    QOTW: Which chassis are you using?

    And do you tend to keep the same case between builds?

    The original Coolermaster Cosmos 1000. Beast of a case but not the best airflow.

    Re: QOTW: Which chassis are you using?

    On my second build using a CoolerMaster 690, often seem to end up with their cases for friends builds too.

    Re: QOTW: Which chassis are you using?

    Corsair Obsidian 550D. Had it since my last (and current) build ...so for the past 6.5 years or so. Somehow, I haven't managed to remove the protective plastic on the front. The case itself is pretty good. Has to be the quietest build so far, and a lot of it is down to the case.

    A Fractal Design Define R5, which I've had for three years and I am likely to be using for many more.

    Re: QOTW: Which chassis are you using?

    My main PC is in a Coolermaster 690 (I think the II model) and I plan to keep the same case when I next rebuild.

    My HTPC is in a Coolermaster Elite 130

    My main legacy PC is in an old (but custom-painted) AT mini-tower that started life as an ESCOM 486.

    My other legacy PC is built in a Chieftec Scorpio.

    Everything else is built into cheap generic cases that I've picked up over the years.

    I would rather go with which ones I do not use... any without a single 5 1/4 front slot for DVD/Blu-Ray

    Re: QOTW: Which chassis are you using?

    InWin 901, still on it's first build, though the GPU has changed a number of times.

    Before that I had a SilverStone TJ09 which has been through a bunch of builds. Loved that so much it's still in the loft, but no need of a case that big these days.

    My HTPC is a CoolerMaster CM260 which is nasty to work on, but I've never since seen a nice looking replacement with the right combination of features.

    Edit - oh and a CoolerMaster Elite 130 for a water-cooled eGPU, but I mostly don't use that anymore.

    And a Dan A4 that I've never built up (!). I think that might be destined for a 3700X build this summer. If only graphics cards were a sensible price...

    Re: QOTW: Which chassis are you using?

    Current build is NZXT H440 Razer edition. i have used this for a couple of builds but going forward i will not. as it is really too large.i got it since i had gotten the NZXT X61 kraken water cooler and i wanted a case that would be built with this cooler in mind. there is too much wasted space in it since the new tech of M.2 drives and affordable NAS systems there is no need for 3.5 drive bays. i will be downsizing to a Micro ATX form factor with 2 M.2 slots and the HYPER M.2 X16 CARD V2 expansion card to add more M.2 drives as needed
