Stylish Cases

Kumiko

Which brand has spacious and stylish cases? Where could I get decent looking ones? Color and price don't really matter. and I'm not sure how to read the diminsions. Is it LengthXwidthXheight? or widthXlengthXheight?

For the dimensions, I agree it can get frustrating. Personally I just go through different sources until I get one that tells me which is which, or just stare at the picture trying to guess.

As for being spacious and stylish... Perhaps Corsair's Graphite line or the NZXT Phantoms? Shrug*

I have a few cases I added to my favorites. Here's 1 I wanted but not sure if it'll be easy to work with. (Putting in the parts and plugging in wires wherever they go.) >>> http://pcpartpicker.com/part/azza-case-csazxt1w

Here's another that I might get >>> http://pcpartpicker.com/part/azza-case-csazxt1w

First of all, Azza isn't a very good brand, and second, a case like that will be a massive eyesore once you get used to it. Cases like that look good on paper, but once you get them under your desk they look tacky and out of place. If you want something flashy that still looks good, an NZXT Phantom or Corsair 760T or 780T. If this is your first build, a god case is extremely important to make the process go smoothly. Go for one from a good brand, like Corsair, BitFeniix, Fractal Design, NZXT, or Phanteks. Stay away from sketchy brands like Azza, Aerocool, Raidmax, and Ultra.

This Fractal case has many good ratings >>> https://pcpartpicker.com/part/fractal-design-case-fdcadefr4blw

But it's just so plain. I know a nice case isn't important, but I was hoping to find 1 I really like. Thanks for the help though :) Much appreciated.

Try this: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/phanteks-case-phes614lwt It has a nice eye-catching black and white color scheme, with an RGB LED strip around the outside. Phanteks cases are very easy to work with.

Love the case, but the price almost made me cry. Thanks for the suggestion! I think I found my case :) Probably gonna paint it black and set the LED lights to purple.

Your idea of stylish is very different from most.

Because I want a case that looks good instead of 1 that blends in with everything else around it.

It's what I'm currently using. It's very spacious for an ITX chassis.

I should'v specified the size of the case I'll be needing. Thanks, but I'll be using an ATX mobo.

You can start with how awesome it looks. Or how much it costs (you did say price didn't matter, though lol).

Sarcastic, right? Made me laugh :) I'll never pay $900 for a case, especially one that ugly. If you're serious, thanks but I don't like the case or it's price tag.

Thermaltake, Corsair, and Phanteks and good brands. ex: Thermaltake Core V71, Phanteks Enthoo Luxe, and Corsair 780T are all cool looking cases with plenty of room. Although, the NZXT cases, the phantoms look pretty stinkin cool. But not as much room for water cooling, but its all up to you what you want in you case.

I checked out the Thermaltake Core V71, and it looks good. :) Thanks for recommendations and info. Is water/liquid cooling suggested even without OC? I chose the Intel i5-4790K, but I won't be OC'ing.

The 4790k is great, but if you plan on getting an unlocked processor, I would strongly consider water-cooling. If you don't want overclock getting a regular 4790 would be ideal. Anyway, the k means it is an unlocked processor and overclocks better. You could get the Thermaltake Water 3.0 Ultimate if you want to overclock or might consider it http://pcpartpicker.com/part/thermaltake-cpu-cooler-clw007pl12bla It would really cool that cpu, it has a 360mm radiator and the case supports it http://www.thermaltakeusa.com/products-model.aspx?id=C_00002231 the cpu cooler has gotten good reviews and performs well. Custom water cooling loops would work better (the ultimate still has great performance though), but it will save a head ache and cost less to go with the ultimate. Custom Watercooling loops costs around $250< at least good ones, and takes knowledge to put one together ( of which I'm not adept in). Anyway, if your interested in the Thermaltake Water 3.0 Ultimate, here a quick video just to give you an idea on how easy it is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9cM9J0LOxpg. The thermal paste is already applied and the water is already in the reservoir. If you want to find out about custom loops, I would ask experienced people, unlike myself. Hope it helps and you appreciate the big paragraph :D

I do appreciate the big paragraph :P I don't plan on over-clocking, but I do want to keep everything fairly cool. Thnx for everything :)
