New case for my newly built pc> Ty for all help

Hello
I bought a new pc
Components are
Cpu - Amd 8320
gpu - Powercolor 7870 myst 2gb
Mobo - gigabyte 990fxa u3
ddram- Corsair vengeance 8gb
psu - Corsair 600w 80+ bronze
HDD- Seagate 500gb

So i was wondering what case should i use because the currant one i use is a Coolermaster but at least 8+ years old :0 so my pc is quite cramped. Usually on games like crysis3 is stays at about 65 c but i replaced paste on cpu and gpu with noctua but it still is quite hot i reckon. Therefore i think i should invest a new case since everything else is new
So what cases would be big and best for cooling but not too expesnive as well :)
Ty for all suggestions

  3. Best answer
    1.






    Case: Zalman Z11 Plus ATX Mid Tower Case (£49.97 @ Dabs)


    or


    2.







    Case: Thermaltake Commander MS/I Snow Edition (White/Black) ATX Mid Tower Case (£43.98 @ Novatech)


    or


    3.







    Case: Corsair 200R ATX Mid Tower Case (£47.98 @ Amazon UK)
  4. Some good cases :

    1. NZXT Source 210 Elite : http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/nzxt-case-s210e001
    2. Zalman Z9 Plus : http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/zalman-case-z9plus
    3. Bitfenix Merc Aplha : http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/bitfenix-case-mercalpha
    4. Zalman Z11 : http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/zalman-case-z11

    But the best ones are these :
    1. Corsair 300R : http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-case-300r
    2. Cooler Master HAF 912 Plus : http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/cooler-master-case-rc912pkkn1
    3. Zalman Z11 Plus : http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/zalman-case-z11plus
    4. Bitfenix Outlaw : http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/bitfenix-case-outlaw (Anandtech's Editor's Choice)
    5. Bitfenix Shinobi Window : http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/bitfenix-case-shinobiwindow


    For just a little over the budget, these are worth considering :
    1. NZXT Tempest 210 : http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/nzxt-case-catp21001
    2. Corsair 300R Window : http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-case-300rwindowed
    3. Fractal Design Define R4 (White) : http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/fractal-design-case-fdcadefr4wh

    So, at the end of the day, do your own research and get the one that suits your needs the most. My recommendation would be Corsair 300R or the Windowed version of it if you can afford.

    Also the Shinobi and Outlaw are good options. Shinobi is a really nice case. The HAF 912 is also awesome looking as well as it has quite good performance.

    The Bitfenix Merc Aplha is also a great case with good performance for the price, but it is not close to the 300R.

    So, if you ask me to pick one of them. I would go for the Corsair 300R, but would also consider the Shinobi too.

    I hope this helps.
  5. dont buy 912 it lacks usb 3.0

    USB3.0 front panel in 3.5 inch cage is just 5 pounds ...
  7. ohkay mate was just informing him

    otherwise the case is good

    made a few builts with it
  8. Also, you can just use the USB 3.0 from Motherboard I/O ports hence it should not be a problem.
  9. dont u all think z11 plus is a great case for the built
    lt of feature and priced rightly too
  10. I have gave him some good options. Now let him select one of them. I have also included the Z11 Plus in that list.
  11. was just asking ur opinions mate
  12. WOW, ty seriously for all the suggestions, will have to slowly look :)
    Ty vm for all posters
  13. sure make a decision
    just take a look at one thing that z11 plus was included by everyone so have a close look on it
  14. Whats the difference on 300r windowed and not windowed..
    Im thinking maybe zalman z11 plus :) seems good and really good price in dabs for £50 or is the 300r worth it for £64 without window or £70 with windows
  15. i would say z11 has more features and space than 300r so go for it great case made many builts with it for my clients who were very happy with it
    complete value for money
  16. and having a window case and a non window would be like this


    windowed case

    http://www.shop.bt.com/images/product/uni2/DigitalContent/88/8821_82A55969-209C-4EF5-B80E-2689BB62D1B2_large.jpg


    non windowed

  17. also i want to change my currant case at the moment because with nocuta tim on gpu , it goes to 70 c on games like crysis 3 but is really loud. So would the z11 really be good for keeping my gpu cool because that is the culprit for a lot of noise Ty
  18. yeah it would be a good choice due to good cooling options and great space
  19. Sorry , so this is the best for its price and is the cable management good enough for my parts listed right at the top

  20. Sorry , so this is the best for its price and is the cable management good enough for my parts listed right at the top
    Ty
  21. Yes it is indeed
  22. Great choice mate
  23. My pick would still be the Corsair 300R but yeah it is your opinion, it might vary from mine.
  24. ALso with my 990fxa how do i connect all these fans with an additional 120mm that use to be connected to the back of my old case even though i dont have that many slots on the motherboard
    This comes with 5 fans :0 so i got no idea how as this would be 6 fans
  25. Sn1992-1361850 said:


    do you know what type of connectors the z11 fans needs meaning do they need 3 pin or 4 pin . etc so i can tell how many to buy for my 990fxa u3 motherboard
  26. They will all be 3 pin for sure
  27. Sn1992-1361850 said:
    They will all be 3 pin for sure


    iv got a corsai 600w bronze so shoul i buy this
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Startech-inch-Power-Splitter-Cable/dp/B002DY7M1G/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1376254081&sr=8-3&keywords=fan+splitter
    or this
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Splitter-Cable-Plug-Twin-Sockets/dp/B009XA2TZM/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1376254195&sr=8-8&keywords=fan+splitter
    or are they too short or anything else
    sorry just want to get parts before motherboard comes
    Ty
  28. Buy the startech one as the other are 4 pin
  29. i checked my power supply and motherboard, there is 1, 3 pin pwr fan left on motherboard and my power suppl corsair 600w has 1 , 6 hole plug left so still left confused
    Ty in advance
  30. Use multiple 3 pin connectors and u ll be good to go

    so if i buy a startech

    then i put 2 of the fans into the leftover pwr fan. what connector should i buy so i can plug the fans into my 6pin power plug?
    can you give a link of a reccomended connector for uk buyers
    tyvm
    also some people complain about the z11plus usb 3.0 headers or something and needing to buy something else
    what is that>??
    ty

    i bought 2, 2*3pin star tech so would they fit in together in my 6pin psu
    i also bought a 2*3 pin motherboard connector so that is enough for my 6 fans and i bought a z3 zalman 120mm so all good to go?
    would a fan controller be worth it or not and a psi cooler although the top 2 pci are used for my gpu so a pci cooler, would it be useful to keep gpu cool as it makes a lot oif noise
    ty
  33. yeah all good to go all things are compatible

    i wont use a fan controller as a simple software can do the work

    a pci cooler would be blocking air and most of them blow the air out it would be adviceable to go for an extra fan
