Thinking the SG02 has served me well for the year, it's a dusty heap (lots of negative pressure and I can't seem to fix that without just tapping up the vents all over it.)

Considering this:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=11-553-011&Tpk=N82E16811553011

Looks like a nice cheap but well done case- lots of good reviews.

Only problem is- no window.

I have been looking for HOURS i can't seem to find a decent mAtx "window on the left" case

These are as close as I've come,


The NoFan CS60

And this MSI TC-128 which seems to be a bit undernoticed... Also its an ATX case- but the dimensions make it seem like a mAtx case :/ any clue?

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3580085&csid=_61

I did spot this somewhere on the forums- it is close HOWEVER this is I believe one of the Appevia (sp? lol) cases just siting upside down? Or perhaps some other intense mod.



If i did get the Cougar case I suppose I could mod some acrylic window into it- perhaps make it look like the above.

Any other recommendations before I start spending money on things and then cutting them up

First picture is an In-Win case that has been rebranded, and the third is the TJ08-E. You should go check out the owners club; you can ask them about side panel modding.

Thanks for this information, I actually spent a LOT of time in that owners thread for the TJ08 - it's an impressive and nice case but im thinking the $100 price point is killing it for me... especially considering I'll have to be cutting it.

I've heard before that the NoFan case is indeed a rebraned "fanless" InWin case- however I couldn't pin down WHICH in win case it really was- to just go buy it from InWin - perhaps that doesn't matter though.

EDIT I must be drunk- for some reason I thought I saw that "no fan" case for 30 bucks somewhere... that price (hundred ish) is ridiculous, especially if it is just a jacked up in win.

It's the InWin Dragon Rider. About $68 after promo code, ends on 3/3.

Quite a good case actually; the only thing that kills me about the case is the yellow fans, PCI-E brackets, and HDD screw thingymabobs, but those are easily paintable through modding.

If you think the TJ08-E is out of your price range, you can get the slimmed-down version, the PS07.

Identical except for the fact that the front is plastic vs. aluminum front, front 2x120mm fans vs. 1x180mm (less cooling but more silence), and.. that's really it. Layout of the motherboard, PSU, etc. is the same.

Consider the NZXT Vulcan as well. There's an owner club for that, too.

Just can't decide

I like the dragon slayer the best but worried it may be kinda big on my desk.

Also- none of these really offer the window im looking for, that said- perhaps a mod would be in order :/

Doesn't look like my titan will be here till next week so i guess i have time to think about it, thanks for the replys! :>
