Planning to build a new PC in a couple months but I'm searching for a good case. Going to use 1 high-end video card (probably a 7950/70 or nvidia kepler). Also going to have an i5-3570k OCed with the Hyper Evo 212 cooler.
Many have recommended the Cooler Master HAF 912. I'm just worried that everything may not fit should I later decide to SLI/Crossfire high end cards and get a larger power supply PLUS have that specialty cpu cooler. Will the HAF 912 be good enough.
I prefer to have lots (too much) space to work with when building. Can anyone recommend any good FULL tower cases? Good meaning = high airflow/tool-less drive bays/2.5'' bays for SSD, etc.
I also bought mine when it still came with the "out the back" USB 3.0 cables because the motherboard header hadn't been standardized yet. I contacted rosewill and they gave me no trouble and shipped.me the entire top of the case/front panel with the new cables with the USB3.0 motherboard headers at no cost. Very satisfied with the customer service.
Theres's a few that I like;
The Enermax Fulmo GT can handle anything you throw at it. There's a couple of good ones from Coolermaster, like the 932 and cosmos II. I am quite fond of my NZXT Phantom, but if that's a bit over the top for you then look at the Switch 810, its a very nice case. Also look at offerings from BitFenix and Fractal designs. All very good case manufacturers that are on the cutting edge riught now.
Look up the Antec DF-85 case. 7 fans, 7 3.5" expansion slots, and more than enough room. It's fairly heavy, about 25 pounds, but it's a hell of a case. Just don't spill sprite through the top fans. Your system wont like that...
