Ok here are my cases im deciding between

http://www.dabs.com/products/antec-300-three-hundred-ca...

http://www.dabs.com/products/gigabyte-gz-g2-gaming-case...

http://www.dabs.com/products/zalman-z11-plus-high-perfo...

the last one is not in stock and will delay my build by 1-2 weels according to customer services so feel free to take that into account. im not too fussed about waiting though.

the rest of my build is as follows

Sony Optiarc 24x Internal DVD Multi Writer (DVD-RW/RAM) with Black Bezel Bare

Corsair Memory 600W Gaming Series GS600 High Performance 80 PLUS® Certified PSU

Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 CPU Cooler

Gigabyte M6880 Laser Mouse

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 670 980MHz 2GB PCI-Express 3.0 HDMI Overclock


Gigabyte Z77-DS3H S1155 Intel Z77 DDR3 ATX

Seagate 500GB Barracuda SATA-600 7200RPM 16MB 3.5" Hard Drive

G.Skill 8GB (2 x 4GB) Ripjaws-X DDR3 PC3-12800 1600MHz CL9

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium w/SP1 - 1 PC - OEM - DVD - 64-bit - English

Intel Core i5-3570K S1155 3.4GHz 6MB


possibly chaning the MOBO to asrock z77 extreme4 is that makes a difference

Zalman looks good to me aesthetically (but beauty is in the eye of the beholder) & feature wise too ... I'd like one if that is available in my area.

Gigabyte & Antec is too narrow for me.... ( only 7.28" & 8.07" respectively ).

From these, I would get the Zalman Z11, because it is a decent case,

but it offers more fans installed (5) than Antec, so the value is higher.

The case is also bigger, making it easier to connect it inside. It looks good too.

Thanks guys I also want to choose the zalman case but because of the 2 week delay it would add to my build i may get a different one. what would you guys suggest out of the other two?

Wait... what is two weeks compared to a lifetime of looking back & wishing you got the Zalman?

Well i'll just throw in that I really like it whens theres 2 front fans, I think it looks really cool, and HDD are one of the more expensive part of any build and extra cooling to them would not hurt one bit.

using the UK dabs site could anyone reccomend any of the other sub £50 cases. so far im probably going to wait for the zalman z11.
