What is a good case for next gen?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Soon i'll get new PC and i want to ask which case is good with airflow. I don't really care about RGB i'm just interested with good airflow and good mesh. 
I have Fractal Design Define R5 and i can't find any better than my case. I'm looking for Mid-Tower case with window. I was looking for Be quiet case, it has good mesh but i'm not sure about fans. What do you guys would recommend? Also to be clear, not every cases are available in my region like some Lian Yi that aren't available.

Also, if you can't help tell me then what is your case and why did you choose it ;) 

 

Budget is going to be max $1900

The define r5 is a wonderful case and you'd have absolutely no problems reusing it and saving $80

 

my go-to recommendation for good airflow is the Fractal Meshify C

My R5 is completely destroyed so not a chance. 

I don't like small cases like Meshify C

If you are talking about the Pure Base 500DX, it's a good case. There's also the Lancool II Mesh and the Cooler Master TD500 Mesh, but I don't know if those are available in your region or even a good price, or too small for your taste since you think the Meshify C is too small.

I'd recomend the Cooler Master TD500, Phanteks P400A, Lian Li Lancool II mesh, fractal design meshify C or the pure base 500DX or even the Phanteks P300A.

 

How much of your budget would you like to spend on the case. What other parts will you use?

I will probably go with Corsairs latest one, the Icue 4000X RGB

 

It looks good, it is dark tempered glass, it´s multiple versions for front with glass, mesh or solid, and what i found intriguing, it comes with a vertical GPU mount. Would do a lot to hide those horrible cables placed awkwardly on the cards.

Wow that looks so good. I'll have to wait for review and airflow. I hope this case fits good for AIR Cooling.

Pauls´s hardware just released a review, and i feel it would do well for my use. I mean, it´s probably not dead silent, but it´s very very price competitive. You get 3 of their new fans as well, and the lightning node. 

 

If i could get the case without the fans tho, it would be a dead solid one, because i would switch them out to the incredible priced Lian Li fans they just released. The fans have a slide in mechanic, so you dasychain them side by side. Also, the RGB on them is so delightful.

Link for you.

A little showcase

 

 

They just .... ah man.. and the price O_o

You get a three pack for around 75 Euro, controller included.
