Budget Airflow Case

I highly recommend the Silverstone Redline RL06 if your biggest concern are the airflow and budget.

The RL06 is the best budget airflow case, and it gives you better airflow than the Meshify C out of the box, and the RL06 is cheaper. RL06 is superior in thermal at under $100.

I want to get a good Airflow Case at a budget price. I was thinking about getting phanteks p350x or p400 also CM H500 but I'm still uncertain so I need help. Honestly don't want to spend over $100 on a case, not as yet at least.

It's not like super budget or anything, but I have the Corsair C70 for one of my builds at home and I've always thought it has fantastic airflow. Lots of mesh, dust filters, and places to mount fans.

Not sure what the price will be like in colonial money but it's usually around £100 here in the UK.

We reviewed SilverStone’s Redline 06 Pro back in May and, for the past six months, the RL06 has remained fully uncontested in its position atop our charts. The case is being kept around as a standard for our benchmarks, as its thermal performance is second-to-none in its stock state.

 

This performance is a combination of SilverStone’s tri-fan intake, thin metal mesh front panel, and mid-tower layout. The mid-tower layout keeps everything closer to the fans and exhaust, but the front mesh is where the case pulls ahead: Other mesh panel cases have tried and failed to outmatch the RL06 this year, and that’s largely because the Redline uses a mesh that’s not overly dense in its creation. The Redline 06 maintained a 47.8-degree CPU temperature in our CPU torture test, planting it firmly ahead of everything else. The next closest stock case was the Corsair 570X, so honorable mention there, with its three 1500RPM fans. The SilverStone RL06 Pro only gets beaten when we start adding $20 fans to the Meshify which, of course, would also be outdone if we replaced the RL06’s fans with $20 units. GPU temperatures have remained fully chart-topping in our torture tests, too, with a 47.1-degree read-out in the torture. The next closest was the Thermaltake View 71 at 48.7 degrees.

 

The case offers no frills, focuses on properly high airflow with its four total fans, and costs $70-$80 for the Pro version of the RL06, which we strongly recommend. Noise levels are decidedly unimpressive, but not insultingly loud. Airflow begets higher noise, in nearly all instances.
