im looking for a case with these specifications. budget is around 100$

right now im using an Antec two hundred. but i want something with a bit more room and thats a bit flashier.


i need something that can comfortably fit 3 hdd's and two Ati 5770s.

something that is also clear sided.

i intend to put in some red fans and red cathodes to give it an hot look.

the more aggressive looking the better

right now im looking at this coolermaster. do you think it could fit the hdd's and 5770's well?

Nice case! haven't read or heard anything negative about it..
Think it would be fine for your plans.
The HAF912 has a lot of options you can add, and features almost the exact same interior.
HAF 922 is huge and very good = doesn't have fan filters though

The coolermaster haf 922 is probably one the best mid-range cases you can get for under $100.

Some of it's features include:
five 5.25" external drive bays
transparent side panel window
two enormous 200mm fans (one in the front and one on the top) as well as a 120mm rear fan
tool-free installation of drives
Ton's of room to fit the largest video cards (and liquid cooling)
dimensions are: 22.20" x 10.00" x 19.70"

With two usb 2.0 ports, audio, an e-sata (yes there is one). This is definitely good enough as USB 3.0 still isn't too mainstream yet. And if you invest in a decent motherboard you can have the usb 3.0 ports that you are looking for. This case is very spacious, well built, and even looks pretty good (IMO). This case is currently going for $104 on newegg and that price drops to 89 bucks with a rebate.

i do like the haf 22. However i would like something with an open clear side. Are there any side panels you can buy separately for the case that are clear sided?

im not so sure... Sites like that are always so iffy. You never know about their reputation with shipping or getting your order right.

I was able to find the product you wanted on Newegg.com although it's in black and blue instead of Black and Red.

personally I like the blue better...

well i found the perfect case for what i want. the Lexa Blackline red

http://www.gamejava.com/nzxt-lexa-blackline-blackred-cl...

i have searched everywhere for it, and this website is the only place i can find it. Does the place look reliable?


Well I wouldn't trust the website if I were you. It has a bad rating in my Web Of Trust scorecard (http://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/gamejava.com).
Besides, it looks sh**** to be honest. Cheap looking layout for a hardware store.

Yeah, hopefully it's just a pseudo warehouse store where they get mass shipments and sell at lower prices. Seen a couple of European Airsoft stores just like that.
