Good case for white and black theme?

Just now, Auraa said:

Yeah I was thinking about the Meshify C or the H700i just not sure

both are good cases, H700i is larger and has better cable management, but meshify C is compact and competent. i have a Define C which is the same frame as the meshify and i have enjoyed building in it, quality is nice and unless you are an idiot like me and stuff it with watercooling then it has plenty of space :)

Recommended Posts

depends, whats the budget? NZXT H700i is what comes to mind, along with the Lian Li PC-o11 and the Meshify C


I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play MTGA & watch anime at 720p...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee! The Cassette Deck!

BeQuiet Pure Base 600.

 

Great, silent, no fireworks, no stupid lights (except white leds at the top), no stupid windows (but you can order windowed version too), no colors. Just good pc case.

Good for expand if you have more 3,5" drives, nice place for 2,5 SSD too.

Where someone can put more than 2 3,5" HDD drives in that case?

What is the point to buy big, expensive pc case if you can't add extra storage drives inside after?

Every time I see this kind of pc case, I wonder how is it different than laptop - anything else, except one or two drives, must be connected outside case, because producer makes lot of space for fans, lights etc. but forget about hard drives, expansion 3,5/5,25 slots etc. Modern motherboards have 4 SATA ports minimum, most of them even 6 (sometimes 8). This is made for a reason - to expand your pc. And PC case should support that type of expansion. Like PCI-E slots - you can use all of them if you want and PC case support that. So why not SATA ports? I'm just asking, because is more and more difficult to find really good PC case for expansion and is very easy to find expensive PC case that looks good but nothing more.

you can have three 2.5" disks behind the motherboard and then have two 2.5" or 3.5" disks in the basement. thats plenty for most people, i have never had more than one 3.5" HDD in my main rig ever. Not everyone wants a freaking ultra tower, some want a more compact case that can still take an ATX motherboard for the explansion slots and compatability. You can also always get a NAS for bulk storage and whatever games will install on it if you really care about storage, they are fairly cheap

NAS - so external solution, so - it's like laptop where I must buy external drives when I want to have more than single drive (or two in some cases)?

 

I agree that you may don't need storage now, but you may need it later. Adding second (third, fourth) HDD is way more efficient than replace HDD with bigger one.

 

I'm just saying - most of people may not need extra 3rd or 4th 3,5" storage space in pc case, but there should be possibility to add them anyway in the future. People don't need 4 fans too, it's absolutely pointless but they use these unnecessary fans anyway (mostly for good looking). And what will be next? "I don't use pendrives, so I don't really need USB in front"? "I don't use speakers, so I don't need jack connector in front?" "I don't need reset button, since I don't use it anyway?".

 

PC case is not just a box for makes everything fit. It's difference between desktop and laptop - desktop should be easy expandable. Not while you put everything together, but in the future.

 

Of course it's only my point of view.

2TB HDDs are pretty cheap, 4TB of storage + whatever you have in SSDs is more than i have ever filled personally so id much rather have a small and compact ATX system than 4 HDD slots where il use one or maybe two. to each their own, but i dont see the need for more than two 3.5" bays in every case

I've built in both the Define C (Meshify C essentially) and S340 elite

 

Cable management for both is easy (Define C on left, S340 on right)

20180805_153859.thumb.jpg.5da278654d9e5403e32731217ac78978.jpg20170521_204250.thumb.jpg.0d4ad9051243c8d1016d924f9e0fa7a7.jpg20180805_153913.thumb.jpg.484a3159d0fccef25eb77603d6aca6cc.jpg20170521_204853.thumb.jpg.062f3237e81c53b1e3815de9875ebfc5.jpg

 

Build quality is good in both, However the Define C will have a fair bit better airflow than the S340 Elite (And The Meshify C will have a lot more) I enjoyed building in both. 

 

For reference, there's also the H500 which is the updated version of the S340.
