    New PC Build

    Hi All.

    I am new to the forums. I am in the process of creating a shopping list to build a new rig.

    On the component level I am fine however the only issue that I am currently having is deciding on an asthetically pleasing full tower case.

    Do you have any recomendations?

    - The case must look good.
    - Must have good air flow.
    - Must have room for a top mounted double water cooler and fans (Not using both PUSH/PULL)
    - Atleast 3x 5.25 bays

    Currently I have been looking at the

    1. NZXT 820 Phantom
    2. Corsair 780T (Lacks 3x 5.25)
    3. Coolermaster HAF X V2

    How often do case manufacturers release new cases?

    Are there any websites for up and coming new pc cases?

    Thanks in advance

    Fractal R5 ?
    Society's to blame,
    Or possibly Atari.

    I'd totally recommend NZXT cases. Excellent build quality and airflow options. Been using them for PC builds for friends

    Thanks for the replies. I also like the NZXT cases but heard the Gun Metal and White Cases scratch easily. The Fractal R5 is also a nice case but lacks sex appeal. I'm holding out till the end of March until I build my rig so I am hoping there will be some new comers to market. I want this case to last me atleast 5+ years.

    Lian-Li all the way!

    I always wanted a Lian-Li case but the cost always kept me away.

    There are quite a few available under £100 now and I have to say they really are worth it.

    100% brushed Aluminium and hand finished make it so easy to work with and when you have to use any other case you can really feel the difference.

    I talked my friend into buying one and he thinks the same, used to have a coolermaster plastic thing with the mesh front and steel chassis. Aluminium is so much nicer!
