The BEST full tower case? Price is no object? Well, a Soldam case of course! They make Lian-Li's look like something you would get for $5 at the local salvation army. There already pretty expensive, sometimes over $450 for there higher end models, and there unavailable (atleast legally) everywhere expect Taiwan and Japan.

If you dont want to fly half way around the world for a case then i would get a Stacker 830, Thermaltake Armor, or pretty much anything anything Lian-Li.

The Armor is one of the best and popular as well, for it's price range. But there are many more you can find assuming you have deep pockets.

Lian-Li isn't about that opulence that other gaming and mainstream cases are going for. They're more about simplicity. It's a different crowd they're after. That's why I have a PC-201B. 12 hdd bays... and still have great airflow.

I'd try out the SST-TJ07-BW. It simple yet classy - taller than the TJ07 as well. Also, instead of 4 5.25" bay drives, it has 7. The case window is big and beautiful, offering a fantastic view of the PC's innards. Soldam might be good for HTPC's, but Silverstone is the way to go for the whole "wow!" factor.

It speaks for itself.

apt403 Nice case! Whats the make/model for that case? Do you have a website I can check out?
January 14, 2007 3:21:01 AM

that is a sweet looking case. without a window though that interior goes to waste. also, it looks like a BTX case is it not?

you know...iam starting to like nzxt alot.

there cases are freaking awesome looking...put are they good quality?

that case kinda reminds me of a dell xps

NZXT Zero is a nice case, would be even nicer if it had a removable mobo tray but oh well. Moves lots of air just dont put any thunderblade fans in it like i did, unless you dont mind turning your room into a wind tunnel. Oh and cable management inside the Zero kinda blows. But it was the nicest case with the most airlow within my budget so I'm happy

I think most of the cases on the market blows. Either too many openings (for ALOT of noise) to not enough (only good for a vaccum cleaner). Seems most need to be modified to be half ass good.

The thermal take Armor seems to be alright:

But it would be wise using quiet fans in it so you don't have to yell over it.

Its a Soldman case, i think its an Alcadia Evolution. Soldams site is down right now, and theres not much info about then in english since there only avalible in Japan and Taiwan. Ive they might have gone bankrupt, but it might have been the actual manufacturer of the cases. I'd like some more info about them as well, i would probably fly to japan to get a Soldam case.

This thread has alot more pics if your interested.

It's nice, very nice, but still, I like my 12 hdd bays (although I may never fill them all)
January 14, 2007 8:01:19 PM

is my current case bigger than the armor?!?!?!?!?

its a mge viper..not the new one..the older one..

u was comparing the dimensions and it seems bigger!!!
that doesnt seem right....

Those are some ugly a$$ cases if you ask me...The Armor looks sweet, but damn, I'll stick to my $15 Super LANboy. :lol:  8)

thanks for getting my back here quazzy!!..I HATE LIAN LI
January 17, 2007 4:36:28 AM

I got to say I dislike the Thermaltake and all the other cheezy looking cases with windows and lights and all that "bling". I would take a clean and classy Lian Li or Silverstone anyday.

i absolutely love my nzxt zero. even though it doesnt have a motherboard tray, it's still easy to work with. and as long as you have a modular power supply, the cable management is not a problem. i do have to say that i recommend this case up and down.

Word, remember kids KISS! Keep It Simple Stupid. Sorry, I just had to say that. Seriously, a simple, sleek case is so much more deceiving than a gaudy gamers case.

That's great for you but please don't bash what other guys are using... I don't make fun of your car or your mom so leave my case alone.

i agree. if you dont like someone's case, so be it. that person likes it, and thats what counts. i know a couple of people that have setups that i dont personally like. then again, its not my setup so i keep my mouth shut. if it's not to your taste, then it's not for you, and leave it be.
