View Full Version : Need help with a new case
I need some help picking out a new case. I'm looking at these, tell me what you think.
Or if you know of another really nice case, please let me know.

I'm partial to the Lian Li myself.
Thermaltake isn't bad... I have a Tsunami and I like it but there are some drawbacks vs. my Lian Li PC60.
If you go with the Thermaltake the styling on the Tsunami is nicer IMO.
BrianG (aka Halcyon) here on staff is reviewing that Lian Li case (or one very similar) so I bet he'll chime in here with his thoughts on it for you.
I checked and BrianG is reviewing the V1000 Plus, not the V1200 Plus...I knew it was one of the two.
And yeah, that V1200 Plus is very long.

in gotta tip my hat to the antec superlanboy. i LOVE her.
You know I didn't realize how long that Lian case was until it was mentioned hehe. I guess that is why it has all those cooling fans lol. I like the look of that Shark though and it has the option for water cooling which I want to eventually go to.
I'm going to take another look at that Tsunami and go look at the Antec's super lanboy.

The depth of the LL is a positive thing. Cases w/more air volume tend to stay cooler than smaller, more cramped cases.

Well The Antec Peformance 2 SOHO Case That I'm Using Right Now
Is Solid And Roomy :thumbsup: I Can Tip My Hat To Antec For Well Made Cases :super:
Ok I still need some recommendations. I want to use a Antec TruePower 2.0 Power Supply TPII-550 550W ATX12V 2.01 and since it has a top 12cm fan on it, the Tsunami, the Super Lanboy, Antec Peformance 2 SOHO, and the Lian-Li I was looking at are out. There is not enough breathing room between the fan and the top of the case for the power supply. There are full tower Lian-Li's that will work nicely but that is way to much room.
The only option right now is the Shark. Anyone have any other options/opinions?
Based on the two links you supplied; As far as looks, the black one in the first link, but it looks like the Lian has some good air flow. Me? I'd get the first black one.
Yes Zeero that is a nice case :) It will not allow me to use the power supply I want to use (Antec TruePower 2.0 Power Supply TPII-550 550W). Since the fan is mounted on the top of the PSU, there is not enough space between the top of that case and the PSU.
