Dear Community,

I am planning on getting a new case, so far I am kind of liking these cases a lot! It is mostly for aesthetic point of view since I know one is better for Big upgrades. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

1) CM Storm Enforcer

2) SilverStone (like both colors)

3) H2

I know all of the can handle CF or SLI. NOT planning on triple CF. Which would you choose for long run? Thanks

Really hard to advise you,since your taste are all over the place no to mention the budget too!
A gamer case,a niche case,and a silent case.
What are you looking for exactly?

I have the Silverstone Fortress 03, and i love it, but i cant see how it can handle CF/SLI as it is a micro ATX case only.

Instead of throwing out my own subjective choices on what other case I like best, I'll give my opinions on the three you like.

The Silverstone is a neat design, but it's microATX and requires a slot-load optical drive, so it wouldn't be my choice.

Between the NZXT and the Storm Enforcer, in my opinion it would come down to if you plan on going for heavy overclocking or a nice, quiet design. In my experience, silent cases are sweet for any setup where the noise level matters to you, but when you start overclocking you add in some more fans and run them on higher settings (silent cases tend to have poor airflow due to the great noise reduction) the sound level creeps right back up to the same as any other case.

Since I usually care more about boosting performance than keeping it silent, I would choose the Storm Enforcer. However, if I was making a HTPC, I wouldn't need gaming hardware or a heavy OC, and I would choose the NZXT.

I would buy this case LIAN LI Lancool PC-K62.
It's a gamer case with clean looks and good airflow.

I really appreciate all responses and suggestions, It is a really hard decision on cases, like you all know. As of now I like the storm enforcer because it can have 2X200mm which for what I have read provide high airflow, and at "~19db" that's a little hard to believe, but considering that the storm enforcer can be "quiet"? If anyone know if that's correct about bigger fans, any input is appreciated. On the other hand, I am still liking the FT03 just because it looks very cool. For the H2, I saw that supposedly the Fractal Design R3 is better... The 2 suggested cases the new company it looks too aggressive, am looking for something more simple. The second Lian Li, Its a pretty simple look, nice airflow, and side window(which is always good). I would have like if it was aluminum like most other Lian Li. Thanks, Now I think am still leaning towards The Storm if (200mm are really quiet), and the FT03, but am also looking at some nice Lian Li aluminum cases. Thanks all
