    New Case needed

    Can someone recommend a good Alu case, Midi, that has a front door? Thanks

    Eclipse 62 or the Mirage.. personally I'd go with the Eclipse as its by far the most practical, spacious, not too flashy and just plain stylish case ever made..

    After I've moved to the Eclipse, the Thermaltake Tsunami looks pale in comparison..

    Eclipse 62
    Mirage 62
    Thermaltake Tsunami

    you could also go for the Coolermaster Wavemaster or the slightly cheaper option, the Coolermaster Cavalier

    I would recommend the Cavalier, as its nice and cheap or the Eclipse as its a very stylish case (not that the cavalier isn't)

    I would undoubtedly get either a Silverstone or a Lian Li

    Other case experiences have not been so positive

    I vote the Eclipse. It's a quality case, and I love it, would take a lot of persuading to get something different.

    Cases are a matter of personal preference however...

    I was tempted by the Aurora, until one day I figured that the front makes it look like robocop with a very very long forehead... .. the love just went downhill from there..

    Akasa Eclipse FTW..

    New lian li cases are not too good on the cooling front as they have made it very complicated.

    Mirage is best for what you are after IMHO - probably the best case a cooling you can get.

    The wave master is like 3 years old now and therefore its cooling method is out of date now.
