I'm looking to upgrade my PC case, possibly, anyway, the two main things I'd want from the case is silence, and plenty of drive bays (5 ~ 7 wouldn't need more than 7. I currently have 2xSSD 2xHDD and I may get another drive) and preferably 1~2 optical drive bay slots.
I've been looking at something like the Be Quiet! Dark Base 900 Full Tower case, looks good, and it seems to have plenty of nice features, like a fan controller and a discrete 2.5" drive bay. In addition to that, the case also has two optical drive bays, which is ideal for me. But I'm not sure how good the case actually is, I mean I could watch a review, but a lot of reviews these days tend to try and sell the product 'cause of sponsors. I mean I don't see a great deal of reviews mention a lot of negative points.
Can you guys recommend anything?
I'm not going to be a fanboy to any brands, like I have done in the past, cause I've found that with the huge companies like Corsair, yeah the products aren't bad, but you can probably get a better deal for the same cost. best case I've had so far was an old NZXT case, can't remember the model or anything. I'm currently using the Corsair 200R and I was quite disappointed, I know it's a cheaper end case anyway, so I couldn't set expectations too high.
I also eventually plan on upgrading my internals too, but I think I'm going to wait till the next generation of products to come out. Do you guys think that sounds like a good idea? - I've currently got a fairly high spec system as it is, so it's not like I'm suffering with a low spec system or anything, it can run and do anything I throw at it to say the least. It's not like I need to upgrade any components yet.
=== EDIT ===
I'll also be upgrading the likes of my keyboard and mouse sometime very soon, could you guys give my input on keyboards. I currently have the corsair K70, with red switches, and I'm really disappointed in the whole 'mechanical keyboards are the best' thing. Yeah, it's not bad, but it's nothing to go nuts about in my personal opinion, I like the keyboard itself however, like the mechanical volume controller and the multimedia buttons. But you could get that with a good old membrane keyboard too.
Then as for my screen(s). I plan on upgrading my two 1080p monitors to an ultra-wide 4k monitor, but I'd use it at 1440p, would you guys say that's a good idea, or would you guys go more for the 2 monitor thing. I love having multiple monitors for work, but for gaming, I'm just not that kinda guy, I much prefer sing the 1 screen, the fact that there's a bezel in the way bugs the hell out of me, even if the bezel is tiny. So an ultrawide monitor sounds great for gaming, but I have no idea how good they'd be for productivity?
Anyone with an ultra wide monitor that's a productive PC user, please let me know how good they are for development and all sorts of work. I would imagine it's not that bad, but I don't actually know, hence why I'm asking.
