Thread: I'm looking a some cases and need an advice...

  1. #1

    I'm looking a some cases and need an advice...

    First time putting thought at my case... and i'm a bit confused... (and my budget isn't that high)
    The first case that i liked is the Raidmax Smilodon which is ok but use mostly 80mm fans (that are noisy and do nothing other then that) BUT the case can be opened which is very unique... here is a nice video:

    The second case which i liked (a bit above the budget but i guess she worth the money), is the Raidmax Sirius case... (sorry no video)
    it has gauges for temps, it uses mostly 120mm fans, but the case can't be opened like the smilodon...

    err... so what do you think about them? or maybe a better case at the budget (can't give the number since it's not relevant but the "sirius" is a bit above it)

    thanx for any reply...

    I really like that smilodon, except the name.. maybe you could put a smiley face aplique in the window..

    If those are your two options, I'd go with the smilodon.. The money you save can go towards putting a 120 mm fan in the back/window/where ever you want it..

    for me, the rear and back fan is a must... no matter what case I'll buy.
    I wanter to add a few more choices...
    Raidmax X1 (i think they all come with a crappy psu)

    Sunbeam Transformer (Full tower!!!)

    Cooler master centurion 530

    Gigabyte triton/poseidon



    Decisions decisions...
    :wink:

    The most Important things are 120mm fans (or at least options) and build quality,
    As you see I'm into appearance and some nice features... (and still want a low price... am I asking for too much?)

    No!! You're not asking to much, just keep looking and you'll find what you are wanting. If there is anything that I have learned from this site, just be patient and keep looking along with the people here and you'll get what you are needing or wanting. Hang in there and Happy Modding to ya.

    Here is a case that I bought for my brother which has 120mm fans for front, side and rear. It comes with the front and side fans. It's tool less and has a door that closes by magnets. It does have very good ventilation and outstanding paint job.

    My brother really likes this case. :idea:

    Personally out of the ones you shown here my preference would be towards the CoolerMaster or the Gigabyte. I know CoolerMaster is on the top of my list for case quality.

    I like silverstone or Lian Li cases myself. They are a bit pricey but well worth it in build quality and features.

    I still like the smilodon.. The Dragonfire that em3bliko posted is good if you like that kind of thing... the whole killing peasants is really my thing..

    Smilodon is great, especially how it opens from the side, but it uses 80mm fan in the back which is already outdated or at least that what I think.
