Popular mid-tower cases around $100 ish?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys, basically the title says it all. I'm building a desktop for College and can't decide what case to get. Part of it is that I'm just not really up-to date on the most recent cases, so I figured i'd just turn here for help. Thanks!

Define S, R5, 450D, H440, Noctis 450, S340.

Enthoo Pro is Full tower so wouldn't fit your needs.

I use the Corsair Vengeance C70 and I like it. Mine have an extended ATX mobo in it so I know it can take it and you can get the case for a little bit over $100 USD brand new.


Your saying what I put here will be under my posts?

Pretty much this. Nailed it right on the head.

OP, these are pretty much everything anyone else is going to say.

So Corsair isn't a viable option? 

No one said it wasn't.

ommission != rejection.

i think the 230t is a great case but gets beat by the s340 and is only relevant in the $65 market

Cooler Master do some nice cases out there. Not sure which ones you'd be interested in off the top of my head though.

The Define series is really getting long in the tooth tbh. So much flexing on the chassis.

No, I didn't say that.

I am not a corsair fan, but their products are still fine AFAIK.

And people think Corsair is overrated when most people usually buy NZXT/Fractal Design cases........

Everyone loves/doesn't totally hate corsair. Don't get your knickers in a twist because one person didn't include them in their list.

If you want a cheap case, not fussed about cooling and dont care about how it looks get a Coolermaster Elite 355U

Well unless they are discontinued

Edit: it has no front panel USB3.0 and the Blue Power light is bright as hell

But good point.
