Case to Mod

Sup Guys...

Im looking for a great case to mod... almost completely... so it doesnt have to have perspex sides...

the preferred specifications of the case:

Midi Case
Multiple HDD bays
MUST fit a RADEON HD4879 (about 10" - 11")
Preferably BLACK
and preferably under or +- R1000

I like the HDD bays of the HAF 922 as they are sideways... which would be SCHWEET as in my current case i am limited to 2 HDD's due to the HD4870's cables making two of them inaccessible...

Thanks Guys...

I have the 932, and its awesome, but if you want all black go with the HAF X.

It always helps in these situations to know what your choices are since we don't know where you live or what is avalible to you or in this case I don't know how much R1000 is in US currency. Just tryin to get you some more suggestions. Fabe

It is about $140... Im looking for a case the has a great front... I like the HAF but not necessarily cool sides as those are going to be modded... he could probably mod a handle onto the case for me...

Hi Nizz,
Have you considered the CM 690 II?
it's from the same manufacturer as the HAF series, has the exact same tool-less design for the 5.25 and 3.5 inch drives, all black interior and bucketloads of space.
It's currently priced at about $136 AUD (that's the cheapest I've seen it...), so it should be around $125 US.

Keeping your options open is always a good idea...
And no worries mate, I'm glad to be of service :)
