    Case for my new build

    Hi there

    Here's my system:
    http://www.komplett.dk/k/shoplist.as...A-43308B936A88

    My question is, what case should I choose for optimal airflow and cooling? (and space for my heatsink and GPU)
    I have no more cash for extra fans
    I've looked a bit on these two:

    Or
    http://benchmarkreviews.com/index.ph...1&limitstart=5

    Which one should I pick?

    Thanks
    WilTrold

    I just built a new PC and got the Phantom. I highly recommend it! The 200mm fan on the top provides a huge amount of airflow along with the other fans it comes with. The fans are very silent and there is room for more fans if you feel you need more. Great airflow.

    That NZXT Phantom looks like it escaped from scifi movie propstore... Maybe inspired by the Phantom Menace... :P
    Never going to log into this garbage forum again as long as calling obvious troll obvious troll is the easiest way to get banned.
    Trolling should be.

    I haven't heard anything bad about the phantom. If it's between those two that's the one I would recommend.

    I use: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...?EdpNo=6338801. It has great airflow and comes standard with 5 fans (one on the top, one on the side, two on the front and one on the back). Its got plenty of room inside (easily enough for a large heat-sink) and has a built in fan speed control. It also has room for more fans, if you decide you need more.

    Just thought I would link this -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IQnrz...layer_embedded -- It's a Newegg review of the NZXT Phantom -- I forgot to mention in my above post that this has a build-in fan controller for all of the case fans as well, also a very nice feature.

    Just an FYI, no matter which case you chose in this scenario, fans can be installed with no hassle at all after you install everything and have been using the computer. Most cases have almost every wall that a fan attaches to removable, and thus allowing easy access for installing fans, but even without the removable panels, you can always lay the comp down to get into a spot you can't easily reach while it stands up.

    But of the two, I'd personally would go with the cooler master, but my opinion is because of physical appearance, along with enjoying CM cases in the past and present (currently I'm using a Haf X).
