Okay so my birthday is coming this September and well after replacing my motherboard and processor i think its time for a new case as my old one is sadly falling apart, my front face plate barely latches on now with pieces snapped off due to long term wear and tear. My old case is a In Win griffon, its served me well but its time to retire it due to how much I beat it up over its lifetime, I clean my computer a lot and most of the damage was my fault. So new mothertboard, new processor, might as well do new case so I can have a near fresh build. But what to choose? Well in the end its my choice but i do like some feedback, there are at least 6 competitors to choose from and I want to keep this within a 50 to 70 American dollar budget. If I go a little over $70 its fine such as a $75 as some good cases are in that range however $80 is out, I am not spending over $80 on a case and I dont care how good the stupid fractal design R5 is, its a $100 and I will not spend that much on something that will mainly sit under my desk. However that also doesnt mean i want a boring old black box, I do want the case to have some personality of its own and stand out against the trend of boring black boxes. So something with form, features and nice cooling options are at play. I will not be using water cooling, as its a waste for my non overclocking CPU or motherboard, I have a H97 ATX motherboard so keep that in mind when using the "other" category. But I will be probably be replacing my Intel stock cooler with a cooler master 212 EVO so keep in mind side panel clearance with your suggestions. So without further adieu here are the forerunners for this poll: 1: The Corsair Carbide Spec-03 "Bane" case: 2: The Corsair Graphite Series 230T Orange: 3: The Zallman Z3 plus 4: The In Win GT1 (would be a spiritual successor to my current case due to its price point) http://www.inwin-style.com/en/goods.php?act=view&id=GT1 *note no good direct pics of this one so linked inwins website instead 5 The Enermax Ostrog GT: 6: Other Yes you get to choose one, again please keep to my $50-70 range (though $75 is acceptable so yeah the last generation Fractal design define R4 would fit in, though I dont like its panel only swinging to the left as I keep my PC to my right) Also USB3 ports are in my sights as my motherboard supports it, so stuff without USB3 would be accepted but I feel I could use USB3 ports on my front Also please consider my motherboard size, no MATX cases!
