Can someone recommend a good Case for my build. (Must come with 2+ fans)

Recommended Posts

How many fans does it need? Why not just get a cheap case and a cheap fan?

 

This case includes one fan

definitely leaves room in the budget for extras

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

honestly the best looking cases IMO are the ones luke used for geodude, the phanteks enthoo evolv tg matx cases (my matx came with 2 x 140mm PWM fans)

 

space for 2x 120mm + 1x 140mm in the front, 1x 140mm in the back, 2x 140mm up top - all the 140's can also be 120's but not vice versa

 

holy cow I think I must've gotten it on sale they're so expensive here in uk, hope it's affordable where you are

A sleeve bearing fan is a couple of bucks.  It will last less long than a modified rifle bearing fan but not a lot less.  They have to be mounted vertically, so no top or bottom air. But they can be big savings.  


Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.
