Buying a new case £50 budget!!!

Hello all! :D

I am building a new rig in the near future, but I am stuck as I cannot decide which case would allow all of my components to fit, allow room for upgrades, and allow nice air-flow (OC purposes). Could you help me decide which case would best suit my need within my budget of £50.

I live in England.

More about buying case budget
  1. I forgot to add I want good cooling (airflow), I shall also buy optional fans if available. The cooling is more important to me than looks.
  2. I require more opinions.
  3. Try the Rosewill Challenger. Its a great cost efficient mid tower case that has enough room for the Hyper 212 and the DH-14.
  4. Look at the antecs and xigmateks in that price range they are pretty decent

    Also get a CM 212 CPU cooler and think twice about pointless speed RAM

    (BTW none of your links work)
  5. To me it's between the: http://www.scan.co.uk/products/antec-one-black-mid-tower-performance-case-with-usb-30-w-o-psu

    And the: http://www.scan.co.uk/products/corsair-carbide-series-300r-black-mid-tower-gaming-performance-case-with-usb-30-w-o-psu

    Due to size and fan bays (with the fans included).

    What do you guys think, and can you recommend me some 120mm fans?
  6. Depends on what you like, it suits what you are looking for.
  7. HyperBlue said:


    Says in your first link for this case- 3 x 120mm
    2 x 80mm
  8. I think i'll choose the Zalman Z11 Plus, thanks for the help guys!

    I shall just hope that it will be able to keep all of my components cool!
  9. Your welcome.
  10. I have a Zalman Z11, and I love it :)

    Has cable management.
