    Question Case Recommendation

    I am looking at buying a new case. Am after something that looks ok from the outside and preferably takes 120mm fans (but that isn't important)

    Have been looking at Chieftec cases as ebuyer.co.uk has them cheap as chips at the minute. I have a Lian Li PC7 at the minute and for the most part its too noisy as the aluminium walls are too thin (for my liking) (In fact the case vibrates if I fasten the sides on with thumbscrews )

    I will probably mod any case I get to take a 120mm side intake fan and possibly a 120mm blow hole in the roof any way, would just be nice if the front intake and exhaust fans were 120mm.

    cheers

    PS case windows aren't important either

    I have a PC60 and have the 4 standard fans (80mm), 80mm CPU fan, and gfx+nb fans. The case is quiet and does rattle/vibrates at all.

    Are you sure that one of the fans is not broken? If there is a broken/chipped fin that would account of sound and vibration.

    Aside from that cheiftec make good cases.

    The new Thermaltake LanMOTO cases look schweet IMO, and come with 2 120mm fans (intake and outtake) and a 80mm side fan. You have to be into the whole xaser style though.

    I have an antec amg180 which looks pretty cool, has loads of space and runs nice and cool too with 3 80mm fans fitted as standard and space for 2 more. At around £38 for one without a PSU (you can get one with if you like) not hard on the wallet either.
