Recently, with the help of this very forum, I've rebuild my gaming computer. I'm not very rich, so I decided to save whatever components I could. I ended up only saving my dvd drive and case basically. And quite recently, it started bugging me that I put all these fancy components in this old shabby case. (Took the side off once, because of high temperatures during the summer (+/- 40-45 Celsius). Never did find the side again, and my house really isn't that big...)
You can imagine how awesome my airflow is. It's basically just room temperature with no flow at all, even though there's several fans to at least get some cooler air in there. So, I've come to realize that I actually do need a new case. On one side because it just looks better, and on the other side to extend the life of my components.
I'm quite confused when it comes to cases these days. The case I have had for years I solely picked based on how it looked like. But, with my new setup, I'd like to actually get a case with proper cable management and the room and features to get a nice airflow going. It also wouldn't hurt if it looks a bit cool. Not a big fan of the 'simple looking cases'. Not sure why, might be because I like the fact that when people come over they ask me "wth that thing is that sort of looks like a computer".
TL;DR: Recently upgraded pc. Micro ATX Mobo, but Gigabyte Windforce x3 7950 graphics card. They're both the same size, nearly. I want a nice looking, dare I say flashy case for a gaming computer. Must have good cable management and whatever's needed for a good airflow. I don't need a PSU, but could use recommendations on what fans to get. (Effectiveness vs noise)
Based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, Europe.
Micro ATX mobo: Asrock B75 Pro3-M
Two 3.5" HDD's.
One 2.5" SSD.
One dvd drive.
Gigabyte Windforce x3 7950 (quite a large card, and it releases heat on the "top side". Basically, the side of the card thats the furthest away from the mobo.)
I don't need a PSU to be included. Recently bought the Antec HCG520.
Extra USB ports in the front for easy access are not necessarily required. Always have a big hub in one of the ports of the back. Also don't care about any audio plugs in the front.
Budget is no issue, although I would like it to stay as low as possible without sacrificing quality.
All help and recommendations on brands and particular cases are more than welcome. Thank you very, very much in advance!
