    Subscribed. Might get a new case with tax return. Like the NZXT Phantom 410 Gunmetal Edition but still totally undecided.

    Right now I'm using Corsair 600T white. But it is far from perfect.

    [​IMG]

    600T is too expensive, too bulky and too heavy. Fan controller is also crap.
    My ideal case should be compact and functional. I prefer Lian Li a05FN, even though I've never use one.

    I guess the grass next door is always greener, right?

    Ung, I was so picky and anal about my 600T's imperfections and design issues I just had to return it. One of those I really wanted to like it but just couldn't situations. I even had a replacement inspected and sent directly from corsiar warehouse after talking with rep, but I still wasn't happy

    Most cases look like suitcase luggage.

    Now try not to get too mad at me because it's just MY opinion. It doesn't reflect YOUR opinion at all, it's mine. And I felt I wanted to share MY opinion. You don't have to disagree or agree unless you want to. It's all cool. But I'd like to hear some other opinions on MY opinion...rofl.

    And no I didn't smoke anything this morning, I am just coming off a week long flu-thing and I might agree I may be screwed up in the head right now. Now??
    :roll:


    Yea, I said it...Most computer cases look like suitcase luggage. Or some strange refridgerator from 1948. Or even a de-humidifier like I have in my basement.
    Hey, I have a saxaphone case that looks like it could be a computer.
    Now white color is becoming hot. Lol...soon to re-appear will be IBM cream colored or BEIGE like the 1988 IBM 8088.


    Give me a CoolerMaster HAF 12 / 22 / 32 anyday over ALL this other stuff.

    Ok, have a nice day while you chaw on that there opinion of mine.

    :laugh:

    I get what you're meaning but then you say that cases have neon light and light bars. Those are getting rarer. Fractal Design made a bit of a splash (and yes I know the Antec P120 P180 has the same styling and came out years before but that never got very popular) so now they look more sleek. The only case that looks like old fridges in this thread is probably that Alienware case. Fractal Design for instance looks like modern fridges. Go back six years and then you can talk about neon lights and outragous designs.

    Oh, and that offwhite you're talking about is biege, the color that defined PC's for decades. :p

    it's the same as Cosmic Latte,

    You get what I'm meaning? Hahaha....even I don't get what I'm meaning.

    Thanks for the response though and keep on chawing!.

    Looks wise, I really like my Lian Li V1200B plus, but it does suck at cable management and it's perforated front and back are terrible when it comes to dust getting in it.

    Mine was very affordable, and as for the H100, unless you rig it in the ODD bays, near impossible;)

    Antec Mini P180. Perfect size, very solid, sound insulation, great and clean air cooling, very classy exterior design. It's a shame they discontinued it. I've been thinking about using it for my dorm room rebuild in a few months, if I can get my hands on one.

    Yep, I loved mine dearly until I saw the HAF XB release and then we had to part ways after over 3 years....

    Aerocool Qx-2000 from their PGS serie. A nice gaming cube. I own it now but I shitted the front usb ports. Need to find one like that over ebay but my mobo only takes HD audio plugs.
