Hey all, I'm having some trouble deciding between these two cases. They both seem good and the Cougar has a sweet price but not sure if it's as good at the Thor V2.

Cougar Evolution Full:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $90
Rosewill Thor V2:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $120

I will also take suggestions for other full cases. My budget is $120. Preferably I'd like them to fit my 2x 120mm blue led fans I have :) .

Thanks in advance!

Wow, really nice case but the extra $15 in shipping cuts it off as a choice unfortunately. Sucks I can't get it :( .

So anything else you can recommend that's $120 with free shipping or under? Or is one of the cases I linked good enough?

Sweet! I'll get the black phantom then. But I see it as $130 not $120.

I read issues on it with a big cooler and not being able to attach a 200m fan on the side. I would like to put on 2x 120mm blue led fans in the case, will I be able to do it? I have a coolermaster v6 gt, which is a large cpu fan.

Does the top allow for 2x 120mm fans?

in fact it allows for 2x200mm!
June 7, 2012 5:22:37 PM

Ah okay. So I assume there are screw slots for 120mm?

Also what exactly makes this case better than those 2 I linked originally, want to make sure I get a good case :D .

yes you can mount 2x120mm fans on top.things that make it better than both of them-
nzxt is a reputable brand.
phantom is one of the most popular case.
looks really cool and costs less.
enough room to fit heavy setups,high airflow with up to 7 fan mounts.a lot of a hard drive mounts.
over all better.

Okay, good, thanks! How is the water cooling support on it? I also noticed it is labeled as E-ATX, what's that mean?

Wow, nice!

Two final questions (I hope) for you hellfire.
I. What does E-ATX mean?
II. Does that case have SSD support? I bet it does, but just in case.

Answers-
1-Extended ATX,it's slightly bigger than a normal ATX board and most likely they do have more expansion slots.phantom supports both ATX and E-ATX motherboards so no worries here.
2-hell yeah.

Sweet, in love with the case man, thanks for the suggestion. I thought alienware had nice cases, these NZXT cases blow them away.

Hellfire, the very first picture you posted, the white lights, what are those and where can I get them?
June 8, 2012 7:29:15 PM

Hellfire, for those NZXT sleeve LEDs do you have to use the PCI connector or can you just use the molex? I think I don't want to control the brightness or anything.

molex.
June 9, 2012 6:05:53 AM

Ok. And if I use PCI, it's just standard PCI slot right? I saw a video of an installation but couldn't get a close up of the ports.

yes it is a standard pci slot.
June 9, 2012 6:19:50 AM

Ok thanks. I hope the Blue LEDs shine a lot through the fan grills throughout the case. Not sure if I should buy some if the case doesn't have a clear side panel window. What do you think?
June 9, 2012 6:42:57 AM

Ok, thanks. With that you sacrifice the fan that goes on that clear panel though right? (The big fan).
