Case suggestions

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi there

I am sick of my old case, it is bulky, noisy and a pain in the *** to clean.
Since my dad is about to change his PC I was thinking about giving him mine and buy me a new one.
So here I am asking for suggestions.
I do not like the gamery look of my old case and I would like an elegant case (a tempered glass panel would be appreciated), I am not interested in RGB or case lighting at all, it has to have a good airflow and some kind of dust protection.
My budget is around 100€ (115$).
I was thinking about the nzxt h500 85€ and add 2 Corsair ML120 25€ plus the one that I have on my radiator.
The 2 Corsair fan and the on that I have on my rad are 4 pin fan (pow) so that my mobo can adjust the speed and noise while I am using the PC, but the one in the case are only 3 pin.
Is there a case that meets my requirements and come with 4 pin fans?
If not, is there a case for 60€ that comes without fans so that I can add 4 Corsair ML120 for 50€ meeting my budget?

Phanteks P350X is very popular at the moment. I own one and I'm really glad about it.

It has RGB but it's not night club RGB and you can turn it off. Airflow is excellent. It will support 3 120mm fans + 2 extra fans or 1 240 or 280mm rad.

 

Plus, the black outside white inside version looks sick !

 

around 90€ online

Fractal Design Meshify C is a solid go-to case.

Fractal Design Focus G is cheaper:

Shop around of course, but I really like the Fractal build and design language.  I have the R6.

Define C TG or Meshify C if you want a mesh front


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!

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

Not sure if you have taken a look at the Corsair 275R yet, it has a very modest look with a tempered glass side panel.  Comes in white or black depending on your preference, and has a good amount of radiator support for future upgrades.  The two included fans are voltage regulated SP120's.  There is a silent variant we recently launched called the 275Q which comes with PWM fans and a PWM splitter, but no tempered glass.
