    New Computer Case

    Hey all, I'm not too informed on what exactly the best choice of a case would be and I'm looking for some help deciding.
    Currently I have these 5 in mind:

    I'm a fan of CM products, which is why 4 of 5 are. The red LED is also something I like, due to my keyboard having red lights. If you don't like any of the above, another recommendation would be great; but do keep in mind that it should either have no LEDs or red LEDs. I'm not as savvy on computer upgrades as I'd like to be so help is greatly appreciated.

    So as I said, choosing one out of the above, or another recommendation. Thanks!

    I think you will grow tired of their looks by time.

    What about something elegant and simple ?

    Yeah, I'm good with something with no LEDs and just a sleek design. My range is $130 > and I just want a quiet, mid tower that's good for cooling. Currently, I have some cheap $35 case that's really loud and not very good at cooling. So whatever you have in mind, I'm open to all suggestions.

    Good cooling can come in any type of case. Hell, 90% of that is done with proper fans and cable management, which can be done in any case with a lifted motherboard tray and room for fans.

    Also, I don't see why someone would grow bored of the looks of a flashy case, and not grow bored of a 'simple and elegant' case. Then again, I'd be bored on day 1 with a 'simple and elegant' case.

    I'd recommend either the corsair 500r or the corsair 300r, both were nice to work with. The 500r has a built in fan controller and the fans it controls have white LEDs built in. The 300r has no LEDs. All three corsair cases I've worked on have been very nice to work with. (300r, 500r and 600T)

    Intel i5 3570k @ 4.5Ghz | CM Hyper 212 | Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H | XFX 550W | 8GB Corsair Vengeance Pro | Zotac GTX 560 | 1TB WD Caviar Blue | Corsair Carbide 200R

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811129021 Another "gamer case" but better then the coolermasters.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811345010 Love bitfenix cases and this one is pretty sexy (comes in white as well lol)

    It's pricey and kind of plain, but it has excellent cooling, tons of room, and sleek look.

    Perfect example of why "community" forums are poisonous to the health of a development team. These developers are wasting hundreds of hours trying to stem the tide of incessant bitchery that would never, ever abate so long as these entitled, unfortunate human beings don't get their way.
