Need a case

Oh, yes, I'm stupid. 

for 5.25" bays, look at the:

Fractal Focus G (it's cheap, sure, but airflow is pretty good)

Deepcool Tesseract BF (it's ancient, but works)

BQ PB600 (airflow is eh, it's a silent case, after all)

Phanteks enthoo pro (the best here, imo)

 

Get the enthoo, it's practically the best here. Full tower convenience, coupled with rad support

https://pcpartpicker.com/product/BfPKHx/phanteks-enthoo-pro-tg-rgb-atx-full-tower-case-ph-es614ptg_bk (tempered glass side panel) 113 bucks

https://pcpartpicker.com/product/mn3RsY/phanteks-case-phes614pbk (acrylic side panel, my pick) 99 bucks

BQ 500DX: 

TD500:

P400a/p400a digital:

meshify C (don't forget to buy two fans with it): 

 

Edit: dumb suggestion on my part, didn't see the 5.25" requirement. see the post below 

 

 


It is but human, to err, to buy a PSU, akin to dirt,

but fret not, young Padawan, for we will tell you, 

what will become, of that, which you have earned

Can't find any listing for the lancool II mesh, but whenever that's available, it'd be a good one too

Fractal Define Series is a good choice, only has average airflow though.

None of those has a 5.25" bay, unfortunately.

 

My two picks would be Corsair's Air 540 and 450D - they're a little older now, so they lack the tempered glass, PSU shroud (in the case of the 450D) and front panel USB-C, but they're good in terms of airflow (actually the 540 is about as good as it gets) and also both feature a couple 5.25" bays.

There's also the Fractal Design's Define series, though you'd be sacrificing on airflow there quite a bit.

yes, sure it's expensive, but it's beautiful. It's worth selling a kidney for
