Hi, at the moment I have a Midi case (Zalman Z9 Plus) & I want to upgrade to a Full sized and better case which is futureproof and looks amazing!

Here is my Rig:

ANTEC H2O-620 Liquid Cooling
Gigabyte GTX 770 3x OC 2GB DDR5
Kingston HyperX Blu 12GB
Gigabyte G1.Guerrilla Intel® X58+
Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 7200RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64MB
Seagate Barracuda 2TB 7200RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64MB
Be Quiet! CM BQT L8-730W PSU
Zalman Z9 Case (My current case)

Any case experts can help me out would be much appreciated? :??:

Honestly (and this may not be everyone's cup of tea!), I really, really, really like the Corsair Carbide Air 540. It's essentially a cube case, the point being that you have loads and loads of room to install (and way more importantly, show off) your components, and hide away all the nasty stuff in the big panel hidden away.



To be honest, I don't like a lot of full tower cases, simply because they all have that cheapy, "lol i'm so gamur" look to them, with massive LEDs, harsh angles everywhere and weird highlights. Probably why I love the Corsair full sized cases so much, they just look so well made, like there's been more than 5 minutes of thought put into them. I dunno, personal preference I guess.

But hey, there's always the Corsair Obsidian 750D:



Or the Phanteks Enthoo Primo Rev 2 (phew):

Yeah, the Air 540 has massssiiiiveeeeee amounts of room behind the motherboard panel. Hell, that's where the PSU and hard drives go!



There's one full sized tower that's peaked my interest, but I can't for the life of me remember the name of it. If I ever recall it, or I happen to come across it again, I'll shoot it in here, because that thing's an absolute beauty (and the price agrees with me!).

I think I'm going to go with the Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 It's just pure eye candy and looking amazingly built!

Thanks for your help
