Help me choose a case! :)
 
Hi guys, I've been out of the hardware cycle for waaaaaaay too long, I don't even know what's about now! :(

Anyways, Christmas has been and gone and I'm now looking for a new case for my system. It needs to be full ATX for my Crosshair V but I'd like it to be as small as possible! I want it to look classy but most importantly be near silent without sacrificing performance (airflow).

Throw some suggestions at me! Any reviews you could back it up with would be fantastic :)

ODD aren't needed either!

I'd say Corsair Air 540 :)

Phanteks Enthoo Pro?

Aren't they both massive? :) I know the Air 540 is short but it's super deep! :P

I've not seen much of the Phanteks I'll have a look!

Nzxt H440, all fans on 7 volts, it is so quiet.

Corsair 450D, I'm sat less than 500mm from mine and it's near silent even with 7 fans running.

Near Silent, Look Classy, Small for an ATX case... I'm going to play a curveball Corsair 550D :eek:

The only thing they aren't great for is clearance above the motherboard, no chance of a fat AIO but enough for a H100i and they don't have a window stock but they are nicely built and appointed cases. The last of the discrete button opening side panel era.

Good call sir, I'd forgotten about those!

Hmm, not sure about the obsidian series, are you running an aio?

It's a tad too expensive for me at the moment, I'm still a student! :D Any thoughts on the 330R? looks to be much of the same without a window?

I've never actually seen a 330R, I know they did a Titanium edition too that's very reasonably priced. Presumably it's quite closely related to the 450D, could be a good option. Corsair have the 230T as well in the compact ATX size, they look rather fetching in orange/grey. They aren't excessive but the H440/Air 540/Enthoo are certainly larger cases. Sorry for overshooting the budget, where abouts are you aiming?

I'm looking around the 90 tops mark, could go a bit over but want to buy a new cooler too! :)
