    Default I've found a home !

    After talking on guildchat about the wonders of z68 motherboards and all things shiny I found what has to be the front runner to replace my old Coolmaster stacker case.

    Check out the Antec P280

    If I do plump for a new case would be more than happy for a guildy to lay claim to my stacker case, although think it might be rather expensive to ship (its huge) See below image. So if you live in northern Scotland it won't be a problem !

    Ive got 2 p180's and a p190 for my father in law.
    Love em
    This new one looks great aswell.

    I am thinking of moving to a [URL="http://www.silverstonetek.com/product.php?pid=242&area=en"]Silverstone FT02[/URL] though if/when I get around to a new case.
    I'll see what the reviews of the p280 is before I make my mind up
    tbh, I could probably just do with new fans lol

    I don't think much of that case, HAF 922 all the way here, it's deceptively small on the outside while being massive on the inside, it's like the tardis, it also looks big and chunky and like it means business.

    but for me buying a case is all about air flow, doors on the front (like it looks like you you linked has) just get in the way, you want something like the HAF 922 where the entire front is mesh and has a massive fan there, also MORE FANS!!! but even then the HAF case uses mainly 140 and 200mm fans, so they make next to no sounds but have a massive amount of airflow, not to mention mounting space for even 120mm radiators.

    Do you have dust filters on that Bel ? The stacker case has a door with plenty slots milled out and two 120mm fans blowing air in. It also has side mounted room for another 4 120mm fan although I can only use 3 due to the Titan Fenrir that is cooling my cpu. I also have another 120mm in the roof and of course one at the back.

    The down side no dust filters although they could be retro fitted easily enough I suppose.

    Does the 922 have a slide out mobo tray? I must admit its my favourite feature of the stacker.

    One more point on my current case, my brother came round to check it out when I built it and said to me " Oh cool you've got you're initials on the power on button" Its not my initials you tube! It stands for "Cooler Master"...lol cracked me up.
