Default Case Opinions

okay, imma buy a case for my next upcoming build... and i will be going watercooling.. so keep that in mind

i was thinking of going with the CM Stacker, and this is something i'll probably be ordering tonite or tomorrow, so, just throw out some good water cooling cases.. my budget for this case goes up to 200-250 dollars... but i don't wanna push it that high just for a case...

and i sorta wanna keep it black.. nice black theme... cuz the 680i is black... the CPNS 9700 i'm getting is black.. the pcb of the 8800gtx is black... so yea, blackness, with black lights in it!! yummers...

That's the dumbest thing I have ever heard of.


Yes, Ok I understand let's be unique, but the CM stacker is in a class of it self, and it's something that will do for him that almost no other case will.


It's a monster case, and totally worth it. I love mine. I have the side window on it and everything.

I think the T01 is best for water cooling setups and the 810 is more for air cooling enthusiasts w/ 12 slots for 120mm fans.

Id have to reccomend the gigabyte aurora

Its and amazing case, and the coolest tihng is that at a lan party you dont see 30 of them like you do a stacker.

Ive been to about 5 lans, biggest had 500 gamers, and nobody had another one...

Check this out, its the latest revision of the aurora.
