Hey guys,

I'm looking for a computer case that is understated that doesn't scream "Look at my pretty lights!"

It's for gaming, and I will be overclocking, so high airflow is important. It also has to be very very quiet..

I've been looking at the some of hte ones below and would appreciate a recommendation

HAF-X
Antec 1200
Antec DF-85
Silverstone FT02B
Thermaltake Level 10 (Yeah I know, but i want...i just...want)

If there are others i'm considering that i'm leaving off the list, please let me know.

Thanks!

I'd also look at the Silverstone RV02 unless you think it screams "look at my pretty lights".
I wouldn't get the Thermaltake Level 10, just too much money to spend on a PC case.
Check out the Corsair 800D and the 600T, if you don't want a window the 700D is good.
Lian Li cases are great:

Notice it leads the performance charts, is virtually silent, looks great, and is a joy to build in. I can't recommend this case enough.

My vote too goes to the Silverstone FT02.. It fits your requirements absolutely.. Nice of AMW for posting those pics.. I too have the Raven RV02 with me and am mighty impressed with it.. The FT02 is virtually the same.. Excellent air cooling and near silent operation.. What more would anyone need..!!

That is a beautiful setup you got there. So clean as well! Grats!

Here's my only thing about the FT02....no usb3.0 in the front?

Does it really matter?

In my opinion? Not really. You can always get a media reader in the front with USB 3.0 if you want it.
