    So im doing my second build and ive got my thinking down to 4 cases I might want to use, problem is as far as looks I like them pretty much all the same and I think theyre all suitable for the build im planning (mid spec gaming system with water cooled cpu and 2 times graphics cards in crossfire), all 4 have more then enough room to support my setup with good airflow and cooling.

    So I was just wondering if anyone here had used any of the cases in question and had any bad experiences, unforseen problems with any of them that may help me to make up my mind?

    Other then that, what would you pick? (based on features not looks obv as thats a personal thing)

    heres the cases in question

    the Antec Dark Fleet DF-85 Antec Dark Fleet DF-85 Case | Ebuyer.com

    Coolermaster storm trooper CM Storm Trooper Case | Ebuyer.com

    Coolermaster storm enforcer CM Storm Enforcer Case with Coolermaster 650W GX P...

    Inwin dragonrider gaming case InWin Dragon Rider Gaming Case | Ebuyer.com

    Pick your top two and read two or three reviews for each from different sites. Usually, you'll find most of the same thigns, but sometimes a different site might pick up on one or two things the other sites did not. Also, if multiple sites mention the same issue(s) during installation, you might want to reconsider if it's going to be a problem for you as well.

    i find cases always come down to personal pref

    if it was me i would just have a number for each case and roll a 4 side dice then be happy with the result

    oh yeah its all down to personal choice but my ive made my choice thats why ive gotten it down to these 4, just wanted to know if anyone had built ne systems using any of these and if they experienced any problems etc to maybe help me make up my mind which one to buy, there all very similar to be honest even in price range so trying to find out if any of them are notorius for any issues that may not have been covered by basic reviews.

    Storm trooper is absolutly huge in the flesh. It looks bigger than the Antec 1200 although I haven't seen them side by side. it wil be amazing at keeping everything cool. Just be careful what power supply and motherboard you use, as a lot of power supplies won't have cables that are long enough and you may need to budget for extension cables mainly the 24pin and the CPU 4/8 pin connector too.

    Storm trooper would be my first choice followed by the Dark Fleet.
