Gift cards ftw xD
I've got some extra dough and the need for a new case. =]

Looking at these three:
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Antec+-+Nine+Hundred+II+Com... nine&cp=1&lp=1

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Thermaltake+-+V9+Black+Edit... black &cp=1&lp=1

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Cooler+Master+-+690+11+Adva... II&contract_desc=null

For now I'm doing air cooling, but a brand new H70 would only be $80!
So the case would have to support water cooling for the future.

This will be mostly used for gaming and a full tower is out of the question atm or I'd buy the Phantom.
Please recommend me a case? Tell me experiences you've had with them!

Thanks in advance,

- Matt

my case temps are pretty much consistantly at 28c

i like the thermaltake you posted though

I was looking at the 300 but I'm looking for something with a little more design.

I love the look of the Thermaltake case, but it has such bad reviews.

Thanks for your input!

I can vouch for the Antec Nine Hundred II, cause I have it. IT IS AMAZING. Cable management, airflow, looks, are all flawless. I wouldn't recommend any other mid-tower in it's price range over this one. It can support an H50 and an H70, but the H70 might be a little cramped. Then again, it would be cramped in any mid-tower case.

You can get it for free and it does the job very well! For extra cooling get a scrap fan.

It doesn't have enough Hard drive bays, but I've done a similar build before. ;D


@ Bbpsword

Does the case support a large powersupply? Mine's about 3cm longer than the average.
I've only read good reviews about it so I'm really interested in buying this case.

I would love to buy the Phantom and probably will next year, but this year I'm choosing between those three.
Thank you though.
