may or may not be your cup of tea, but ive ALWAYS liked these antec cases from the 2000-2005 era (timing may be a bit off)
there were so many cool cases, and for that matter, case mods that came out of those.....
that's a Antec SX1030b
there were some other versions of the same thing, without the drive bay door.... which always lost my interest....
man we sure have come a long way...i had to google those parts..but now i remember
I dunno man, I woulda went with some Delta 600000 decibel fans.... they were the shit! (for drowning out the parents)
I used to have a Xaser III fireball edition, was not a bad case, did get the paint to peel of by resting my leg on it all the time
inwin a500 or q500 and delta fans.
Lian Li PC-V1000 (or the bigger PC-V2000) is ~15 years old now and honestly hasn't dated much. It's still completely viable for modern builds in terms of cooling even.
I have this for sale if you're interested.
I remember those old Antec cases, I also had a SX1030b around 2002 or 2003. I had it fully loaded with fans because I was having a cooling problem, I think I was using Vantec fans and a Zalman cooler. But the noise got to me and when Antec released the Sonata cases, I switched to those and got into low noise computing. I guess today's equivalent would be Antec's P7 Silent which includes a throwback ODD slot for a real old style look. For me, I'm now using a NZXT H230 (which has sadly been discontinued) and a couple of Silverstone Grandia GD09 cases for HTPC applications and that old desktop look.
I am still using a thermaltake shark funny thing is that case has the best newest parts.
I have one of those sitting in my basement, unused.
I also have my current build in a Corsair 750D, and a server in a Rocketfish Full Tower (the all-aluminum one with the door).
Doesn't matter what case.. just make sure it's beige and you put in lots of high RPM 80mm fans to get that proper sound..
delta black labels. he can recreate the [H] blowhole cases.
Antec Sonata would like to have a word with you about that Beige requirement.
Too new... Try this
I always loved my Lian Li case from early 2000. I forget the model but it was very plain but very sleek looking.
Antec super lanboy? Lianli v1000b? or ChenMeng 601AE.
This would be your baby if you really want that look:
We got one with 14 5.25" bays for our p166+ Cyrix build back in the day. Weighs a ton! But really stands out as a no-nonsense case from that era.
I have two of them here at home and a few of them at work.
Complete old school system with an old school case straight out of the 2000s:
This thing has been on CL for better part of a year now. Always nice to look a the pretty pictures.
Chieftec Dragon case!!
I have the same CT Dragon in black in a closet.
Still using my LL V2000 case and have no problems with it. It's big, but plenty of room to do everything i may want to do. (Even if i shouldn't...lol)
Part of me still wishes i had invested in a Vapochill case once upon a time even though it probably would not have been the wisest investment.
My 2005 antec + 5x 80mm Sunon + 92mm no lable Loud AF fans.
I have one sitting in my shed, if you're into the retro vibe, checkout Raidmax Gama, it is the new Antec/Enermax case of the 2000's.
Old school! I remember these, I still have an old Antec in the basement I believe.
I have two Supermicro SC760 full tower cases. Very short front to back and really just a rectangle. I had one painted by a body shop and I still use it as my primary PC case. More of late 90s case.
I also have an Ultra Wizard aluminum case in blue and silver. It has an AMD athlon64 in it but hasn't been booted for like 6 years. Definitely early 2000's
