Hello,
I need help choosing a computer case, as the title may suggest. I really really really dont want a corsair HAF, I have a thing against this case, but I do want good air cooling. I also need a good sized case to hold this gear.

Motherboard: EVGA Z77 FTW LGA 1155 Z77 ATX Intel
Processor: Core i7 3770k 3.5GHz LGA 1155
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 16GB DDR3-1866
Graphics Card: EVGA GEforce GTX 680 4Gb (future proofing)
Hard Drive: 2 Western Digital VelociRaptor 500GB 10,000RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5"
COD: LG 14x Internal Blu-ray reader

Motherboard is rotated 90 degrees in this case, I/O ports come out the top. Very unique case.

I assume you mean the Cooler Master HAF. That case looks quite good what do you have against it?

Anyway, If I had to recommend a good sized case with suffiencent air cooling I would say http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (Antec Twelve Hundred V3). I have that case and I love it, no issues with it. Unfortunately it looks like it is on notify for newegg.

When it comes down running, you want a case that looks nice in the room and has nice airflow, and is easy to get to everything in your rig. Those expensive cases, are just the same thing re-released with same options in different places.

whats your style like? do you like to see the inside of your rig, with plexi glass and Lights, do you like sleek Design, big, small?

If money is absolutely no objection.

Thats about the most extreme of all extreme cases and will do freaking anything you wanted it to do. Throw a quadruple rad in the bottom and mod a triple rad on the back and you'l have yourself a water-cooling beast.

Though chances are you aren't after such extreme solutions :lol: .
This is a much more reasonable extreme solution.

I really am looking for a Sleek design case, like the Phantom 820, (which is a nice case, but im being picky since i want this case to last me many years to come) A window is nice but not needed, its just a bonus. I really like the phantom 820, and the Raven 3. I want something that is unique in design that gets generally good airflow if you know what I mean.

I really like that 820, its a very nice case, I Kinda want it now lol. Its just a sxc case, imo your putting to much thought into it. Get something you like, eventually your gonna lose the ecstasy of it anyways.

Well, I do want the best air cooled case for my gear and I dont want water cooling. I am starting to grow on the HAF, its just... I wanted something flashier, but then again, Its a personal use thing... Im fooling myself...

Feel like I'm just throwing out ridiculous suggestions at this point. Dont know if your considering actually getting a case this expensive.


Well actually, I was looking at the Cosmos II for a few days, looking at reviews and such. I thought i might have wanted it, but changed my mind after actually having seen it in person. I dont have the space for that beast in my room... Not under my desk nor on top of it...
