I want a new case for under $100 that's really good.

Recommended Posts

Looking for a new case to replace my not-so-good Rosewill Prism S Lite Black. Any recommendations? (I was thinking the NZXT case)

The Phanteks P300A is pretty well the best budget TG ATX-mid tower as it has great airflow, the P400A is the big brother to the P300A, if found in stock it can be had for around $100USD. 

Airflow focused cases are better as more airflow = better temps = lower temps.

 

The Fractal Design Meshify C TG is another very good option, I own it, best case I have owned to date. Very well made, great cable management, perfect size, and very good for airflow.

the nzxt h510 series are very good cases, and they are pretty nice to build in too. I had an NZXT H510 holding my second rig, ended up replacing it with a meshify C TG Blackout only because I had a friend letting it go almost new for not alot of money. And I'm a sucker for fractal cases (look at my bio). That being said for that price NZXT H510(i), Fractal Meshify C, Phanteks P350X, P360X all good choices. I have built in all of them and I must say the fractal is the best to build in followed by the nzxt then the phanteks.

I personally own, love, and enjoy the NZXT h510i. Cooling is great and there is a lot of room considering that its a mid tower.

It's worth waiting for it to come back into stock for it to be $100. 

I have been trying to hunt down the white one for about a month now but they just aren't coming back in stock for a while I guess

The white ones are very popular, I purchased another one on Amazon a few weeks ago, I live in the US so I'm not sure if that is the difference. Due to Covid-19, I doubt it will be back in stock until July. 

Worth the wait, and now you can save for for the i version. 
Also, $30 a piece for an RGB fan sucks.

I am jealous. I am in the US so hopefully they will be back sooner than july but who knows. I don't know if I want the RGB one. I don't have a lot of RGB stuff in my system as is but I wouldn't mind setting the lights to a static color. I am tempted to save for the elite version as that looks pretty nice but $170 is a little on the high side for me.
