    I would like a case such as this one I described in my title, I would like it to be spacious and also have good cable management features (also a good amount of attachable slots for fans to help airflow)

    I am fitting a GTX 660ti in my next build.

    REAR, 1 X 120mm @ 1200rpm (included)
    TOP, 2 X 120/140mm
    BOTTOM, 1 x 120mm

    6 but cheers, looking very nice :)


    Hey, do you think I will have problems if I was to fit a "Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO (120mm)" in there? (for my cpu ofc)

    Actually, two in the front, two in the top, one in the back, one in the bottom, and one in the left side. So seven :)

    And it should fit your Hyper 212+ fine--I have a Source 210 that has a Xigmatek Gaia (very similar) inside :toast:

    oh, its just because its not mentioned on the specs (on the official website) thats odd


    if I were to buy additional fans, what would you advise? (best brand, but reasonably cheap, you guys have been a big help btw ty all)

    Ion and I are counting the fan mounts on our 210's to confirm the fan mounts.... mine is sitting a few feet away from me atm ;)

    I use the Rosewill or Cooler Master 1,200rpm 120mm fans- they are cheap and quiet (available in 4 packs too)- EDIT- see Ion's link :)

    I'm running some cheap generic Cooler Master and Rosewill fans in my systems. Something like 1500-2000 RPM is my preferred solution--above that they tend to be a bit noisy. Corsair has their fancy ~$20 fans, but I don't think that the benefit is worth it ;)

    Something like this is a bit on the slow side, but it's cheap, and you get four of them :toast:

    Sorry about the late reply. That's newegg, no region for the U.K! But thanks for all the responses.

    I went with the case and it looks lovely and I like it. :D

    Lets see as you don't really have any real criteria...

    Cable management depends on how patient YOU are building the computer. Any case can have neat management, even without any of those cable hole cutouts.

    Lots of fans...really? If I can cool overclocked SLI GTX 480 and X6 with 3 120mm case fans running below 800RPM (even when it's 35C indoors), you can too.

    But if you want a 300R, get a 300R. Personally as I replace all the fans/block out unused fan mounts/mesh/vents in my builds it doesn't matter what the stock fans are/how many they come with. But saying you want a 300R means a pretty tight budget, maybe look at something that has more fans from the factory if you want more fans... not that you need a lot :\
