Default Woot. Burfday case upgrade.

Bonus! I'm upgrading my case from a crappy Codegen to something awesome, with ma' burfday money.

Should I get a...

Thermaltake Armor Junior

orrrr...

Antec P180


The Antec will likely cost 30 or 40 bucks more. But my main concern is QUIETNESS. Keep that in mind guys. I sleep like 7 feet away from my computer.

i hear nothing but good things about antec's cases, you could try Lian-Li's cases. i heard you liked plain looking cases in other hardware topics, and Lian-Li's are as plain as can be. plus they're great qality and have been arund for like 20yrs.

Iv heard good things about the Antec P180 and thermaltake make some amazing cases. Lian li are known for probably the best build quality but not amazing too look at.

its all personal preference what you think looks good, and is known to be good quality and easy to use.

The P180 is said to be whisper quiet and cool running.

If you want a full-tower case for not too much price, and a really quiet one you should go with one of these:

I recently bought one myself.

I'm pretty sure WorldIndustries is in Canada...
Newegg won't work for him.


I'm pretty sure Canadians can only get PC parts from Tiger Direct and NCIX.

TigerDirect is no good to me. They don't ship to PO boxes. I use Vibe Computers, Bigfoot Computers, and NCIX.

Yeah, I usually only get my PC parts from Tiger Direct... they are a pretty reliable company IMO.
