Just bought a 900D, it's shipping direct from Corsair now. I'm really excited about it. What are your favorite cases, /g/ents?
Smaller cases than that.
Nice case and good for you on the better price. I know that feel, will get an Asus pb287q for half price.
I regret buying a full tower, however. Now I want a midi tower, either R5 or the corsair air something something cube case.
I was going to buy one of those when I was planning on building an open-loop watercooling system. The thing's xbox hueg. Buying that case and then not building a watercooling system into it is rather daft. Well, unless you're a serious-business IT type who needs something that can fit a big array of hard drives and one of those 12"x13" extended-ATX dual-socket mobos.
I have a black Vengeance C70, I'm happy with it. Enough room but not too huge, a bit of rice but not too much, good cooling, convenient handles.
I fucking hate my case, dusty as all hell (I modded some freaking dust filters onto it to make it acceptable), looks retarded, the mobo cutout is not aligned properly and thereby completely useless, stock fans are shit, airflow and overall cooling is okay but not good enough for a full tower, it looks retarded, pieces of it broke off just after 2 builds, cable management is not ideal, build quality in general is pretty shit and it looks retarded.....
I can't really justify a new case, but I hate it so much. What would be a good full tower with clean aesthetics, maybe a bit of sound dampening and REALLY good airflow? It needs to keep 2 R9 290s in CF cool (top card is currently sitting at 86°C while being pretty loud) and fit a noctua NH-D 14.
forgot the pic.
Forgot to post my case. Done the job but am bored with it now.
Ive thought about that as a server case since it has so many drive bay options. I think theres like 15 in all, or 18, cant remember if you can put a bay to the left of the upper one.
But the define r4/r5 is tempting for all dat noise dampening
Love my scratched up phantom 410, its just like muh brushed metl
if I went itx i think i would get this instead.
Owned some pretty good cases. Some real popular ones. My current one is my favorite one to date is my current. Which is the In Win 901. A few others for random rating sake:
>Lian Li PC-Q03B
This is my case. A lot of people might think it's too small but my hands were just the right size to route cables and it was able to fit an ATX mobo in there. It's actually got pretty decent airflow now. The only problem is the dust, since I put 5 fans in there, not counting the push-pull config.
>full size GPU
>2 slots for storage, SSD and a HDD
>full size cpu cooler
>doesn't look like ass, ignoring the badge
>doing all this while not being xbox hUEG
how the fuck did I even miss this
It's like $35 too
I like mine. It's cheap and beautiful.
Actually it looks like bane.
i just bought a rosewill thor. it seems pretty cool.
For a nice dual/triple GPU watercooled setup I'd pick the Enthoo Primo, but for quad-GPU with watercooling the 900D is really the only option.
I currently have a nice mITX APU build in a Node 304. It's small and unassuming and makes almost no noise, but it does everything I need it to.
Premium air cooling.
Solid aluminum construction.
there is no price limit in OP's post. stop being poor.
>being this far up corsair's asshole
Fuck, I thought this was a different thread. Anyway, Caselabs is great if you're throwing money at a quad GPU + dedicated PhysX with everything under water, but for the average build it's more than overkill.
i have bought corsair products on a number of occasions. there are better choices 9/10 if you cough up a few more shekels (sometimes cheaper cause you're not paying for the gaymen branding)
oh it's absolutely overkill for the majority of users. but when you're going full custom, there is none better. cheers mate
I've got a corsair 300R
It's pretty nice, I guess. I'd recommend it for noob builders if you can get one on sale. It's got a bunch of little niggly drawbacks though, too many to recommend to a serious builder. The front panel and the bottom PSU intake have air filters, but none of the other fan slots do, and to clean the front one you have to take the front panel off (which requires removing the optical drive if you have one) and then taking it apart to get the dust filter out of the grille. The bottom air intake is positioned forward where it would fit a long high-power PSU, but a regular PSU's air intake is over half covered by the intake filter housing.
On the other hand, it's a big, easy case to build in, it has built-in standoffs, plenty of cable management space, good access to the CPU cooler backplate, and its pretty sharp if you're into the industrial aesthetic.
this seems like the right thread to ask...
I wanna build a respectable gaming PC (my first) and I have a lot of the "knowhow" (I'm an IET student) but I'm not so sure about the cases....
I want something small enough to fit nicely in a living room setting, next to a TV (to replace the traditional console's position) and be somewhat mobile, but also be large enough to accommodate a decent sized closed-loop liquid cooling circuit and a respectable motherboard, GPU, power supply and the associated cables. Any suggestions?
pic related: what I'm currently considering.
Had a Hadron but couldn't fit my newest gpu so went with a Corsair 250D.
One of the best aircooling with sturdy construction. The only reason I can think of people wouldn't want to use one is if they needed a smaller case for a dorm room or LAN parties.
I bought this for my first build. Did I do good? I'll be honest I have no idea what to look for and I just thought it was cool
