This could go into the  air cooling category, but whatever.... I am in "love" with the corsair 750D, but I am also an airflow maniac, and the 750D can lack at that so I might not purchase it because of it (unless you give me some suggestions to improve its airflow :D) so i am in search of a different one for under 100 €... any suggestions ?

Thats a test bench, using that for a case would be foolish. A good airflow optimized case is the Cooler master HAF X, althought a bit dated.

Not really, unless your PC is in a hazardous house with pets or small children there is nothing about it that would be foolish.

Airflow is overrated imo.You should go with the 750D if you like it.

 

That being said, i vote for NZXT S340. No HDD cages in the front=excellent airflow.

yes

corsair air 540 is awesome and if you want to increase airflow n the 750d than i would take the drive cages out to acsess the two 120mm fan mounts that are hidden by them

Erh, not when you have a restrictive front panel, like one that is completely closed... like on the S340.

I'd buy the Enthoo Pro over a 750D cause it's essentially a better case for less money, the Air 540 is a great air cooling case though.

yeah, but lets assume i make a watercooling loop in the future, the 750D is much better at that

"Much" better, no... but a little yeah. In all honesty though, the Enthoo Pro already has great watercooling support for a price that is just so much better. But I'm sorry if you just made this thread to hear us say "Just go with the 750D". I know how it is to really like a case, but if it's not practical for your use, then you shouldn't get it tbh.

well that is exactly the situation that I mentioned, so obviously for you that won't work. Which is unfortunate as it really is the best way to maximize airflow hopefully you will find the case that suits you.

Enthoo pro gets my vote. Easily one of the better cases I've owned.
