    Wink Which new case

    Been toying with replacing my aging Antec 900 for a while, and since GPU is sorted I felt I may look into case when paid in a months time *pushes luck with gf now*

    I fancy something like the Li-Lan cases but with good cooling for a OC'd system, BFG 8800GTS and all my other stuff you get in case.

    Curious what is the best from the rubbish out there you chaps know your stuff so come impress me some more

    Re: Which new case

    i dont think there is anything wrong with the antec 900 tbh mate its a damned good case, if yours is in good nick i may swipe it off you! (even though i did just rewire the cables in mine the other day )

    If you really do wanna case change then my personal favourites are

    Coolermaster Cosmos


    Antec P182

    Although there are a few around that look pretty nice...

    Re: Which new case

    If you are looking for an alternative to a traditional computer case then take a look at the Thermaltake Mozart TX. It has loads of room and excellent cooling. It is a monster tho:

    Re: Which new case

    I have taken a shine to the two following cases.

    Thermaltake VA8003SWA Aluminium Armour Super Tower - Silver

    Thermaltake VA8003SWA Aluminium Armour Super Tower

    Which looks great, well built and seems to have good cooling.

    And this

    Coolermaster Stacker 830 Evolution - Nvidia Special Edition (No PSU)

    The Nvidia Coolermaster Stacker.

    OK if you like sitting next to a wind tunnel I s'pose.

    Why not wait for the new Antec 1200?

    Re: Which new case

    Depends what your budget is I guess. Not to mention space considerations. I've got a Thermaltake Kandalf, it's got great cooling, not quite as pricey as the top range stuff and pretty well built. Although the aesthetics are somewhat subjective. If you're going for the high end, of course there's Lian Li (like the A71 or V series) and Silverstone are worth a look (I see rave reviews about the TJ07...costs 200 quid though!)

    Re: Which new case

    Well in that case I'd go for either the Thermaltake Kandalf or Armour if you like the look of them. That said I don't have any experience with the Stacker. Both cases are highly regarded though.
