hi, i was wondeing on what people think is the best case for £140/$224 or under, it can look like anything, but must be feature rich with good airflow, and (preferably but not essentialy) a removable mobo tray.

More about : case performance

I have a haf 922, and its pretty nice, plenty of fans and airflow, and the ability to add more fans. The 932 and the hafx are bigger and are supposed to be better

Just my opinion:

lian li X1000 is currently selling on newegg for $199. It is the best, bar none. But... across the pone, it might be priced much higher.

Otherwise, the Antec 1200 is hard to beat. Looks good too. No removeable mobo tray, but it is really not that useful.

From my experience the HAF-X 942 is the best case I've used to build with. And I own an Antec 1200. It's a nice case as well, but that HAF-X /sigh

i <3 you reaper :D  it looks beast!
is the lancool air better? i can afford it! :D 
November 19, 2010 2:43:23 PM

I would REALLY not get the Lian Li, I mean it's awfully ugly and so freakin expensive, all that money on some red metal box? It doesn't even have that many features

Did you watch the reviews on the Colossus? It has a compartment for iPods and stuff which I think is pretty sweet, and it looks gorgeous with the black and red combo.

It's not available in the US atm but outside of the US it is. I'm glad you liked it, always here to help you bro :)

Make sure you get the right color combo and look for the cheapest and most convenient place to buy :)

November 19, 2010 3:16:26 PM

Yeah I meant that one, and yeah, don't get it...
November 19, 2010 4:11:45 PM

November 19, 2010 4:11:51 PM

its not red... but anyways, ok!
November 19, 2010 6:13:32 PM

It looks stupid :p 
November 19, 2010 6:27:38 PM

November 19, 2010 6:28:35 PM
