    Hey guys, I need some recommendations for a new PC case.

    Things it needs:

    High quality
    Quiet
    Good cooling
    Not over 180$ the lower the Better(maybe an exception)
    Can accommodate water cooling.

    I currently have a HAF 932 and am not happy with the damned thing.
    It has holes everywhere that let noise out and dust in, and the big fans have such a slow RPM they barley move any air.

    My modded Aspire X-Superalien case cooled better.

    help me out guys.

    Honestly if i were you i'd look at server cases. they often have minimal holes in them are usualy made of heavy steel and have tons of room inside for water cooling. if you look at the case i chose you can see why Broadway Com Corp R-900 Black thick Steel ATX Full...

    its as tall as an antec twelve hundred and about 4 - 6 inches longer so its alot roomier inside. i actually have a triple rad mounted at the very top of the thing and a d55 mounted right next to the motherboard above the video card fits perfectly.

    I like the looks of the Broadway, except it needs paint on the inside.

    If I were going for a CoolerMaster, I'd choose the Haf X

    I'm just biding my time until I get a 800D, or make my own.

    if you like the case "just how it is" then i would say go for it. its very large and roomy inside but has very little modding potential to it because of all the plastic on it.

    I just got an Antec 900 Two and it rocks. It has 2 water cooling holes and good fan control throughout the case.

    Is the Corsair 700D still on sale for $150 on Newegg?
