Hey guys. I currently have an Antec 900 case but I've recently realised it's really big and makes extremely bad use of its internal volume. So right now I'm looking at selling my Anten 900 for around £60 - £70 in order to buy a new case. Currently my three choices are;

 

Aerocool Aluminium

Aerocool White

 

http://www.alternate...Telum/1021883/?

 

CM Storm Scout 2

Any help would be much welcomed and the power supply must absolutely be mounted at the bottom of the case.

 

 

 


Main Rig: Q6600 @ 3.0GHz (333x9) | Zalman CNPS9900 | 4GB DDR2 667 | ATi Radeon HD 5770 | Antec 900 (1st Gen) | 600W Thermaltake

Portable: Core i5 @ 2.4GHz | 8GB DDR3 1600 | Intel HD 3000

    Of course it will fit, I have power tools.

Not sure what you mean by better use of internal volume, the 2 aerocool ones look to have the same layout just fancier drive mechanisms and maybe a little better wire management options (and painted). I still use my old 900 for my backup system, though I've always kind of liked the looks of the case, just painted the inside and it made a big difference on looks, have been thinking about modding the side window a little more (I took the fan part out and just glued the screen in.)

I would get the Aerocool Aluminum because of esthetics and the bays are well situated in the design.

I'd go with the CM scout 2, looks good and has nice internal volume or in otherwords, spacey :P
