Is there any practical reason to buy a newer case, now that I'm upgrading/changing out parts? I've been thinking maybe a case without a door so I could add an LCD temperature display or something, but I don't know that I'd use that over software. I've been re-using the same old Xion black/blue steel ATX case in various budget systems for myself for years, with different PSUs depending on need (one died) and have never had any space or cooling issues, though I don't do anything too extreme to create heat. If I had to guess I'd say my case is from 2008. It has no damage to it (maybe scuffs on the window if you look hard?) Are there newer equivalents with some advantage or feature or anything that might be worth a thought?
Has anyone owned or experienced either of these two cases? I'm torn in half. :S Danger Den Torture Rack Bob Slay V2 from MountainMods Torture Rack - Definitely has the air cooling advantage what with 8x120mm, but is this just overkill honestly? Bob Slay V2 - Seems comparable. 5x120mm fans seems good enough, no? - 5.75" clearance for heat sink (can't seem to find the clearance on the DD) - UV reactive blue is an unnecessary but oh so enticing plus. Purdyness factor +1. - 1/4" acrylic, seems sturdy enough. Can't find specs of acrylic thickness for the DD. Any experience/opinions? Much appreciated.
