Case Help

Hi everyone, building my first machine so looking for info on cases or possible problems with my front runners at the moment.

Looking to use a SilverStone SST-RL06WS-GP - Red Line Midi Tower since it's got a bit of flexibility in relation cooling options (looking to go air cooled first but move to AIOs later on) and lay out.

I also like the Cougar Panzer line and Corsair's steel cases.

Brand spanking new to all of this so any help is welcomed!

Ha I feel that's a bit of a jab there! Not a fan of the angled look on the front mesh.

Define C is the closed front panel with side vents version. Quieter with decent cooling, vs louder but great cooling.

Is the R6 in your budget or aesthetics parameters?  

I would like a mesh front for airflow to be honest

I like the Enthoo but is a bit more expensive than what I would pay for the Silverstone. Would it be worth it? BTW cheers for the Ireland link!

I personally think build quality in the Enthoo Pro M TG is better. The only reason that the RL06 is so widely regarded as "Best in class airflow" is because it comes with 4 fans by default and the dust filters aernt super restrictive (A problem found in some cases like the Lian Li PC-O11 Air). That is simply my somewhat biased opinion, but either case would serve you well. Though, the Enthoo Pro M TG would give you more better support for watercooling due to having multiple spots for radiators.
