  1. try the Cooler Master HAF 912 Advanced... it's a great case for the budget.
  2. I would pick either the haf 912 or one of those Sentey cases for the cable management features. Only thing kinda weird about one of the Sentey cases is it has blue fans and a rear red fan, but that is easily replaced if it looks weird.
  3. I would be careful with the HAF 912. It has a grounding issue where a static discharge from your finger could fry you components inside.

    I know for a fact the black box Sentey has only blue LEDs because I've done work in two of them. I'm pretty sure the front, top and side fan are blue while the back fan has no LED. I think just the red parts inside the case can give the illusion of a red LED fan.
  4. Antec 300 without a 2nd thought .... Antec 300 Illusion for another $10 adds additional cooling.

    Could you get around the grounding issue by installing rubber grommets beneath all screws? Do other cases like the Lian Li or Sentey cases have grounding issues?

    I wouldn't have any idea. Anybody that has had that issue certainly didn't rebuild with the same case to see if rubber grommets would do the trick haha.

    For whatever case you do buy, make sure it is tool-less. The convenience of having a tool-less case is something you wont understand until you've actually had one.
  8. To Bullwinkel, the description says one of the sentry cases has a red rear fan, here is a copy of the fan description:
    2 x 120mm Side Blue LED Fans
    1 x 120mm Front Blue LED Fans
    1 x 120mm Red Rear Fan
    2 x 120mm Top Fans (optional)
    1 x 120mm Interior Fan (optional)
    Maybe it is a newegg mistake, i dunno.
  9. I'd get the Haf 912 Cooler Master Great Cable management.
