Pick best case

what do you all think is the best case for these parts?


been really into the storm stryker case, but just saw this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1t2h9E2LTUs and it looks a little bit empty when the guys all done. any other reccomendations? should i look at a mid tower instead? maybe the stryker would be good if i was doing like a full water cooling loop with sli/tri-sli gpu's but it looks just a little sad.

I would go with the haf 932. (it holds a place in my heart.) or you could look at the nzxt 820 that one is very good for water cooling. (Thats the "820" not the 810)

PS plz dont go tri sli your better off using 2 gpu's and a sound card than the 15 fps gain from a third card. Going from 90 fps to 110  is point less, most games won't take advantage of 3 gpus.

i would change

 PSU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817153136 (its dark gray)

monitor http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236175

-2ms responce better contrast

gpu (unless your doing Photoshop i dont think you can water cool this one tho) http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-video-card-fx795atdjc

sound card : buy one just not creative


I love the Cooler Master HAF XM there is a ton of room to work with


Going to agree with Pete on this one - Lots of room. Even with the bulk of uncleaned cables (I've been sloppy with the cable management.. Yet to bother) behind the mobo tray with SSD the panel still slides on with no issues lol

rosewill THOR v2 ($120-130)

atx full tower, fits up to xl-atx, 2 fron usb2, 2 usb3, esata, dual fan controllers. comes with 3 230mm fans and a rear 140. really quiet!!!!


If you want some minimalistic looks and silence, the Fractal Design Define R4 is perfect.

Air flow, air flow air flow. I cannot express enough my feelings for a case with great air flow. I have 2 Cooler Master Cases and both are the HAF series. My mid size case is the HAF 922. My full size case is the Advanced Blue Edition RC-932-KKN3-GP. The full sized case comes with Four Blue LED Fans-1x 230mm front fan, 1x 230mm top fan, 1x 230mm side fan, and 1x 140mm rear fan. You can add 1 more top fan as well as the 1 already installed. The larger fans can run slower yet produce excellent air movement. Here is the link to The Egg site.


This is the link to my build so you can see what I mean by tons of room and air flow. Hope this helps.
