Default Clean Full Tower

I am looking for a cleaning looking full tower case that has a door at the front, I really like the look of the corsair 750d but I would prefer to keep the clean look without going to a external dvd/blue ray drives. does anyone know of any cases that look like the 750d or fractal design and have a door and are a full tower?



Corsair 750d



Fractal design Define xl

you need the maybe hard to find LIAN LI PC-A76WX

otherwise... ThermalTake Urban S41 ATX Mid Tower Case, Black at Memory Express

but really, stick to the Fractal XL

That antec is not bad looking and is priced reasonably.

I was looking at Lian Li, very nice cases and exactly what I am looking for but I can't justify spending $500 on a case, I think i am going to go with the fractal xl.

Nicely setup cases, with loads of room. sound deadening material and a fan bus, i hadn't even given nzxt a look as most of there cases look to out there.

The Phanteks case is a watercoolers wet dream and a serious blow to the pocket, if clean lines are all you want there are much cheaper and cleaner cases which is why it wasn't suggested (by me at least)

Lol, funnily enough I have both these cases right now!. At first I didn't like the fractal design, but it grew on me, however the 750D is just beautiful. I don't like the 5.25" bay's on the 750D, but nobody uses those anymore.

If you are using the optical bays Id say fractal to hide it. but the functionality of the 750D is just unreal and the beauty is perfect ;) Id go with the 750D ;)
