Default Case

I am looking for a case that will be rewarding in thermal temps and not to loud.

Take a look at the CM HAF series. I have built four computers with the HAF 912 case and I absolutely love it.

I have the CM HAF 932, it is a monster full tower case and I couldn't be happier, but the other ones in that series are awesome as well. +1 iFargle

Antec Atlas

i love this case. i've built a bunch of boxes with this case.

patonb's question is important because what i like may not be what you need. but the Atlas is a great case.

Also pricey, Infinite. The HAF's are cheaper. I have the HAF 922 and love it.

No its important, as if he has a haf X, its not going to be easy to find a better airflow case, but if he has a Dell oem, than 94.6% of cases are better.

So are you saying that you want more options apart from HAF series cases?
