PC Case for Secro

Post#1 » 12 Aug 2009, 16:06

getting sick of my lame case

Image

I want something more awesome, like an antec 900 hundred two

Image

Anyone got anymore options for me. Just want it to keep stuff cool, not be covered in LED's
and have decent amount of room inside and be black. don't really need side windows and crap.

any antec case is nice, i have the Antec 300, but it doesn't have as much room inside as the 900 and 1200 series, but its enough.

Its black, it has no window, it has plenty of ventilation/fans etc, its not overly huge, and i think its more of a minimalist design in the x00 series.

Hey, I like that one.


the Three Hundred has enough room for an NVIDIA 8800 series graphics card



They are same size as a GTX 280 yeah?


Also says optional fans for front and side , i guess that means it doesn't come with fans for the front

it fits my full length 9800gtx in it with room to spare, so you wont have an issue with full length gfx cards.

it comes with one fan in the top, one in the back and one blue led fan in the front, (all with speed controllers) with room for one more in the front and one on the side, so you get 3 fans with the case which is enough to cool it.

damn, those are some sweet cases.


I just like the simple ones better to be honest.

I'll have to think about which one to get. In no rush :)

I think your money is better spent on things other than an "awesome" case if the case you have does the job. EG an SSD. My philosophy is that I spend more time using the computer than looking at the case :)

It's still good.

ps. Antec are awesome cases for low low prices, only criticism is increased ventilation = increased dust build up

Yeah that's why i like the FT02, has filters on it's intakes that are easy to take out etc.
My antec case atm is too big for what's in it and i've bent edge on one of the panels accidently.
Just need something new :)

Probably get one of these as well

Slap it on the 285 GTX to stop it being so fucking noisy, play dragon age for 10 mins and it's running 87 degrees and about to launch out of the case.
