    Hey Guys,

    Can you tell me what you think or have experience with these cases, they are all similar to me, similar prices range also.

    corsair 275R
    nzxt H500
    Phanteks Eclipse P300
    Corsair Carbide Series 400C

    I have decided everything else for my new build.
    Im planning on getting RGB fans but not going overboard.
    Any other recommendations sub £100 are welcome also, cheers!

    Very happy with my P300. It's well built, cable management options are good. I added a PWM front fan set to quiet in my motherboard UEFI, dropped graphics card temp by about 10 degrees under load while adding almost no noise. The RGB lighting has connectors to allow you to expand it with the Phanteks kits. My previous build was in a NZXT S340, which I also liked the design of but felt the build quality was a bit shonky on.

    Thanks for your responses, still undecided thus far, basically looking for the best sub £100 case!

    Out of interest what is your setup and general temps? I am considering this case for aesthetics but don't want a hot noisy system either. Sorry to hijack the thread a bit

    Setup is:
    Ryzen 5 2600
    NZXT Kracken x62
    Gtx 1070ti

    temps on the cpu average around 40 to 50c under load and gpu depends on the game.

    The air exiting the case is always cool with the 2 pre installed 120mn exhaust fans.

    Airfow in to the case comes from the right front of the case which does seem to pull a lot of air in
