What's your favorite case to build in?

Post by Ghostwalker » Wed Jul 18, 2018 3:28 pm

Most everyone's got that one case that was just smooth as silk to build in. No gotchas, no bad fit because you didn't measure in advance and your gpu is the size of a SpaceX test vehicle... You get the idea.

What is/was your favorite?

So far for me it's been the Fractal Design Define XL R2.
I won this case in the raffle and did my first real mod in it.
Prior to this I had always bought sub-$100 cases from Thermaltake.
I LOVED working in it, it seemed so well thought out in regards to the design, component placement, case features, and super high quality. I have been a huge fan of Fractal Design ever since.

I really enjoyed building inside the Phanteks Evolv Shift. It's definitely larger than almost any Mini-ITX case, but it looks beautiful, and everything important is made of either metal or glass. It comes with velcro straps for wire management, and it can fit a giant GPU (I currently have a GTX 1080 Ti in it with room to spare).

Case Labs Merlin. So much room, it makes building really easy.

I prefer to be/think outside the rectangle.
Mountain Mods Twice Seven is my preferred case.
