Best ATX case for high end build?

 Share

What would be the best atx case? My budget for the case is up to $130. Please don't suggest a huge case like the size of the 900d. I was already thinking of getting an matx case but since it's my first ever build I wanted to make it easier on myself. And it would be less of a hassle. I've been looking at the define r4, arc midi r2, and nzxt h440. Let me know which one is the best! (Doesn't have to be one of those 3) I will change the matx board to an atx one by the way.

Phanteks Enthoo Pro

NZXT H440 

Fractal Design Define R4 

Corsair 450D 

Corsair 760T 

 

Also, matx cases aren't really hard to build in...you may just have to think about something for a second before doing since there isn't an abundance of extra space (unless you get something like a Corsair 350D, which is basically an ATX sized case).

It's basically personal preference and the expansion abilities you need.

They all have different pros and cons.

Personally I love the look of the H440, so that gets my vote.

Since, this is your very first build, I would suggest the NZXT H440. It's one of my absolute favorite cases, and it is a pleasure to work in. Out of the three that you mentioned, that would definitely be my suggestion, as well as my suggestion in general. It's a great case for a first build.
