    I'm looking for a double wide case. What are my options?

    I had this question in the past here: https://hardforum.com/threads/recommend-me-a-very-large-pc-case.1819089/. I got the Lian Li PC D600.

    Again I'm looking for a new case for a new system I'm about to build, and like the last one it will have a full size ATX, with lots of drives and accessories.

    My next PC case has to be double wide. With Caselabs and Danger Den gone it seems my only options are LIan Li, Mountain Mods, and Thermaltake. Are there other options?

    While I can't specifically comment on most double wides, I will say that I used the Thermaltake View 71 for my recent build and it is very good quality wise. Even the plastic parts of it fit well with little vibration and noise. Coming from a Phanteks Enthoo Luxe I was pretty impressed with this Thermaltake after not using their cases for a LONG time. I admittedly had a very poor impression of Thermaltake in the past and was greatly surprised with the View.

    I have owned one of the Caselabs double wides. They are nice cases but there's no comparison to some of the newer more common ones in terms of cable management and sound deadening etc. The Case Labs shined in interior room and flexibility, but I had to go to great lengths to keep that thing quiet and vibration-free.

    Just my personal experience. I wouldn't hesitate to check out the Thermaltake double wides if they're anywhere close to as well built and layed out as the View 71 is. Unless you're doing something rare and really custom.

    Agreed! The Thermaltake Core W200 looks very nice. That case and the Mountain Mods Extended Ascension Cyo.
