just what case do I get?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

As of right now I am using a corsair spec delta rgb and I kinda wish I new how small it was when I bulit my system but whatever. I'm looking for a new case that is bigger, good looking, and also has good airflow and front intake.

 

I myself think the best looking case is the H510 because of it's modern plan box shape and you don't have to look at the ugly psu box thing on the bottom!

But I heard that it doesn't have good airflow :(

 

 

WHAT I LIKE:

I like the h710 and it has good airflow (i think), it's big but doesn't cut off the glass on the bottom :(

 

I like the in win 101 but it's not too good on airflow

 

I like the p350x but it's small and someone told me it has bad temps 

 

I like the 275r but it has an awful side panel that is a pain to put on and is small according to youtube

 

I like the nr600 but it has that weird bar going down the front 

 

I like the s600 but it's a heat box says everyone on youtube

 

WHAT I HATE:

I don't like the p400a because it has a bulge front

 

I don't like the meshify c because it has a ring around the front mess and has a pattern that I don't care about

 

PRICE:

I'm cheap, if possible i'd like to keep it $69.99 if now then I guess I can go to $100

 

MUST HAVE FEATURES:

i'd like to have these things on the case but maybe I can try something new but for the most part i like these things the most

 

flat front

 

airflow 

 

possibly a gpu support arm

 

little to no tint glass

 

big enough for an MSI RTX 2080 still with room because my case right now barly fits by less then .5 in

 

RULED OUT CASES:

ill put the cases that I 100% wish not to use so that you don't have to look at all the suggestions

 

p400a

 

meshify c

 

 

 

Sorry i'm super picky but I just want to find the perfect case! suggestions for case features or other looks welcome I guess

I'm not sure about your definition on "small", considering you call some of these ATX mid towers "small" only. Not that they are especially long like the Fractal Meshify S2 (think of it as lengthened Meshify C)

there just isnt many cases with side panel that doesnt go all the way down to choose from, you wont find this on ATX full tower cases from the start

I mean the h710 isn't even a full tower and it's plenty big infact I don't want a case that big because it will + tons of money but it's ok if it doesn't have it i just like it 

+ it's $30 over budget

NZXT and good airflow can't be in the same sentence

 

Jonsbo TR03 is what you're looking for /s

Quality is lower than the Lian Li PC-O11D, but airflow is fine.

The H700 is solid. Good build quality, and the three 120mm fans at the front can pull in pretty decent amounts of air from both side vents which should be good for most levels (entry, mid range, high end) of builds.
