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

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).

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:

Almost wish I had purchased that one myself.

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.

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.....

Personally I think every Raidmax case I've seen looks cheesy, but that's just my opinion.

Yep a bit cheesy.

I had a look at the antec 900, doesnt seem much different to the zerodegree which is cheaper.....

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.

WRONG WRONG WRONG!!! ANTEC 900 ALL THE WAY, SICKEST CASE IN THE WORLD, AND ITS PRETTY CHEAP!

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?
