BEST case for PERFORMANCE (not looks)

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 best case performance looks
  1. anybody? :(
  2. 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
  3. HAF is damn good, so is antec 1200 with aftermarket fans.
  4. $160 + free shipping + $20 MIR.

    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.

  8. Don't have to sacrifice either with:

    my god i wish i was in the usa :O that case is £212 here :O any cases for under £140 then ? ill look into he phantom, looks nice :P
  10. 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

  12. i <3 you reaper :D it looks beast!
    is the lancool air better? i can afford it! :D
  13. 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 :)
  14. Make sure you get the right color combo and look for the cheapest and most convenient place to buy :)
  15. i didnt say the lian li, i said if the antec lancool air is any good :D
  16. Yeah I meant that one, and yeah, don't get it...
  17. whats wrong with the antec lanboy?
  18. its not red... but anyways, ok!
  19. It looks stupid :P
  20. :O still say RV02 for $140!
  21. That or the Colossus :)
  22. yea but i'm in america. sad face.
  23. I am too haha xD I got the NZXT Lexa S
  24. I have an ASUS EEE pc POS running at what is it.. 1.6ghz with 1gb of ram. with a broken keyboard so I'm plugged in with a usb keyboard. lmao
  25. Eee... Now I wanna cry
  26. Christmas present. + I currently live on a boat till Dec 27th.
