    Case suggestions for EATX mobo

    30.5cm x 27.1cm to be specific, or 12" by 10.7" if my conversion skills are correct. I have a define R5 for my current/old build, and while I do like it, what sets apart some of the other choices on the list is the 4x USB 3.0 on the front. I'm also less a fan of the design of it, it's functional and wonderful, but better airflow and design can be achieved with other cases. I do appreciate the suggestion as they are mighty fine cases.

    I did see that and I'm willing to pick the 500M over the 500P mesh for the styling even with the price increase... Although if I had to shave costs anywhere that'd be the first thing to change.

    Case suggestions for EATX mobo

    Thanks for the reply @TVwazhere I just binged a bunch of the GN reviews for cases and saw that review and was surprised! Haha. I still haven't decided on a case but at the moment the CM H500M is asking questions, as is the Lian-Li O11 Air (w/o dust filters)

    Case suggestions for EATX mobo

    My bad @Syntaxvgm Appreciate the input again. At the moment the plan is to have the PC sit on the desk rather than in a slot or under it. Hence why taller is less of an issue than wider. But I might be willing to put up with the Lian-li just because it seems so well designed.

    Case suggestions for EATX mobo

    Don’t sweat not spotting it. This is one hell of a good list we have here. A few of these I’ve just missed like the Lion-Li air case. Right now I think it might be between the Lion-Li, the classic CM and the Fractal. Some more research and this could be fun haha.

    Case suggestions for EATX mobo

    Appreciate the speedy response! I’ve seen the Meshify banded around a few times and did like it. But I had a slight concern that throwing two GPUs in there would just packed in a little tight... The others are, a sight to behold... haha. I am looking for something that does fit on the desk a bit better than the carbide, and has some half way decent looks... Might measure it all up for the Meshify and see how I feel.
  7. Hey all, Just finishing up planning a build which is going to use an EATX board with a dual GPU setup. Currently looking at cases and having a hard time deciding what case to use for the setup. The setup is going to be primarily air cooled as I don’t have the experience to build a custom loop and I don’t see the advantage of an AIO to a large air CPU cooler. (Feel free to change my mind on this ) With that in mind, has anyone got a suggestion for a good case that would fit all of this nicely with good airflow for cooling? Many thanks!
