Best case for aorund $200?

Hello,I'm shopping for a case around $200 for my new Sandy Bridge built. Mid-tower or full tower, no plans for water cooling, moderate overclock. May use at some point a self-contained water cooling system but thats it.

I was thinking the Silverstone Raven RV02 Evolution

  1. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811139003&Tpk=600t Grab one of those and save some money. It has places for cables to hide, a knob to let you choose how fast your fans spin, and 3 fans. It is a great case. Hope this helped! ;)
  2. Well after i bought my Antec 900, i wished i would have bought an Antec 1200 because its bigger, which means better cable management, and more room to put things in. You obviously dont care about side panel windows right? if not then id go with the SILVERSTONE RV02B-EW. I think it looks cooler plus its a full tower case.

    Well, first of all, I like all the features of the case, and the white LEDs instead of the regular blue LEDs. The knob for the fan is just cool. Say you are surfing the web, you don't want to waste power and money, and you don't want the noise just turn the knob. It's pretty cool. The rest of the case is just nice too. It would also save you $100! It's a great case, I would get it if I had the money.

    Nice, the HAF X includes USB 3.0 in the front pannel, thats cool

    Yeah, also it has awesome airflow and you can fit anything in it. You should take a look at the http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129100&Tpk=Antec%201200%20v3 ,its also a very good case. With a budget of 200$ you can pick almost any case, just pick the one you like the most. :)

    ANTEC DF85 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681112908
    Both these cases are truly excellent and will last you for many many years to come, oh and there both full tower cases.
  9. I love my In Win Dragon Slayer. Everything stays cool and it looks wicked. Only drawback is MicroATX, if that's even a drawback. Plus its only $80. USB 3, water cooling holes, etc. Chainmail motif. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811108236&cm_re=dragon_slayer-_-11-108-236-_-Product

    I use to be an Antec die hard. I would not buy any others. Then other cases began passing Antec with great features. But today, I have to say, the Antec Dark Fleet are some of the best Cases on the planet. I now have two of the Dark Fleet 85's.

    Here is the Antec link. http://www.antec.com/Believe_it/product.php?id=MjQwNA==

    Here is a YouTube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nsl2gCYu3XA&feature=related

    I do agree with others, the flip rail doors over the 5.25 bays could have been left off. but since all of my Movies and Music sit on more drives, I use my optical drive very little.

    I bought the first case for $189 and the last one for $129. I have also purchased the DF-30 for the last 5 customer builds.

    I haven't seen those ones before. thanks!
  12. i got a NZXT Phantom. It's a very good case though adding extra Fans specifically by NZXT will be +$50 or so. Which makes it $190-$200
  13. Go with the Cooler master HAF X or the Corsair Graphite 600T
  14. So this it guys, I narrow it down to HAF X and Silverstone Raven 2 Evolution:

    Anybody has experience with the hot-swap solution of any of those towers?
