    I looked at one like that but went with a Corsair Carbide because I wanted room for a horizontal disk drive.

    Only complaint is that the drives block a lot of airflow across the ram and MB. Could mount a fan in the top to fix that though.

    The new breed of cases are primarily designed to show off components. The glass case sides are a very poor design. With 5 large high performance fans installed correctly, the enclosure was 15 degrees F warmer than with the glass removed. I replaced the glass with a 200mm fan on a piece of aluminum replacing the glass. 15 degrees cooler.

    I haven't built in a long time, but always liked Antec. They had some nice, resonably-priced cases with quiet power supplies. Much goodness there.

    I can guess where those cases I linked are made. I wondered about US-made and did find this:

    Sub $100 I would definitely recommend an antec case. some are hit an miss, but most of them are pretty decent for the money. If someone is a bit more cash flush, Corsair cases are usually quite nice, and Lian Li high end cases often push the edge of innovation. Silverstone used to really innovate and push the limits, but they never quite got the execution quite right.

    Added more fans in a hurry and now I have to check all the connections. The new ones aren’t turning on. It was getting to hot to play Star Wars the old republic. The video would freeze and cut sense not play right

    You sure your gpu isn't having issues? Sounds like more than an issue with case fans

    It could. Although it ran with no problems in the old case. That’s why I thought it was a cooling issue with fans
