Hi Everyone,

Need a case.... I was looking at these:

1. Silverstone Fortress FT02.
2. Cooler Master HAF-X.
3. Lian Li A75.

Or any other option that you guys may suggest.

Get the HAF X, it's a brilliant case (very big though). Another good choice could be the NZXT Phantom which is a bit smaller.

Well FT02 is certainly a pricey option. Phantom has that plasticy feel too it. I am leaning towards the FT02... its just the $240 thing that is putting me off a little.

everything always comes down to price--ft02 uses a lot of quite thick aluminium so puts the cost up

would recommend the coolermaster storm trooper as a great case at a reasonable price if the ft02 is too dear

$120 after rebate

As someone that has used the HAF-X for a few of my friends builds I have to say it's a marvelous case for the price. I'm not fond of the look of it, but the size/functionality is really quite awesome.

While I haven't personally worked with the Silverstone cases, I hear nothing but good things about them. I would pick between those two, and weigh the balance between price/asthetics.

MC Hammer... where is that guy now?

Anyways, I will keep my options open, if i can fit the FT02 into my budget, i will go for it. Otherwise, will go for the HAF-X. Keeping this flexible.

What kind hardware do you want to fit in that you need a Full Tower? Because cooling capability is not going to be better than a good mid tower would deliver and you would need a lot of stuff to make the additional room of a full tower not go to waste.

I'm sure you have considered them by now but the Antec 1100, 1200 and DF 85 are all great cases.

As an owner of an Antec 1200 case, I can't recommend it. The cable management is meh at best and everything requires a tool.

Trust me, I'd get a HAF-X over the Antec 1200. I'd imagine the DF85 isn't much better.
