Recommended Posts

mobo: B650E Taichi Lite E-ATX with regular straight 24 pin connector, so cases like 4000D with wire cutouts, the 24p cable doesnt fit 'nicely'

cooling: top mounted 360mm AiO / or if possible (there arent many around a 420 AiO, but thats above my budget.

budget up to 120 euro maybe if it really good a bit more

 

it comes with 2 160mm fans on front and one 140mm back. I have plenty of fans, both white and black and RGB, still not sure what is best with this case, Full black n white build, full black non RGB or black with RGB. just want it to look decent. I will be using 3 fans on top with very dimmed white light so you can see the board. The board is black. I dont like RGB but i do like white light illuminating the build. Will the White case whit white AiO and black mobo with black and white braided cords look good, or a full black build looks better?

Meshify 2 for that price yes please, Here the Lite starts at 140 , the closed Meshify 2 starting at 150.  Ive only had a Fractal Design once years ago it was very low quality and plastic window etc.

 

I do like Phanteks but their budget cases look virtually the same as the high end and i already have 2 Phanteks. The problem with mine is i have 2 Grey colored ones and after only a few years the paint is completely dull , like smeared out finger stains and i cannot wash it of.

 

The Lian Li Lancool 216 ... hmm still not 100% sure but it does have all the features and its 100 euro for the black version with or without rgb.
