  1. Hi, I want to get a new case with good airflow, which of these two cases do you think would be best?

    Case 1: http://www.xcase.co.uk/product-p/case-x-case-defender.htm

    Case 2: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/281082198519?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

    They both has a front, rear and side fan, the difference is that one has a large side fan and one has a 120mm side fan, the one with the small side fan however also has a top exhaust fan where the other doesn't

    I don't know which would be best.

    The ebay one has better airflow and potential, while the red case just dumps air on top of the mobo.

    I'd go with the ebay one.

    I would get a new Corsair 200R instead of those cases you chose. I dont trust eBay for PC components. Heck, it is a case yes, but it is better to buy these components new and from reputable sources.

    I agree with JC713, get the 200R, it's built solidly and has great airflow. Corsair has again come up with the definitive solution for the price range (~$50).
    PC nerd and JC713 like this.
