I'm about ready to start ordering my new build, but I'm unsure on what case I want to go with. Needs to be mid to full size, good airflow and quality. Prefer under 150$ but I'm willing to spend more for something solid.
Anything from silverstone or lian li is good. I've had experience with those brands. A lot of people seem to like antec cases. They're a little cheaper and glowier, but I prefer the clean aluminum look.
I will probably choose a Lian Li case for my new build if I go high, and Rosewill if I go low[er]. Antec cases are solid and look nice, but seem to lack the cable management features that Lian Li and Rosewill offer.
RV02 has better cooling
RV02 is quieter
RV02 has better cable management
1200 is bigger and roomier, but really in excess
RV02 has better dust filters which are also much easier to clean and take care of
And personally, i think it looks better. Although i used to own a 900 so I do like the 1200, I just think you get more for your money with the RV02.
