Sleek Case?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So at first, I wanted to go with an S340Elite from NZXT, but a guy told me it wouldn't handle the Heat from the 1080ti and a Coffe Lake CPU, so I decided to go with an H700i. 

But because of that smart device that makes the case 200$, and doesn't (apparently) even support Aer Fans AND RGB Strips together, that was not good too.

So now I don't know what I should use. I want something minimalistic, maybe some RGB, but can't find any cases.

Any recommendations, or should I just buy another NZXT Hue+?

 

H700i: (something like that maybe)

Why would an S340 not be able to handle a Coffee Lake CPU and 1080 Ti? Expensive case =/= good airflow.

 

If you're worried and want a case that looks sleek with good airflow, I'd say buy an Enthoo Pro M.

Because the airflow is simply not enough fore the amount of heat those components pump out. 

However I did not suggest the next logical step was to get a $200 case, as the Enthoo Pro M TG and Meshify C are the two cases I recommend in this instance.
