    Default Full Tower Cases

    Hey, i am Looking for a Spacious Full Tower Case with Water cooling Possibilities but still a decent fan cooling system.. i also want it to look half decent (a fan of blue Leds) Pricing would be around $200-400AUD. (Also Very anal about Cable management). Not Worried about shops my local is very good with orders if need be.

  2. The following user thanks Benji For this above post:

    Welcome to PureOC Benji

    At around $150-300 US, you have a reasonable choice. Have you looked at PureOC's recent reviews?

    Perhaps, if you like blng, a case with a side window?. Have a look and let us know which you think looks the part.

    Yes, the Armor+ is a very good case. We recently published a review of it, take a read and we'll try to help if you have any questions:

    Heh. I don't disagree. But cases are also about personal style and taste, and the Armor+ does have a bit more flash than the 840 if someone is into that.

    We also reviewed the TT Spedo Advanced Edition , this is also a very good case, and great for routing cables.

    Also a nice case, less flash than the Armor though. Functionally, both work very well, but the Spedo has some better features. The aesthetics are quite different between the two though. Depends if you like a certain look.

    I'll second that case, highly recommended. :cool:

    The Cooler Master Stacker 810 (and/or the 830) is also very mod friendly, its big, you can do just about anything with it, really a solid and yet simple case.

    I'll fourth skyguy's, neosabre's, and benchwarmer's opinions on the atcs 840. I was going to get it, but then my budget required a bit of a slash I and got a thermaltake element s instead.

    Check out 3dgameman.com for Rodney Reynold's video reviews as he reviews a lot of cases. Here's the atcs 840.
    I'm not a Jew, but I like lox.
