Default New Tower

Hi guys.

I'm looking for a new PC tower. As expected I have certain requirements for said tower.

I want one that has the following:
Micro ATX form factor
Decent cooling (Don't have water cooling so doesn't need to have the holes for that)
Cable management
Silver or white in colour
With or without fans and PSU. Not fussed as fans are cheap enough
Side window

If it help with what to suggest, I have an xblade at the mo (just type xblade into google images and it with come up)

Thank you

Mossiac

Are you interested in building your own desktop?

Xblade= Major yuck. I can see why you want another box for your baby.

I have used the Antec line in the past for smaller builds. They are roomy enough and because of how they are built, super quiet. They have recently come out with some white cases in the performance one line.
Seems that newegg is out of stock on a lot of the Antec line but you can buy direct from Antec USA. http://www.antec.com/product.php?Family=6

Cooler Master RC-430-KWN1 Elite 430 Mid Tower ATX Case - ATX/Micro-ATX, USB, Audio, 120mm Blue LED Fan, Black at TigerDirect.com

This is the case I have, it's very good. It has plenty of room, installing hard drives/disc drives is very easy, it comes with a fan and has lots of places where air can flow. It also has MicroATX. Also cheap! Comes with a window as well.

I understand this is probably out of your "wanting to spend" range for a case, and maybe to big. But it does support micro and is rather future proof. Iv had it for almost 4-5 years, and still kicking.

If that side panel was better laid out I'd get one. I'm going with the P280 for my build.

I have made a choice ordered it and am now awaiting delivery.

It has everything that I am looking for and it looks lush.

Only downside is that the cable management holes have no rubber guards but thats fine.
