after im looking for some pc case, i found 3 cases that i like:
a. CM STORM ENFORCER
b. ZALMAN Z11 PLUS
c. CORSAIR CARBIDE 500R

which one should i chose?
Zalman is a very eye chatchy case with that beautiful led and cheaper than corsair.
Enforcer is quiet close at price with zalman with his bulky look case and masculine
But Corsait sure have a big deal with 5 fan included in the package and zalman have it too.
But some people said that Corsair has bigger area than zalman with better fan.

So, which case should i choose, this is the only problem i had since i decide to build my own PC :)

The only one I could see myself personally using is the Corsair, I'd sooner get either an NZXT Phantom or a Fractal Design R4 though.

Bigger area yes, not sure about the fans though, maybe because of the fan controller option and the toggle LED switch feature. 200mm fan on the side panel as well.

I'd go with the Corsair, very good looking case there.

Personally (minus the Corsair title), I'd go for the Corsair 500R. I like the aesthetics and the overall ID of the case. I guess I like the simple look with a lot of flexibility in cooling set up variations... that's just me :)
