Cool Computer Case choice

helo fellow CF members, i'm lookin for your help in a choice for a computer case. I've got a ok one right now but i'm lookin 2 upgrade 2 one sence this christmas i'll be getting some modding for the inside and wish to have a window and it wouldn't be worth cutting a window into the current case i have. The main things i'm lookin for are that it has a vent or fan on the side at least for the add-in cards, a window of corse, front veltilation, the one i have now sorta does but i really want a grill or vents that would actually pull in air. a 120mm grill on the back, and preferably a tempiture monitor on the case. looking at my specs for my computer i need alot of ventilation mainly because i really like havin a cool case. it microATX is still optional because i may be getting a different motherboard. also some extra things i would like is a fan on the top, although not really needed. i'm also trying not 2 go much over 100 bucks but i am flexible. could any fellow CF members help me find a case? i've been searching but other POVs would be nice

Well I know this one is pretty wicked, but unfortunately its a little more than $100 but you still might want to consider it. It's one of the best cases you can buy IMO.

I think this one would more than suite your needs though despite the price.

Talking Re: Computer Case choice

you kno i have seen that case around and really do like it. it is more than i want 2 pay but ur right it's just about perfect. well yea it is lol. one thing i would change if i could is the 2 X 80mm fans on the back to 1 X 120mm. i think http://www.xoxide.com has it for cheaper, which is very suprising i buy just about everything off of newegg.com, but i do like xoxide as well. i do thank you for making that standout for that case, i donno if i would have through of it and maybe i can get them 2 bring it down with a wishlist or something. something else that case reminded me of is that tooless design is an extra feature i want, it's becoming much more common especially in cases in that price range.

That case is horrible, the fans that it comes with push no air at all. Get this case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811129154 im getting better temps with the Antec P-180 than the X-navigator.

that does look like a pretty nice case but there arn't alot of features on it i would like. it does look great for performance but sence i was going 2 do the modding things inside i'd like a window for 1 and i don't have any experence in window fixtures and don't wanna screw ^ a case or pay alot of money 2 have it done for me, although i will still keep it in mind

Well yeah mooseman made a good point by saying that he would replace the 80mm fans with 120mm because those 80mm really don't move much air.

you cant put a 120mm fan in a 80mm slot. It just doesnt work. As far as the mods go, what mods are you planning to do? If its just UV lights, its kind of a waste, unless you have some insane cable management and the x-navigator doesnt give you that.

im not too fond of that case, it looks kind of cheesy. IMO, i like the the plain, but sleek look.

ahh i c i didnt know that. i was just guessing that it did have the mounts for it cause my Xion case has mounts for either 80mm fans or one 120mm fan.

And yeah i agree with ya ownage on that Nemeis case, it does look cheesy. I like the more simpler designs as well so I was going to suggest a thermaltake case like the tsunami but it doesnt have a temperature monitor like Mooseman said he wants.
