I want a new case for my computer, just dont know what to get me.

Looking for something 'different'.

I really like something like the antec 902 (FEATURE wise; loads of big fans, removeable hard drive cages, plenty of HDD cooling (each 3.5" hdd get a 5.25" enclosure), easy cable management, inside all nice and black, clear side panel, etc etc), I just despise the looks of it!

Ummm, also, I would like something with a fair bit of room to fit large graphics cards in, but nothing big (like nothing too much bigger than a normal atx. The smaller the better!)

I also got a front panel touch LCD that goes over 2 5.25" slots. So while I wouldnt mind a front door, I would also like to see/access that.

LMK what you's think :D

Is the HAF 932 too big? It has tons of room for graphics cards, great cable management, very roomy, lots of airflow, the list goes on. However, if it's too big the Lian Li Lancool PC-K62 is a good choice, although I would rather have the sheer size and airflow of the HAF.

Yeah see dont mind the features, it just looks too standard.

I don't mind the 932/922 (prefer 922 due to size) but to me it's just ugly :ohwell:

Looks-wise I really don't like the HAF either, I prefer the clean styling of a Lian-Li (I have a Rocketfish for this purpose), but I thought I would throw the HAF out the because it is pretty popular with about 90% of the PC enthusiast community. What about the NZXT Tempest? It's cheaper than the Antec, deeper (more room for graphics cards), I think it has better cable management, I like the looks, and the airflow is great.

An Antec 900 2 perhaps nice size and plenty of room for a decent rig.

+1 to this case. It's a badass mother! Call your local Microcenter and ask the price, I picked it up for $229 :cool:

Thx for all the suggestions.

Hmm see everything posted so far are GREAT for features, but they just look the same. Like, they all remind me of just a box haha.

I probably should of mentioned, the case is actually sitting on top of the desk near the screen, and its pretty much in the middle of the room, so it needs to stand out. If I were building something that would sit on the floor or hidden away, I would jump on any of the above options.

To give some point of views, I looked at something like the NZXT Lexa. It just looks so different to most cases, and to me looks pretty good. But, the reason I wouldn't get something like that is because the internals are just too simple, and its like a half assed effort on some areas of the case (like a single, 80mm case fan up top).

Size wise, my current soprano is good for size, would like a bit more GFX card area but not a big hassle.

Was actually considering the Armor MX. Shame those front flaps obstruct the front panels. :(

DO NOT GET THE LEXA
I have had the extremely regrettable experience of attempting to build a computer in the Lexa. The inside is very cramped, the front plastic part is very fragile, although it looks good in pictures it looks terrible real life, airflow is limited and cable management is non-existent. If you want something very different, you may wish to consider a tech station such as the Antec Skeleton

NZXT tempest is like the A900, but cheaper has 2 fans in the ceiling instead of one big one.

Ahhaha thanks for the heads up.

Yeah I have read a fair bit about that, which is another reason I strayed away from it.

And yeah, was looking at the skeletion, just wouldnt suit my room. Also the dust would probably kill me :p

EDIT: Yes I know I am being very fussy :D. But hey, this is the thing that sits next to me for the better part of almost every day! At least I don't have a budget :cool:

I think the PC-P50 might be a great case for you, 2x140mm fans in the top, great looks, and some of the best features on the market. All built with Lian-Li quality :)

that said the the PC7FW as suggested earlier is a wonderful case as well.

You like the haf 922 for the internals but want a better look? Then do what I did and go for the cm storm sniper. I don't know if u get the black edition there, but if u don't spray painting the internals black is like a days job and it just looks plain sexy once done. It has great space as its the same as a haf 922 inside, comes with a fan controller for 5 fans as well as an led on/off and has a removable hdd drive if u want more sirflow or want to plonk a 240 rad down there. Has a good number of fans as well and unlike the haf u get a nice mesh window with fan filter, or u can go for the acrylic side panel. Best of all cable management is superb.

Thanks again for all the replies :)

I've gone through all the suggestions made (half which I had never seen till now!) and would personally go for either the
Red PC-P50R (reason I didnt buy it straight away was front is a little plain + everything in the room is blue, not sure how red would go)
or the antec skeleton (didnt actually know it fit full ATX boards haha...this dust is the only thing setting me back from it).
