    Default Looking for a cheaper new case.

    Hey, so I've been on and off here on the site for a while.
    I'm currently using the Corsair 550D computer case, which is an awesome case. The only thing I dislike about it is the size. It's quite big, and normally not an issue, but I go to my friends house most weekends, and I bring my computer with me, so we can all play some games and stuff. It gets annoying to lug this beast around all the time.
    I'm looking for a smaller case to use, but I'm having troubles finding one I KNOW will work.

    My dilemma is that I have the Corsair H100 cooling unit, so I guess I have to be picky for a case that will be able to fit the RAD.
    I'm looking to spend under $50 if possible, it needs USB 3.0 in the front. As far as colors, I'm not that picky, I don't care if it has a window I'd prefer not, but I will take what I can get.

    Currently I've got the ASUS M5A99X mobo.
    Nvidia GeForce 550Ti
    COrsair H100
    5 Hard drives
    2 DVD drives ( can remove 1 if needed)
    Seasonic 660W power supply. (maybe 620W, can't remember, too lazy to look)

    The Haf-XB sounds like what you want.

    I think this would be perfect for what you need and very easy to carry HAF XB - Cooler Master


    James I guess great minds think alike I currently have and use this case for my reviews and its very easy to move around
    and also makes a great test bench.
