Ok, my P180 is just way too heavy to continue taking to LANs, it really hurts! So I need something much lighter.
- Net:31.00lb / 14.00kg
- Gross: 36.00lb / 16.33kg
I'm assuming (maybe wrongly) these are defined as without a system and with a system? That's ripped straight from Antec's website btw:
I also would like handles and for it to look good. That new coolermaster cosmos looks right, looks easy to carry - but weighs practically the same!!
I like the look of the lian li pc 7 (and all it's variants), but there's so many lian lis I'm not sure which one is the right / best one. I'm not planning on watercooling, because I can't afford it, vbut I want it to be quitely aircooled. So large slow rotating 120s are great. My PSU doesn't act as an exhaust - Antec Neo HE 550 - it's got 2 80mm fans but they're used for cooling the unit down (it does take air from inside the case), but it's not got high CFM and so that also needs to be taken into consideration.
Bear in mind, I'm small and want to be able to carry it! I've got 4 hard drives in at the moment although this could change. Looking nice is a plus but functionality is more important to me atm.
I thought about posting this in the Lian Li forum for some expert advice on different models, but it appears there are no mods there? And anyway, I'm not closing my eyes to other manufacturers. Want something quite light and nice. Something that's easy!
Budget no more than £120 but less is better!
