New case options.

Hey I recently purchased my new ssd thanks to support on this forums but while trying to route my cables I finally said this is enough and I am wanting a new case I currently use the cm scout Rev.1

Ok so the new case must have:
Easy mounting for hdds/ssds
At least 3 drivrbays at the front
Alot of cable management options
A few mounting options for fans


That’s about all I need In a case id like for there to be a side panel / nice spots for leds/cathodes but not necessarily needed

Oh and my budget is about up to 150

Hi silverstormz,

With my current build, I have an NZXT Phantom 410 as my case and I love it - it also has all of the features that you want:

-Quick fitting for HDDs/SSDs
-3 drive bays at the front
-Room behind the mobo to route cables and lots of places to fasten cables to
-If I've counted correctly, room for 6 fans



I put some photos of my build in this album: http://www.sevenforums.com/album.php?albumid=918

NZXT :: Unique. Unprecendented. Inspired - Phantom 410 Product Detail

If you want something bigger, go for the NZXT Phantom (ie not 410) - it has room for a 240mm fan on the top. My H100 has a 240mm fan and I thought that the Phantom 410 would fit the radiator from the water cooler, but it didn't, so I had to fasten it to the roof of the case with a lot of wire

They're both well within budget.

I have no idea how they managed to fit it in. There's no way in hell it would line up with the screw holes because the RAM was in the way. I'll give it another go, but I'm not hopeful. I have low profile RAM as well, so that shouldn't be an issue

I love the look of both i'm considering either the Thermaltake or the Nzxt Phantom
The cosmos 2 isn't an option due to its weight (It will break my glass table)

If that is the tower you want; yes
If you don't want that tower; no
These tower were just suggestions of towers that I would take a serious look at.
If the tower I chose needed something stronger to sit on it would get it. Thats just me. Of course it is your choice. Be sure and let us know what you choose.

If you want to stay with CoolerMaster then may I suggest the Stryker which I've just built up and like very much. Also available as the StormTrooper in basic black with the window side panel as an option if I'm not mistaken.
