Default Modern Cases

Hi All!

I am in the process of building a new PC. At the moment - I need to find a case.

I am currently using a Thermaltake Soprano (silver version) - http://www.igniq.com/images/ttake_soprano_080705.jpg

and I require a new case (as ill be using this pc as a NAS later on). Could anyone recommend any cases? I really like my thermaltake case as it looks sophisticated and modern. Can anyone recommend caes that look sophisticated and modern and have a clear/see through side panel?

Thanx Everyone

+1 for Xoxide.

Damn IZ, 666 posts!

Since you, OP, didn't mention which type of case or cost, here's a couple of my favorites for full tower:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811112243 (no side panel though)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811133072 (limited view side panel, more of a vent)

and for mid towers:

Any one of these should do you well. It really depends on how much you want to spend. That one Thermaltake is really expensive, but it's a real nice case and Thermaltake is top quality.

I second this case I just got done ordering everything for my new computer and I saw this one on a post I had read some reviews on and really liked what a saw. So I went with a great combo that Newegg had. I also like the not so in your face look of it.

Great cases, just never could afford something that for all intents I'd be inside of maybe once or twice a year other than dustings. But there are a few Lian Li's now that I want to build my server into, get it prepped for some RAID 5 lovin.
