    Default New case?

    So my old (13months old) psu is fucking up making my pc do random reboots - have upgraded to a Corsair RM750 which is working real good but because it is a fair bit larger than my old one is taking up more space in my case meaning more heat - am looking to get a new case not sure what to go for any suggestions?

    Looking for something not too big but with a lot of fans / cool

    Am after full size atx

    Antec have always made some nice aluminium cases with well thought out air flow, disk compartments etc.

    I just bought one of these and its awesome, note there's no bays for optical drives though.

    Its a Chinese brand so it was only 50 quid here, so I'm not sure if I'd choose it at 90odd.

    This is the one I haf (sorry couldn't resist the pun LOL) and it gets my vote.. great case with great airflow and can be used for liquid cooling should you want to go that route..

    I can vouch for NZXT. I have a H2 and it's very well built, has high quality, silent fans and when in high operation is difficult to tell it's on, my Corsair H80i probably helps alot with that too.
    Also has gauze type filters all over it and does a great job of keeping dust off everything inside the case whilst still managing a great amount of airflow, even under the desk.
    When ordering, mine was a toss up between NZXT H2 or Fractual Design R4. Both very good cases and the flip of a coin decided on the NZXT for me.

    Factual Design R4

    NZXT H2

    All really just comes down to what you want to put in it and what you want it to look like (I like minimalist feel).

    I custom built a gaming PC recently for someone and used the Fractual Design R4, I was very impressed with it but it is fairly large (full ATX). Think it is probably the best case I have ever used and there is a windowed version (which I used). It's very heavy, mainly due to the sound deadening panels on the sides.
