I'm looking to upgrade my pc case due to shitty airflow and overheating with my current one (Kolink K3 Mid Tower) --> It only supports 2 fans: 1x 92mm, 1x 120mm, which does not manage to keep GPU under 80C when running minecraft + a few background things... (the GPU isn't the greatest but case upgrade should make the temp alot better)

Any Case recommendations which would fit the following and isn't massive and has preinstalled case fans:

 

Motherboard: Gigabyte B450M DS3H

GPU: AMD rx590

CPU: Ryzen 5 3600

RAM: 2x16GB (dunno specific specs)
1x 1TB SSD

Bronze power supply of some kind (prob. standard size)

 

Thanks in advance!

 

EDIT: budget: not more then £80, country: UK

I would like the case to show off a bit (RGB Fans and light strips etc...)

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

 

what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

 

What games or other software do you need to run?

Depends on your budget or color pereference. I would recommend the Fractal design meshify C black.

PM or DM me if you have any questions about audio or about your PC.

My PC specs & audio gear

CPU > Intel core i7 9700k, GPU > RTX 2070 8gb, RAM > Corsair Vengance 2x8gb 3000mhz, Motherboard > Z390 Gigabyte Aorus Pro Wifi, Storage > 1TB HDD & 2pcs of 500gb M2 SSDs, Cooling > H100I Corsair Platinum, PSU > Corsair RM750X V2

🎧Current Audio Setup For Gaming/Music🎧

DT 990 pro 250ohm W/Straight cable and Dekoni Elite Velour Pads 

Soundblaster AE-9 Soundcard

The T.bone SC400 XLR mic

Other peripherals

Keyboard > Razer Chroma v2 Orange Switches

Mouse > Cooler Master MM711, had a G502 HERO but was too heavy for my liking.

Why spend thousands on peripherals and your PC and forget one of the most important things... Audio.

Read this post if you want a "gaming" headset ;)

UK, not more then £80

Then probably the NR400 or NR600

A lot of the cheaper like name brand ones have closed off fronts, or there is a knock off meshify case


They used to be a bit cheaper I think.

Rosewill Cullinan. Great Tempered Glass on all sides, Mid-ATX tower with 4 preinstalled 1200MM fans and a fan controller. Great airflow and looks very nice - very easy to build in. They've several options in regards to fan colors or RGB. I've built multiple rigs with that at my shop for customers - I highly recommend.

That Rosewill case looks to be an American only deal, only at Newegg by the looks of it.  Buying a case from the US will be expensive with import duty, VAT and the shipping costs.

that a different case - but I actually just built one of those this week lol, w/ 7 green ring fans I absolutely loved it. Very easy to build in as well and looks awesome with that metal grill on front - great air flow in that one too

Those choked cases with tempered glass on every side are most likely just as bad as your current case.

 

Nr600 or 4000D airflow great choices. Phanteks p300a, p360a and p400a are nice too. Although for p300a you have to add at least one fan on front.
