New Case Suggestions
 
I am thinking of migrating away from my Tech Bench (seeing as I have a few big moves coming up) to a full sized case that should last me several years (and be able to eventually hold watercooling parts).

Now I don't want to cheap out, but I don't want to spend 300$ on a case at the same time. What do people have to suggest?

So many to choose from but this:
Cooler Master Storm Trooper Full Tower Gaming Case with Fan Controller, Black at Memory Express
Will be my next one. I need a handle! :haha:

I'd be looking at the Shinobi XL. Big enough to put anything in, won't break the bank. Even comes with an extra window panel right now on NCIX.

My vote goes to the Trooper.

I totally understand you don't want to spend 300$ on a case. But just to keep you dreaming, look at this one!

This one is 350$ but I have to admit it is the dream case for me even thought I really like my HAF-X. I think every build situation will fit + it looks badass + great airflow + it looks badass (Did I say it looks badass?) :haha:

Hmm don't seem to like how either of the cooler master cases linked in here look, just a personal preference. The Shinobi on the other hand does intrigue me.

I have used the cooler master HAF X 942 ($180 $160 with rebate) and Corsair Carbide Series 400 ($100). They are both great. Corsair case is well thought out and reasonably priced at $100 and had USB 3.0 plugs on the front of the case. The HAF X is oversized big and may not fit under desks and such but has wheels to roll it around, has lots of extra parts included and fan space. Kind of depends on your wants, needs and desires but both will do what you seem to want to do and not cost $300. :-)

CM HAF X 942 Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER HAF X RC-942-KKN1 Black Steel/ Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

another choice is the HAF X 932 $140 and $130 with a rebate

If you dont need XL-ATX, bitfenix raider. It's an excellent case and looks great.

Corsair. WHichever one floats your boat. Great quality and great features for an average sub 200 dollar case.

Doesn't seem like the case will hold all the necessary watercooling parts within the case, according to a review or two I've read.
