Another "Best Case For Me" thread. Looking for help

I'll keep it short and sweet. Been doing TONS of research to find a new case. I've got a new GTX470 SC that's getting up to 90C under load and locking up my PC. My old Apevia case doesn't seem to be doing the job with air flow no matter how I adjust the 4 80mm fans. I've got a Corsair liquid cooling unit on the CPU so that is not a concern with the cooling.

Anyway, as proven by my previous choice (Apevia) I'm trying to keep it kind of cheap, price wise, on the new case. Here are the ones I've come up with. If anyone has any personal experience or recommendations on these or others, I'd REALLY appreciate the help. Wanting to order something in the next day or so. Thanks for looking!

  1. I would pick one of the quiet rated rosewill cases. I'm not a big fan of multiple fan cases. I don't believe they move that much more air, just create noise. Each case fan needs an open outlet to let the air flow out. Some fans pointing straight for the video card or cpu don't do any good. One good 120mm fan at the front and back are often adequate.

    Depends on the case. An HAF 922 case is not loud and moves plenty of air thanks to its larger fans.

    For a budget case, I would go with this.

  3. Thanks guys, I appreciate the help. I'm gonna take a closer look at the HAF 922 but I think I might stick with one of the less expensive Rosewill's. If anyone else has any input, especially personal use recommendations, I'd appreciate it.

  4. I would go with the budget CM case I linked over a Rosewill case. Better quality
  5. Newegg has a basic rosewill atx case for around $21 shipped in today's email promos. Sorry I can't provide a link. It comes with one 120mm fan, and room for one more in the front.
  6. Thanks again for the suggestions. I went with this one:

    It's the Rosewill Challenger. I got it for $50 with free shipping. So far, so good. I moved the rear fan to one of the available side panel spots to make room for my Corsair CPU liquid cooling system and the other side port is left empty. I like the set up of this case, better than others I have used. It looks very nice and, more importantly, I have seen idle temps drop 8-10C on both my CPU and GPU.

    Again, thanks for taking the time to make suggestions. Any questions on this case, feel free to ask me.
