Antec 300 ,excellent case ,i use 1 for my 2nd rig along with some extra fans and its great,very cool.

its also cheap compared to some of the top end cases ,around £50 ,is well made and feels like its worth a lot more than it is.

Cooler Master Elite 330, it's a hell of a lot less than £100 but it's still a lovely case with plenty of airflow.

This is a good one. Ultra M998 100% aluminum and its far cheaper than 100 Euro also. Hell it stays cooler than most 200 dollar cases as well. Plus the "power bar" makes for a VERY clean case.

Yeah I would go for the HAF932, great case apparently, you can get it for £90 delivered from scan:

http://www.scan.co.uk/product.aspx?ProductId=26695

It's got 3 230mm fans (quiet, move a lot of air), looks pretty damn good (imo), and the build quality is excellent (I have heard). I very much doubt you will get a better case for the price.

The ultra version isnt actually available in the uk, however the case is available under the AKASA brand for £88, along with 2 other variations here and here (both over £100 unfortunately)

These are also very good value, thick aluminium ftw!

hi at the moment ive got a raidmax sagitta case and i dont like it as its loud and feels cheap http://img120.imageshack.us/img120/4361/sagittablackbigkt2.jpg

Hey you think the Sagitta feels cheap I've got a Raidmax Sagittarius [Sagitta 2]
and I think the price is lower than the Sagitta. Anyway the sagittarius is not quite what I expected when I got it, it was a lot smaller than normal thermaltake cases [both my brothers have thermaltake] and not really the best quality. I still enjoy it though it's much better than the old stock case I had.


So why not try something like the Thermaltake Armor???
