New Tower

Post by Neptune24 » Fri Sep 24, 2010 1:39 am

Hi Guys. I have had a look around my local PC shops to find a cooler tower than the one I have and to no avail. Does anyone know of where I can get something cooler than this??

do you think the tower in the picture looks cool? Cases are a matter of taste. I think the one in your picture is ugly personally.

I prefer simple cases with color accents like this one.

But either way if your looking for a case check out Newegg.com they have a wide selection of cases.

Personally, I'd like something that's spacious, sturdy, easy to use, and a bit of good looks.

- Antec Dark-Fleet 85 http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.as ... 6811129087
- Cooler Master HAF 932 AMD Edition!! (a wide variety of other selections/styles are available) http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.as ... -_-Product

I'm leaning towards the HAF because of the tool-less drive cages, lots of space for future expansion...and red is my kind of color...

I have to say that they are all very nice towers even the pink one (aside the fact that it is pink). Also are the smaller motherboards easier to work with than the normal sized ones??
