I am new to building computers, but I plan on doing one in the near future. I was wondering what the best case would be as far as airflow. Pros and cons of each would be appreciated. Also, a full tower case would be optimal, but I will work with a mod tower case if the pros are good. Aesthetics are somewhat important to me as well. I appreciate any knowledgeable advice that is given.
I agree with mpilchfamily. I bought an Antec 900 not too long ago. The thing has GREAT airflow, an easy to work with layout, and is actually really quiet. Get an extra 120mm fan to put in the side window, and your good to go.
Be aware that its a pain in the butt to install hard drives in the drive bays.
Regardless, I highly suggest the Antec 900.
Besides, its on sale at CompUSA for $90. Here.
