behidn the mobo tray - an HX620 does reach though and of course you can make another hole in the tray or get an extender. Overal I'd rank the cable management as excelent, with just a point taken off for not thinking though the cable length if you go for the bundled psu.

looks like the 690, only if you like how it looks.
The cable management is top notch, check out the "Rate My Cables" thread, a lot of people there have CM690s that have hidden their cables damn well. Without drilling any holes at that. (Including myself)

Cheers for the suggestions and comments and i will give +rep.

I will then be going for the coolermaster 690 since it looks good, has plenty of space and toolless installation .
CM 590 is also a good case.
I'd rather go with the 690 and not the 590. Although they are simmilar i like the looks of the 690 better.
