    Default New Case

    Is the Antec P180's airflow good? Or is that more of a watercooling case?

    Hey criss have you looked at the Cooler Master cases? I just received mynew CM Sniper Storm Black edition last week. http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/prod...roduct_id=2950 The case looks awesome and has what I hope will be amazing cooling for a Mid Tower case. I will probably transfer everything over to this case tonight if I get a chance.

    Are you looking at a large Mid tower or a Full Tower?

    Here are a few more links to have a look at.

    it's a decent quiet case, the latest version are better than the orginal one. It's a little bit to work with cable management. Antec improved on this with the latest version.

    I wonder about the NZXT Beta EVO. It's extremely cheap, and looks like the airflow would be spectacular.

    Well I figured that, but I want amazing airflow in a smaller case than my current one.

    My budget is $150, and I want a smaller case so it can fit in tighter places. It's too loud for me to keep on my desk, and the only spot on the floor it will fit is in the corner, and I'm pretty sure it will build up alot of heat there. The airflow is also horrible.

    Smaller case means definately larger temperatures.If you really need a smaller one i believe you must focus on your cable management put 2000rpm fans as for the case check the Coolermaster HAF 922 it can take 200mm front fan,200mm at the top,140 at the back,120 or 140 at the bottom and 200 or 2x120 at the side panel its also pretty cool and in your budget.As i read it also have cable management and can take watercooling.Check it

    I've watercooled the Antec P180. It is a not very water cooling-friendly. Trust me.

    For your budget and airflow requirements I'd recommend the Cooler Master Sniper or HAF 922. Water cooling is definitely an option on both of them. I use the Sniper for my gaming rig and I love it but it's also more expensive. The HAF 922 is one of the very best airflow/H2O mid-towers I've seen. Highly recommend both of them. Both will fit an internal 240mm rad at the top. Very, very good cases.

    The Midgard is a great budget case (check our review that just got published!!) but it's definitely not in the same league as the HAF922 or Sniper.
