Need recommendations on which case is the best at fan cooling for under or around the £60 mark. Will be running a 3570k overclocked so need to keep things as cool as poss.
Would like it windowed too.
So far thinking:

Cm HAF 912 plus
Zalman z11
Cm 690 II
Gigabyte GZ G2

Any input or recommendations?

Thanks

Corsair Carbide 300R?

Z9+? It's loaded with fans, and cheap.

People have been using the 690II and the 912 for donkey's without issue. Any decent case will do OK tbh.

YOUR BASKET
1 x Zalman Z9 Plus Tower Case with Fan Controller - Black £46.98
Total : £58.08 (includes shipping : £9.25).



best value entry level case imo.
4 fans, fan controller, temp reader as standard.
only thing is that it doesnt have usb 3 ports out at the front.

of course, if you dont need to buy from ocuk, a quick google for the z9-u3 (the version that has usb 3 ports) should show you which etailer sells them.

I used the Antec 300 for a recent build for a mate, and I have to say I'm really impressed with it for £44.99. Build quality is good and it cools well.

The spare cash left over from £60 could buy some nice fans.

But since your budget is more, you could look at someof the coolermaster cases. EDIT: Maybe not, most good ones appear to be over £60 these days.

Funnily enough I went with the z11. Want to run an est t40 cooler and thought the z9 would be too narrow.

Thanks for your help.
