Looking at Cases

GarageMan
 Share

I'm looking to replace my fractal design focus g for a case that has rubber grommets, a shroud, and dedicated ssd brackets, and currently I'm comparing the 275r, 460x, and 400d, and was looking for some opinions. As I believe myself to be impaired in cable management and my PSU has some bulky cables, (vs400) so that is my biggest goal here. Thanks for any input!

oh, that's a bit better, but still not good. would recommend replacing it, as vs in general is lower quality

Alright, I'll look into that. Any reccomendations on a 400/500w psu on the cheap?

pure power 11/10, cx(m), rmx, txm, masterwatt (non-lite, no pwm), and many more, look up the psu tier list down my sig, and get at least a tier c

The Corsair 450D is a bit of an older case. Still functional, but lacks the PSU shroud. 

 

Between the Corsair 275R and the 460X, I personally choose for the 460x for it's better airflow, and IMO better looks. The 275R is slightly smaller (being more space efficient) but has a bad Tempered glass mount design (making it a pain to get on and off)

 

If oyu want something that's Similar to your Focus G but a direct upgrade, I would look into the Meshify C or Enthoo Pro M TG. Both of these cases can be had for under $100, will function just like your Focus G and have great cable management.
