Cases?

  1. 1. Which case? (Lots of controversy)

    • S340 Elite
      1
    • P400S TG
      7


Hi guys, I am looking for a good case under $100 as the title says and below is my wishlist.

1. Quiet

2. Good airflow and ventilation to keep cool

3. Look decently nice on the outside

4. Doesn't have to have tempered glass, but definitely no acrylic windows. But #1 and #2 are more important (Rather have quiet and better ventilation that tempered glass)

 

Thanks! :)

The components you select will have a bigger impact on sound than the case itself.

If that's your goal, just go with a super cheap case, and buy a quiet fan.

As for airflow, most cases are fine. It'll be pretty uncommon if you're using newer components to have a hot system.

I've been looking at Be Quiet! cases, but they are pretty expensive. I want sound dampening foam or something. Cuz, if I get quiet  components then I can't overclock as much/run heavier loads.

The Phanteks p400 will be superior for air flow versus the NZXT S340. If it was me I'd consider the new Fractal Design Meshify though, it's my new favorite case and my CoffeeLake build will be going into it. https://pcpartpicker.com/product/rPPzK8/fractal-design-define-c-tg-atx-mid-tower-case-fd-ca-def-c-bk-tg

Opinions on the 460X?

I have it, and TBH while it looks really nice, the cable management is a nightmare and a half, so I wouldn't recommend it. would you?

Also some cheaper Antec cases have sound deadening foam as well. Or, you know, save some money and add it yourself. It's not expensive.

I considered fanless heatsink but.. limits performance. And are the Dark Rock 3 and other be quiet! cpu coolers quiet?

That being said I love my Thermaltake Suppressor F31 TG for its own reasons, as I need more hard drive space and it has room for lots behind the motherboard tray that personally is a huge bonus, and it is a quiet case, but if you want the PSU shroud you have to order it separately form Thermaltake website.

I considered fanless heatsink but.. limits performance. And are the Dark Rock 3 and other be quiet! cpu coolers quiet?

Air coolers in general are pretty quiet. But you know what makes them quiet? The fans. Just like I said in my earlier post. Which are easily changed out.

Opinions on the 460X?

I have it, and TBH while it looks really nice, the cable management is a nightmare and a half, so I wouldn't recommend it. would you?

IDK, cable management is a definitely horrible, but I made custom cables so they at least look nice. I would 100% buy it again.

Very true. I have 3x 2.5" round the back, and I will probably get an M.2. If you had the drive cage it would be just about impossible. Especially with watercooling.

I don't really want the tempered glass because its going under my desk so not really visible. Just want quiet mostly.

The original Define C also comes in acrylic or solid side panel as well! It's $70, has sound dampening foam and has better airflow than both the P400 and S340

I really like the Phanteks enthoo pro m, airflow seems to be good and it has a great view inside, has rubber gromets as well. Im not a huge fan of the cable slot underneath the mobo but that might just be my mobo, the case is the one in my profile pic. One complaint is the plastic on the front feels slightly cheap, like, if it got hit hard its gonna crack or break.

P400(s) is better than S340 but since silence is your main objective and side window is irrelevant, get a Fractal case. Define S, Define C, or Meshify C. You might even be able to find a Define R5 for about $100.
