Need Help Selecting a Case for New Setup

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi All,

I'll be building a new setup soon but I'm unsure what case is good. Went to find some reviews site on case but not much can be found or some reviews cant be found for certain cases.

FYI, I'm from Singapore and the build will purchase from the PC stores available here so options are quite limited to whatever they are selling.

I want an ATX case with 1st priority, good cooling and 2nd, looks.

Max price is $100 SGD.

 

My Planned Setup is as follows:-

AMD Ryzen 5 3600
MSI B450 Tomahawk Max
MSI 2070 Gaming X TRIO
G.Skill Trident Z  RGB Neo 3000 16GB
Adata XPG SX8200 Pro M.2 NVME 500GB
Crucial MX500 1Tb
Corsair RMx 650W Gold
Cooler Master 212 black RGB

 

Image shown is the case available which i can purchase from based on brochure.

 

Thank you!

What is your monitor resolution/refresh rate, and is an RX 5700 a lot cheaper?

Far as cases go, the Focus G isn't bad, you just want something with a mesh front so you have airflow.

 

the Q300L has a unique form factor, just don't do watercooling in it.


I edit my posts a lot, Twitter is @LordStreetguru just don't ask PC questions there mostly...
 

Spoiler

 

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

 

what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

 

What games or other software do you need to run?

Monitor MSI Optix MAG27CQ, 2560 x 1440 WQHD and 144 Hz refresh rate

 

Yeah RX5700 is definitely cheaper, a Powercolor RX5700XT Red Devil 8Gb cost $685 while MSI 2070 Super Gaming X trio cost $852 (theres the 2 fan version but decided to pay a bit more for 3 fans version) 

 

I decided to go for 2070 instead of 5700 cause its more stable. Understand performance wise both are more or less on par, maybe some say 5700 a bit better, but there's also some complains regarding its programming/system? 

 

Focus G honestly looks plain to me, isn't there any others that has good airflow and atleast a decent look? 😅

 

Q300L is micro atx , looking for a mid tower case.

 

Thanks you!
