Deciding on a new case to kick start some upgrades to my PC

EDIT: I’ve just had a look at some at some other forums and seen the Lian Li 011? Does anyone have any experience with this case? Coming in at £130 it’s top of my budget but might be worth it?

The Lian Li PC-O11D is definitely worth it. It won Case of the Year 2018 from both Gamers Nexus and Dmitri (myself included, so I guess 2 and a half awards :D)

 

Note the $130 case comes with no fans, so you might want to look into fans that you want to put in your case besides any radiator fans you might use.

Hello, 

 

Please note my current PC Specs in my signature below. I’m working with GBP and my budget is no more than £130 for a case.

 

I’m looking to get a new case as my current case is very small and all of my components are pretty close and cooling isn’t great due to it only being able to house a H80i (120mm Rad). Also a lot of air coolers do not fit due to it being a narrow case. 

 

I wondered if if anyone could recommend any full tower or big cases that also look quite nice. I’d like to stick with a well known name and it must be able to fit a big beefy rad to aid with cooling. My motherboard is a Z270H which is a “normal” sized motherboard.

 

Hopefully once I choose a new case I will then get a new AIO (probably H110i or something similar) and possibly a new psu. Then my intention is to overclock my cpu a bit to gain some extra performance. I just wanted to make sure the cooling was sufficient as right now unfortunately it gets pretty hot.

 

Thanks for all your help in advance :)

Sorry i took a while to reply.

 

I ended up buying the Lian-Li PC-011 Dynamic and i just finished building in it this morning.

 

It was a dream to work with and a lovely case to look at! I can see why it has won awards!

 

Thanks to the both of you who helped me out :)
