Best case for large cards and quality?

:hello:


I was wondering the communities input for a good quality gamers case. Meaning it looks nice, has lots of air flow, and the ability to house large gfx cards.

I was told that LIAN LI has some really nice cases and this one looks really good.

Any recommendations on ATX compatible cases for the above specified reasons would be greatly appreciated.

    That one looks decent too. The only thing about the LIAN LI case I'm looking at is that it is a close fit with some of the large cards. I think I read a youtube post saying it offers 11.5 inches...

    Piss off with your advertisements, especially on a great site such as TH.



    @ Dadiggle

    My price range is about $130-150 plus tax and shipping, I'll check out that HAF case...
  4. The Haf series or the Antec 900/1200 or DF 85 would be my first choices. The DF85 has some amazing features for the price.
  5. I have built boxes using the 1200, 932, HAF-X and DF-85 .... the HAF-X replaces the 932; the DF-85 replaces the 1200.

    I like all the new features added to the HAF-X .... I don't like some of the features that stayed.

    The DF-85 greatly improves on the 1200 however . The time to take out / replace air filters for example on the DF-85 takes seconds compared to minutes on the 1200 (HAF doesn't have air filters. The hot swap 2.5" bay on top of the DF-85 just rocks for taking data from one PC to another. And the DF retains all the nice fan speed controls of the 1200. Finally I prefer the sturdinees of the DF as compared to the "loosey goosey" tool less features of the HAF series. Finally, the DF still fits CPX form factor PSU's making for a quieter computing experience.

    Antec DF-85 w/ CP-850 is $270
    HAF-X w/ XFX Black 850 is $310

    I just ordered an XFX Black 850.

    I'm really liking the lian li case. Does anybody have any thoughts on it?

    I'd say this but then you have the postage.

    HAF-X has $20 off.
    http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119225&Tpk=haf-x

    For $179.99 inc delivery I would say take that over the LL, with shipping the LL is $165.

  9. This might sound funny, but if you don't want to run more than 2 hard drives, you don't want to run more than 2 video cards... You can get a pretty cool case that can fit a full ATX board, and full size video cards, power supplies and most aftermarket CPU coolers except for watercoolers. I picked up the Cooler Master Elite 360 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119195

    If your video card is huge, and your power supply is huge, it can still fit as long as your video card has power connectors on the top, and not the back end. If your video card is like the 9800gtx... it fits too, but since the power connector is on the back... it can smash into the power supply... so this case is only recommended for video cards with power connectors on the top.

    I use this case with a Zotac GTX465, and it is like 9.5 inches and still fits with a little clearance from my 550w PSU. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814500163&Tpk=zotac%20gtx465

    The case also comes with a 120mm fan in the top that is silent. I took a lot of pics of my configuration. If anybody wants to check it out. PM me.

    Cheers :D
  10. Also, I have seen these in my local shop and they can handle anything... here is Newegg's listing... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811133100

    It is on my wishlist for the summer when I upgrade again. I just went with the uber small case I have now as a challenge and the little Coolermaster 360 is so small, no one can believe I have a GTX465 in it...
  11. ^Your right about the size thing and the CM360 is an ok budget case but not really in the same leauge as the others.

    I'm liking the look of that new Thermaltake you listed, they do a HAF-X version as well.

  12. I have a question for you benson733... what do you look for in the appearance of a case? Back in the days they first started adding windows and too many LEDs, I freaked out. I usually look for painted insides, no sharp edges, tooless design, and lots of duct cooling. On the outside I like to find sleek cases that don't stand out with too many graphics or bright colors... what is your opinion?

    I always think it's a shame when you find the case that fits all your needs on the inside, but the outside looks like Alienware... :kaola:

    I think Dell style cases look cool, but suck inside... that is why I usually end up with Cooler Master.
