the 450d is just too small. after looking at the 750d then looking at the 450d it just doesnt cut it!
ive always liked the 750d af edition, my vote. a little bit old looking but not enough to be ugly. it just looks like it runs cooler and faster!
the pro m you cant go wrong with it. there are so many sweet versions of it now. if you cant find one that works, well thats on you.
the only one i wouldnt consider is the 011air. it looks old fashioned, like its a ten year old design. now the dynamic on the other hand looks sleek but absolutely contained.
enjoy your new case!

I am absolutely in LOVE with the 011 Dynamic. I don't care for that...thing...they put on the front of the air though.
The Enthoo pro...I mean...who uses 5 1/4 bays now days? And if you remove them, you're still stuck with the covers. Now if I wanted to put an LCD in there...or a reservoir them maybe.
They whole obsidian series just looks generic to me. But if you don't care about the aesthetics...it'll do donkey.
The Pro M looks nice, lots of space...if I cant talk you into the Dynamic, I might look at that.

In order of preference:
Lian Li PC-011 Dynamic (I'm still trying to convince you)
Phanteks Pro M (my vote)
Obsidian 750D (If aesthetics are not important)

The rest can take a hike.

No reset switch on the Lian Li 011? Wow. Was certainly considering that case but without the a reset switch its useless. Too bad all the old dogs like Lian Li & CoolerMaster make cheap plastic crap now days.

CoolerMaster CM500 Gets my vote.

Oh common now....when was the last time you used a reset button. Hold the power for 5 seconds.....Bob's your uncle. :p

If I use the power button, then the MB thinks the OC failed, and resets everything to defaults. So I Have to go into the bios and turn everything back on.

Thanks for all feedback, Ive added Lian Li PC-O11DX 011 Dynamic to the poll choice.

Right now its between Lian Li PC-O11DX 011 Dynamic and Enthoo Pro M Black/White version with Tempered Glass. After watching system builds and reviews on youtube, on the Lian Li PC-O11DX 011 Dynamic I may need to get better fan filters if I decide to go with that case since the stock ones are extremely restrictive. Otherwise both cases are great, even the Lian Li Dynamic for air cooling.

Some good info:

Enthoo Pro M:




Lian Li PC-O11DX 011 Dynamic

in that case i would have to change my vote from the 750d to the 011 dynamic. both are still among my favorites but the 011d is in the top 5. maybe not the best aircooled rig but by far one of the sexiest.
hard to believe only 8 people have voted...

Ok. Ok...that's fair. But surely not the norm.

Given the recent update, I changed my vote as well. I'm glad to see you've seen the light. :p

If it wasn't so expensive, i'd say consider this if you like Lian-Li. Beautiful case, thin and stylish, but not cheap..... :greedy: Lian Li-PC-07SX

This is the case for my next build.

i'm a huge fan of the enthoo pro.. i went with the windowless one though. wasn't expecting much for how cheap it was compared to similar cases but this things rock solid. only pain in the butt part was taking the top of the case apart to put my liquid freezer 240 in. way to many screws to deal with but went in pretty easily after i kept screwing up and putting the fans in the wrong directions and had to take it apart 3 different times, lol. i'd say my only true complaint with the case is being able to access the filters.
