Smile Cases and Cooling

Case recommendation really is subjective. I own the HAF X because of air flow, roominess, hot swappable sata 3 bays, usb 3 ports and more back slots for more gpus, sound cards,... If you have the case out in the open, then aesthetics is more important. On the other hand, if it's under a desk or pretty much hidden, then looks aren't as important.

Good luck with your choice!

This guy is looking at a Lian-Li case. Don't recommend a piece of crap like the PS04B.

HAF X, I love the looks and cooling is top notch for this case. I know the build quality isnt as high but I will take air performance over that Lain Li case.

I like that case, but i find the lian li that i picked has the same professional look and i like the orientation of the lian li better.. I just don't like how the ft02 is laid out for some reason
