    Default Cases

    My new build is getting closer and closer..as in I'm going to be building it soon! Though I'm extremely torn (Well..one of the things I'm torn on) is a case!

    I want a good amount of room, and a big/nice window to view the inside of my PC. Two of I have seen so far that seem pretty nice are the Corsair 760T and the Phanteks Ethoo Luxe. Does anyone have any experience with those cases, or would you recommend any cases to me? Thanks! :)

    Check out the Corsair 600C. I just swapped into one of those and it is hands down the best case I've ever owned.

    I wrote a thread about it.

    I actually have the 600Q (Quiet). They make a 600C that is identical except for a clear door. Might be just what you're looking for!

    Both are great cases. Also look at Fractal Design Define S.

    I love the case I decided to go with for my new build (NZXT H440 - White). Tons of room to work with and a great view of the internals. Sleek, quiet and clean. This build is rightfully deemed the "Stormtrooper Build" :)

    Careful using the attach function, you can't delete them and it requires a sgt to help you as you can only have so many

    Thanks for the head's up. I took a look around in my profile and found the spot where it shows you what you are allowed (never would have thought to check that out without the warning).

    I'll keep an eye on it and get back to using an image hosting site for these types of things :)

    I got an NZXT s340. That thing is literally so cool, I got 2 feet of red lights to surround the hardware inside as well, but the color depends on if you get a color other than red.

    I highly recommend the Phanteks Enthoo Pro. Comes in 3 Colors (Black, White and Titanium Green) and for $100, it's got all the bells and whistles you need, but looks sleek and modern on the outside.

    You can't go wrong with just about anything from Corsair or NZXT. The Corsair 300R is a surprisingly good "budget" case.

    Well thanks for all the suggestions!

    I think I kinda narrowed it down, as of now at least until I see another case haha..

    Right now it's mainly between the Phanteks Luxe and the Phanteks Evolv ATX. Both look great..!

    Sorry I got to this late, not sure if you're still looking - I just built a new rig a couple of months ago using a be quiet! Silent Base 800 Orange (http://www.bequiet.com/en/case/546). Awesome design, extremely well thought out, the fans that come with it are incredibly quiet - I had to keep popping open the front panel to see if they were in fact turning. I also used their CPU cooler and PWM fans, I would recommend their stuff hands-down.

    I like antec because 1) they look cool, 2) theyre affordable, 3) if you lose a part, they replace it for free unlike cooler master
