More like "bad photoshop skills" fridge.
Cosmos S. Sure it's not the greatest ventilated case. BUT it's SOOOOOO pretty!
That and it had possibly one of the greatest aesthetics and functions. Those locks are brilliant!
One can find it in my sig!
i shudder to think of a time when 120 mm was not the standard number. reminds me of that old horizontal under-the-screen type dell dinosaur of a case. takes a lickin and keeps on kickin construction but specs are so pathetic my head cant remember numbers that small anymore. proof of era: single 100mm fan in the front of the case, and a passively massive 90mm tall x 80mm wide CPU heatsink. integrated gpu is so pathetic it failed to keep running Google earth 'bout a year and a half ago. me being my incredibly ignorant self kept asking to have win7 downloaded onto it, (i was somehow sick of xp. now i occasionally want to go BACK, even on my good rig) andit takes forever just to friggen boot! i havent botherd turnig it on in ages.
Lian Li V2000
My current HAF X. SO easy to build inside it, LOADS of room, really clever case. Love it. Much better than my last Lian-Li.
No joke, for portability. Good quality. Ease of modding, my favorite would have to be the white nzxt source 210. Fits a 280mm and 240mm rad EASY!! Plus it doesnt dominate the room, love it. Previously had 800D LOL
HP's Blackbird 002 chassis. Not very practical due to its size, but nothing beats it in the looks department. Only change I would make would be to anodize/powder coat the interior black.
My 3 Favorite cases so hard to choose one
Apervia Qpack 2
Lian Li pc-tu200
Hands down HAF 932, looks like a beast, great cooling & loads of space.
TJ07 (sig) and Silverstone Raven RV02 are my top two.
The third slot is reserved for something as good as them
After using my HAF for about 3 years. I will say. It's earned it's place in my heart. It's a wonderful case if an ugly one.
But such a great case especially for its tiome.
Are we gonna see a couple of 900Ds on this thread soon? I think so.
The Silverstone SG06 has slowly grown on me after picking it up for an HTPC. The front panel is clean and understated, and the whole thing is almost the size of a loaf of bread. Could be better designed internally but it gets the job done well enough.
My new favourite case is the CaseLabs MAGNUM TX10-V
I might get one one day and rent it out as a spare room
Unknown case from -97 or -98. Huge, six 5,25" bays, easily could take dozen 3,5" drives with little modding, very heavy. Plain as hell tho. Sold by "Pomi" in finland.
Chieftec Dragon. Who didn't like this one?
Fractal Design Define R2/3/4. Popular one.
Thermaltakes Tsunami Dream. I loved the curved door but hated trying to fit a psu into the stupid narrow gap it was supposed to go into. It's under my bed with my old athlon x2 system still in it. I should do something with it.
Aero cool bay dream. It was the first case I found with an all mesh, all 5.25 drive bay front. I wanted one for ages but it was expensive and ten got discontinued. Then a few cropped up as clearance in some obscure online retailer for 35 quid and my friends and I all bought one for use as file servers.
Mine sits with 3x120mm fans down the front covering the 6 1.5TB disks and their peak temp is 18 degrees (usually 14-15 as the window is open for my tumble dryer vent). It's nothing special otherwise, just lots of cooling potential (3x80mm fan over the mono and internal drive bays) and a big exhaust. It currently has an Athlon x2 in it running at 2.7GHz that's passively cooled by a scythe ninja mini. It's just incredibly suited to what I needed it for.
I love my antec p182 too, but it's looking a bit old and battered and long in the toothe these days.
I wish they would remake it.
