Need help choosing case

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I'm more or less set on the fact I want type-C support also so I narrowed it down to following cases(local prices for reference):
 

Nzxt H510 (93€)

FRACTAL DESIGN Meshify S2(160€)

PHANTEKS Eclipse P500A(115 €)

Lian Li PC-O11 Dynamic(138€)

 

First choice was H510 but I hear people are not the biggest fans of it because of lack of airflow. Fractal design Meshify should be awesome for airflow and I love the looks but that price...  P500A kinda looks a bit cheap but apparently good airflow and it has Type-C so it is here. Lian Li looks cool but it doesn't look like airflow would be the best. Any opinions?

I would go Meshify S2


AMD Ryzen 3 3200G / Sapphire R9 290X / 16gb (2x8) Kingston ValueRam @ 2666Mhz / Gigabyte A320M-S2H / Kingston A400 120GB M.2 SSD / WD Blue 2.5" 1TB HDD / Cooler Master MWE450 / Aerocool CS-100 / LG 22MK400H-B 1920x1080 @ 75Hz

I'd go with the first one. It's cheap and decent

It is true that the airflow isn't too great but people just parrot what Steve says in his videos. Your PC is still going to work fine. Runnng hotter isn't the end of the world. Back in the day PCs had no air flow at all. If money is a factor  just go with the first one and don't worry about it.

Either the s2 or the p500a between these. 

You could also check the 500DX which is good and has a type c port. 


Fun Fact: The Meshify c is the best case to ever exist.

I would suggest the Cooler Master NR600, it has great airflow but very affordable. Furthermore, it has that clean and cubic NZXT aesthetic to it. But if you really need the type-C support or if it's not available in your region then I'd take the Meshify S2.

Yeah, the current one is like that 😅 But thanks yeah, I like the design because all my room is pretty minimalistic. Nothing too extreme is planned anyway, R5 3600 successor and RTX3060/3070.

500DX is available in theory but not in stock so I will see when I will be buying, doesn't look that bad indeed. Thanks.

No, I did some research before hand and ended with those 4. Corsair 275R also look nice but no type-C.

Back in the day they didn't run that hot either. ;)

 

CPUs and GPUs had passive heatsinks (very small) if they had any at all.

 

The only fan in the PC was the PSU fan, if that even had one, some didn't back then.

 

CPU fans didn't become normal until the  P200 MHz and then the P2's.

 

Then a little later once the real gaming GPUs started coming out they also needed Fans.

 

Then case fans also started to become more normal around the same time. Usually one intake and one exhaust. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


i9 9900K @ 5.0 GHz, NH D15, 32 GB GSKILL Trident Z RGB, AORUS Z390 MASTER, EVGA RTX 3080 FTW3 Ultra, Samsung 970 EVO Plus 500GB, Samsung 860 EVO 1TB, Samsung 860 EVO 500GB, ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q 27", Steel Series APEX PRO, Logitech Gaming Pro Mouse, CM Master Case 5, Corsair HXi 850W Platinum.
