Hey Guys, I appreciate the help that you are going to give me in advance 8)

Around 6-8 months ago i built myself a computer, costing around 1k. Slandered i5, 1TB HD sort of build. At the time, I purchased myself a case that was on sale at Newegg, just wanting to have something to put everything in. Well now I have a lan party coming up, and want to spice up my case a little!

I'm looking for something in the $80-120 range. As an example, recently reviewed in max pc was the Sentey Arvina. I liked the looks of that one, but it seemed the internals didn't quite deliver, and I decided that i wouldn't purchase it.

So, i'm looking for a mid tower case,that is preferably black, with maybe a readout on the front with fan speed etc, nothing too flashy, that can fit two or three hardrives.

Think you have something to help? Thanks!

If the case is for a LAN party does that mean it will be mobile and needs a handle?

I can't say that I would go for any Sentey products but that's because they haven't wowed me yet with quality of their construction.

Also if you want a case with a LCD fan display you may have to get that separately there are plenty to choose from.
check here: http://www.frozencpu.com/cat/l3/g34/c17 ... d=6r4uTW8L

Here are some case choices:
CM Enforcer

Bitfenix Survivor
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/12615 ... c7s429b193
NZXT Guardian
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6811146070
CM 690 II Adv.

Take a look at the 5.25" fan controllers that are LCD that you may like and can be put into any case it will open up your possibilities.

Thanks for your reply, it is much appreciated. As far as it needing a handle, no it doesn't. I was just saying I would like a new one to show off at the LP.

I am somewhat a fan of this one - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6811146070
But I'm not sure I like the design on the front.

Is their anyway I can narrow down what sort of case I am looking for?


Also, thanks for the advice on the fan controller etc. I will keep that in mind!

Edit: I looked some more, and I like this case http://www.frozencpu.com/products/6257/ ... s429#blank
However, It only has one picture, anybody have some more, or something of that nature? Also, I was looking, and saw that you could purchase a fan control installation, Anybody know what that would look like on this case?

Thanks.

Personally I've been looking at this case for my own build Thermaltake V9 BlacX Edition with Docking Station (NewEgg Exclusive) SECC / Mesh ATX Mid Tower Computer Case Its 89.99 and says it has a mail in rebate.. coupled with one of these Aerocool F6XT 6 Channel Fan Controller / 5.25" Bay / Multi LED Color Display - Black For your front lcd panel 29.95 your looking at just around the top end of the budget you wanted and i think these paired would make a sweet home for a rig.


Good hunting
