Default Case Decisions

Well im going to order a new case soon. And i think Ive finally figured out the 3 it's between! Bye-Bye NZXT Zero (its so loud!)

1: Coolermaster Cosmos


2: LIAN-LI PC-A70B


3: Thermaltake MozartTx


Whats your opinions on these three?
Which one is the best?
Any bad things about any of these?

Default Re: Case Decisions

there all 2 big for my tastes.Theres allot of dead space in them that hurt system cooling. Generally you want a case as small as it can be to fit all of your components with as many fans as possible.

I am grabbing this case http://www.crazypc.com/products/81328B.html




ignore the crappy pic and stupid blue lighting. The case will have a red glow to it and should look awesome (case wil be striped and air brushed in black inside) The side vent will have a 120mm fan assembly installed that will remove all the hot air. I will put a 120mm blow hole up top (filtered) that will intake air to the PSU and a bit to the cpu and ram. the rear 120 will remove that heat and the front 120 will feed the rest. As long as the GPU heat is removed this case will be VERY cool.

Yeah no water. Air for me

I just found this, pretty sick looking. I kinda like it.

Also, what are some other good sides with pre-modded cases?

you want to stay away from the PC-6X series they use a 80mm rear fan. You need to use the PC-7X series
