Personally idgaf what the case looks like, since I have it under my desk and only look at it to turn it on or open it. As long as it's not humongous and is easy to work with, It could look like my sweet grandma mack's dead body for all I care God rest her soul
Fuck you, I like my Stryker, despite it´s retarded name. I got a good deal on it because one USB-port didn´t work properly. My monstrous hands and heatsink can´t be arsed with small cases.
Had an AZZA Genesis 9000b because black/red was my color theme. I just swapped it for a Source 210 and holy shit is the difference noticeable. Idle CPU and GPU temps dropped 5-10°C, not to mention it's a fraction of the weight and still works with red/black (except the white light)
It's aight. I wish my PSU and hard drives were concealed though.
Going to get pic related this summer.
Just the right amount of rice. Looks refined but still has a window so I can see all my beautiful hardware that I paid so much for.
I've been using this guy for almost a decade now.
Wish I could find a replacement side panel because the intel cag ducting probably cause more harm than good with current configuration.
Besides a few newer cases and boutique/custom cases, pic related is pretty much /thread
nice swaggaholic teen case you all have,
here's, my milf case
>Girl on right = Most cases in this thread
Oversized, tacky, plastic trash. Annoying to deal with. Would be ashamed to show to anyone.
>Girl on left - Define R4
Sophisticated, made of steel, no tackyness found. A pleasure to use. Proud to show off to anyone.
L 300 mm X W 211 mm X H 280 mm
Tiny case for matx + 2*3.5 + 1*2.5 hdds + ATX PSU, support for 260mm GPU
Honestly I've seen ITX cases larger than this.
Now you can have a tiny footprint without the premium cost of the ITX boards.
I love how much rad you can stuff in it but I checked it out in a store and the build quality and materials looked quite cheap. Shit, even in your picture you can see the grill sticking out weirdly on one side.
Cooler Master N200 mid-tower case
Here's the inside. It's cheap af too.
yah the top two corners of the grill click in and out to remove it, they must have left one clicked out. The plastic shell feels a little cheap but the insides are sturdy and well-organized
The N200 is a solid case for the price, cable management is tricky to say the least though.
Build I did for a friend in one.
>have elegant case and classy workstation with good monitor, speakers and headphone
>call it battlestation
>waifu as wallpaper
>poorly mastered j-pop on player
nah it's just shot from an unflattering angle. it still looks presentable when viewed from a normal distance of about 1-2 meters away. not to mention the side panel will be closed anyway.
also I'm running at stock right now so I'm holding off on an aftermarket HSF. and even when I OC to 3.8 I'm going to stick with stock for a while.
Still using an Antec Sonata Proto.
Nice PROFESSIONAL sleek simple looks.
Small inside though and it doesn't have AMAZING airflow but everything inside stays nice and cool still. Wiring inside is impossible to get clean.
The monolith formerly known as the switch 810.
Hilarious how you fags overuse the term, it doesnt even make sense, a cuck by all definitions doesnt seek approval at all, no other way you could live in that stage since nobody approves of it.
>Unless you're overclocking, which is stupid, I don't think someone needs an aftermarket cooler
well, overclocking is not stupid, but the truth really is that most people don't need aftermarket cpu coolers. there's always going to be a load of consumerist bullshit peddled by whoever online, but stock coolers are good for pretty much everyone unless they are "enthusiasts." the same applies to thermal paste as well.
Would it be better to have the airflow go from the top to bottom or the bottom to top?
>why do you need an approval from a bunch basement dwellers?
The same reason I'd want a bunch of gymrats to approve my new workout plan. The basement dwellers have a wealth of experience and enthusiasm.
Fuck yeah N200
For $30 you can't go wrong.
Got this. ~30 bucks off local marketplace
Pretty great. Added rubber padding. Disappointed by the fact that it has only two exhausts.
No but seriously, bought a 212 evo, wasn't that expensive, like 30euro or so, it's worth even for the sound, and as a bonus you get cooler temps
Any good, cheap cases, no rice shit, atleast as little as possible, USB 3 at front panel, ATX midi ? Cheap as in sub 50$
Current case has no cable management, side panel doesn't close because the power cables are fat as fuck and sticks out from the GPU, also 212 evo sticks out a little bit
Hardly fits the GPU, need to fiddle a little bit to fit it in place, impossible to comfortably fiddle with the cables without cutting hands on sharp metal like GPU and shit, while trying to replug SSD(some kind of problem, needed to replug few times)
Everything in this thread is total shit or just mediocre.
If used for casual stuff, work, etc. fine
but gaming or serious work that require power is like an oven, unless some higher end cases
Personally, I value better airflow and such over noise
>tfw ricer shit cases with X and bullet holes and shit are good in everyway, except the design
Cheap, good airflow, lots of space, toolless assembly, cable management etc. etc. but that god awful design
challenge for u,find me a case that;
>can fit a 12 inch videocard
>4 HDD slot
>1 SSD bay
>good cable management
>good air flow
>does not look like shit
>less than 120 dollaridoo
the disk drive is almost vertical
the thing is that i'm goin to work with audio so it will probably require power but noise is not going to help either, but i'll think it further, thanks for the help anon.
Thanks for the tips Anon, gonna try that, if i can make it quiet at least form the listening moments it will work i guess.
I can't really find anything wrong with it, and it's certainly a step up from my old Challenger case. As much as I liked it, I couldn't fit my watercooler, and the cable management could be better.
My mom bought me this pc guys it's so good i can play advanced warfare at ultra high
uh, the one in the pic doesn't have any windows, wonder if the pic is wrong...
what does /g/ think about my case? good? bad?
why do you faggots get cases without a gpu fan? Do you enjoy irrationality or do you do it just for muh looks
+1 For the NCase.
I really want to go 4K and SLi though, but I can't find a decent mATX case without at least doubling the size :(
If your case has any single one of these features, then it is NOT a /g/ approved case. If any if-statement results in true, then your case is disqualified.
>If case has a Corsair Logo ANYWHERE
>If case is MicroATX or larger AND lacks cable routing features.
>If case color is anything but Black, Gray, or Silver.
>If case costs more than $60 AND is made of only Steel and/or Plastic components only.
>If case has plastic retention "toolless" mounting for HDDs or ODDs or GPUs.
>If case has ANY LED lit case fans.
>If case belongs to any prebuilt consumer PC. (Barebone systems and NUCs are excluded.)
>If case has a sidepanel window.
>If case contains ANY amount of glossy plastic pieces.
>If case has a carrying handle of any kind.
Bonus points for your case if it meets the following specifications.
>If case contains filters for exhaust and/or intake fans. (More if they're easily accessible and washable.)
>If case has an aluminum fascia.
>If case is SFF (Small Form Factor).
>If case has no visible ODD bays.
Fuck off with anything else. 90% of the shit posted here is for gaymer faggots who seriously believe their shit is discrete and/or minimal in any fucking way.
I actually like this. Unique, despite probably not being practical. Although, shouldn't the 'ware be angled the other way in there? Seems like a bad idea to make it all hang from its connections/screws rather than just resting.
Get yourself one of these faggot.
>the only somewhat good cases in this thread either have shitty windows or are covered in logos not worth showing off
When did cases become so branding-covered? I built my PC, not a fucking memory company nobody outside of enthusiasts have ever heard of.
Lian Li makes some surprisingly good shit. I do like their aluminum cases in particular.
you'll ni/g/g/as don't know nothin
