Default Gaming Case

i want to now what the best absolute quality case there is to buy that has some good looks. i am not thinking of a liquid cooling system because i am putting together a Intel 8 processor skulltrail set-up. the case must be a Full-Tower. price = doesn't matter. i was thinking like Lian Li pc80 (wondering if its a full-tower) or silverstone temjin tj09 case. I also prefer clear sided cases.


plz feel free to leave your thoughts after reading

Default Gaming Case

well, i don't need a paint job although they are nice cases. i personally like the coolmaster Cosmo 1000 and the Lian LI p80, and i was s wondering if the p80 was a full-tower case.

The Lian Li P80 is most definetly a full tower case and then some. Its is much bigger than any of the Cosmos's and IMO built much better. IE no plastics and everything feels high quaity. This thing will eat up a skulltrail setup no problem.

The price though can be a little tough to stomach at $400.


The 690 isin't anywhere near a full tower.....

Since price is no object, a nice MountainMods case will do.

If it's strictly for air cooling, I'd go with the P80, Mountain Mods U2-UFO Original, Silverstone TJ07, or those beautiful Smooth Creation cases...

How about an Antec 1200? It's a really good case with some nice airflow.
