    Default Need Advice

    Hi I am looking for a case to do a new build and with all my research I have found the Azza Hurican 2000 to be the best in air flow, with best access to the rear of the processor, decent cable management and within my price range of $200 CAD or less. I have read the review but wanted to get everyones opinion on the case I am not hardcore but I still want to build a competitive computer with future upgrades in mind. If you can suggest a better Full Tower case I am open to suggestions. I have not bought a motherboard yet as I am building my new PC in an odd fashion of what I need now, First was a MSI N250GTSOC video card which needed more power so I put in the Ultra-LSP750pro, your opinions on these would be appreciated too. thanks in advance for your help and opinions

    I would look at the CM 690 II its a mid tower but has everything you need including good air folw, it can house 2 rad's if you decide to go waco, and I would take the extra 100 bucks it saves you and go for a better video card the 250's were really entry level and not meant for gaming at least not at high resolutions or with all the eye candy turned on.

    The rest of your stuff looks good.

    I reviewed the Hurrican and the HAF-X and the Antec DF-85 for the forum and those reviews are under cases and psu's so you can look them over.

    If you need a full tower with great Air I would recommend the HAF-X or the DF-85 over the Hurrican but they all do have great air flow.

    As the duffer says the 690 II from CM is a great case for a Mid-tower and he did the review on it and you will find it in the same section.

    Oh yea, welcome to the forum.

    CM 690 II is alright but i really have my heart set on a full tower i have a mid now and its just not enough room for me, also i want the room to play around with and see what i can do and a bit of flash would be nice whereas the CM 690 II is a little to plain, i am gald to hear about the video card as i have been wondering why its hasnt made much of an improvement in my gaming good thing i got it on clearance or i wouldnt be happy`the extra 50 bucks for a case isnt a big deal for me as most of the cases that catch my eye are 200 or less but full tower is a must
