HELP me CHOOSE a CASE PLEASE Tags: Power Supplies Cases Aerocool Raidmax Components Product Last response: March 29, 2007 9:49 AM in Components Share Sticky March 28, 2007 7:53:08 AM HI, Im looking at the following cases: Aerocool Zero Degree Raidmax Smilidon I can get raidmax, aerocool, and antec cases only, so if there are any other suggestions let me know. I am leaning towards the zero degree..... Please help Thanks More about : choose case AeroB1033 March 28, 2007 9:47:13 AM I have a similar AeroCool case (the ExtremEngine 3T) and it's quite nice. The machining isn't perfect or anything, but it has a really great airflow design and the finish is nice. I would suggest if you get that case to do what I did and mod it with a top exhaust. Other options would include the Antec Nine Hundred and P182 (it's not out yet but I think it's about to be). Sticky March 28, 2007 10:55:08 AM Thanks, I have also seens the gigabyte aurora, any ideas on this?

Get the answer AeroB1033 March 28, 2007 11:07:54 AM The airflow on that one doesn't look nearly as good to me... just doesn't seem to be in the same high-performance class as the other cases I mentioned. EDIT: I know you listed the three brands you like, but this case looks really awesome so I thought I'd throw it out there: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Almost wish I had purchased that one myself. Sticky March 28, 2007 11:12:15 AM I feel the 3t is a bit too plasticy..... AeroB1033 March 28, 2007 11:16:01 AM Quote:I feel the 3t is a bit too plasticy..... The front doors are brushed aluminum so that helps the look a lot. The rest is steel with a nice flecked black paint on it. A couple parts are plastic though, so I know what you mean. Sticky March 28, 2007 11:44:00 AM The NZXT looks cool i guess but the chassis is aluminium and the front panel is plastic. Dont know how strong it would be. I can get that one, not sure though. I can get the zerodegree and aurora cheaper. The aurora is fully aluminium incliding front panel and door. Not sure about the zerodegree I know the door is aluminium. Id the raidmax smiliodon that bad? seems to have doors that open nicely and a removal md tray. But the air flow doesnt seem that good..... still dont know what to buy..... AeroB1033 March 28, 2007 11:58:32 AM Personally I think every Raidmax case I've seen looks cheesy, but that's just my opinion. Sticky March 28, 2007 12:09:30 PM Yep a bit cheesy. I had a look at the antec 900, doesnt seem much different to the zerodegree which is cheaper..... avarice March 28, 2007 1:21:18 PM I had no idea that the P182 existed - the P180 is very nice, and the P182 is a nice update. Gun metal black? Crome? Sweet. I really like my P180, but the P182 looks damned sexy. - Cheers. knowsitall March 28, 2007 2:22:36 PM WRONG WRONG WRONG!!! ANTEC 900 ALL THE WAY, SICKEST CASE IN THE WORLD, AND ITS PRETTY CHEAP! Sticky March 29, 2007 4:56:05 AM If i had to rank the cases in order of price from lowest to highest of what i can get it would be: Raidmax Smilidon Aerocool 3T Aerocool Zerodegree Gigabyte aurora Antec 900 Antec P190 Anyway hows the antec p160?
