    *Case

    Hey all,

    Just looking for some suggestions as to case for the Mrs. My spare Antec 300 is too big and too black apparently so I need something smaller and ideally silver/white - I may be able to get away with black if it's dinky enough. Not looking to break the bank as it's only an i3 going in there with a low-end card for the Sims.

    Thanks in advance.

    Let the Mrs. pick it out herself? Of course narrow the search criteria first to only brands that are not garbage.

    If it's MATX, try the FT03? I don't know what your budget is though...

    Failing that, the TJ08-E, Lian Li A04, A05-NA, SG-03 or Lian Li V351-A would be good bets.

    thats quite big. Bigger than the antec 300.

    Hmmm do they do a mini fractal design in white? Would be sweet. Or you could do a ft03 with pink/purple lamps under the skirts

    Help her mod a case? My boyfriend had a case a friend spray painted red and black with Sith designs on.

    Personally I'd hate a pink case, I'm going for a black fractal to match all my other black gadgets.

    if you can get away with the Matx case and have the budget, +1 for the FT03, bloody awesome case, expensive but worth it!

    I'll be showing her the suggestions in here ;)

    An Arc Mini (rather than Define) was my first thought but they don't do them in white.


    The Lian Li A05N would be my choice so far but doesn't seem to be available in the UK in silver. It may be a little over budget even in black as I'm looking around the £40-50 mark. It may have been helpful had I said that in the first place :duh:

    I've never had any experience with MATX but that could be an option. Happy for suggestions for MATX cases and a decent MATX SB mobo too!

    If you decide on a nice size case but the colour isn't right. Then maybe you could get it sprayed pink.
    Or for a less time/money consuming aproach you could get some vinyl laser cut decals that make it a bit feminine. Ive seen some kool pink/white swirls/flowers/buterflys in some shop, they would fit nicely on the side panel.

    Just a thought
