Default Post your Favorite $100-150 Range ATX FULL Case

So now that I have everything in working order, I am looking to replace my case:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811215006

Because I absolutely hate it, I took a chance with it and it failed miserably.


So post your favorite ATX Full Tower, up to $150 (If it is the greatest thing since the ball, I'll push for the $200 range, but I'd like to find some quality cooling for less)

Why not a mid tower? Unless you have a ton of drives or something, you don't really need a full tower, and they're a lot more expensive.

this is a little bit above what you said, but this is my favorite case. Wish I could buy one, but I don't care enough about my comps to spend that kind of money.

Well I like the room to move around with..plus my HD 4870 (at some point 2) take up so much damn room.

I usually only have 2 drives a DVD-r/CD-r and a 52xCDr, I'll probably mod my next case to have some fans where the leftover drive slots are.

Considering: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811233026 or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811233013

I like the option for liquid cooling down the road..plus they are "basic" looking...I don't mind LED's but I don't fancy all the crazy designs..usually all the delicate architecture is plastic and or not made with durability in mind.

Wow I really like the Cooler Master 690
( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119142 )

Even though it is a mid case..I also worry about PSU's being on the bottom with heat rising and all..

Though I do love the fan placement, especially on the side panel.

Oh the choices !

NZXT Zero hands down...
Aluminum and super easy to work on. Comes with 8 fans I believe.
