Looking for E-ATX cases with excellent air cooling

I am looking to buy: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813188048&cm_re=evga_classified_x58-_-13-188-048-_-Product
and I'm looking for a good case to store it in. I plan on overclocking my cpu and possibly gpu/ram but I don't have the experience/$$ with/for water cooling so I plan on just using air to cool the system for now. I would just like suggestions on possible cases I can use.


I've looked at:
http://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-Aluminum-Tower-Black/dp/B001IZZ7N6/ref=wl_it_dp_o?ie=UTF8&coliid=I1Q3DD3A7XMAX&colid=26RPM0EJLAIAQ
http://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-High-Tower-Black/dp/B001EPUQAE/ref=wl_it_dp_o?ie=UTF8&coliid=I3GXDI0T91DCQX&colid=26RPM0EJLAIAQ
http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-CC800DW-Obsidian-Aluminum-Enthusiast/dp/B002JLAU58/ref=wl_it_dp_o?ie=UTF8&coliid=IOVJRQ4AK8ER7&colid=26RPM0EJLAIAQ
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811112243&Tpk=lian%20li%20pc-a70f

All of them look nice but I'm not sure how they perform as compared to each other.
Thanks for the help.

  1. Check out the Antec 1200, you can also view a video on youtube if you put that into the search bar. Have a great build and a great time with it.

    It was also on my list until I saw on its specs that it doesn't fit e-atx. Not from the size of the case it looks like, but from the lake of standoff hole locations.
  3. Silverstone Raven RV01 but she is an acquired taste as we all know
  4. jaieni - Hmmmm.....You're right. No mention of the Antec Twelve Hundred being able to accomodate an e-atx motherboard. That's odd.
  5. Go to youttube and view Gaming Rig X58 i7 920 GTX 285. Same MB as mentioned above. EVGA X58 4-way SLI requires 10 expansion slots. The MB mentioned above only requires 7. Antec 1200 has no problem with stand offs, thank you.

    So the screw/standoff holes on the classified are the same as an atx board, there's no extra ones? That's good to know cause that'll open up some more choices for a case.

    The 1200 does look pretty nice.
  7. I vote for the HAF 932. It's a great case.

    PS: That motherboard is WAY overkill for 90-95% of the people.
  8. If you would like to consider Antec, please check out the P193. It's designed for Quiet Computing as well as Extended ATX boards. The massive side fan doesn't hurt either. ;)

  9. Thanks for the replies, I think I'll go with the Corsair case. Now just to wait to see if there will be some black friday deals for it.
