Looking For A New Case

So in the process of modernizing one of my rigs I have decided that I am interested in embracing the tempered glass look that's popular these days. I currently have an NZXT H440 and while i do still like the case, I feel like it could be updated as it is 3 years old, missing a lot of pieces, and had a couple of things broken, etc.

I could go with one of my go to cases which is the NZXT S340 Elite, or going higher and getting something like the Corsair Crystal 570X. but I am also open to suggestions. However, any case suggestions must match ATX sizes and the maximum my cabinet can hold would be equivalent to a Phanteks Enthoo Pro which is 21.06" x 9.25" x 21.65".

This is my PC currently (NOTE: I already have all this and am not looking for a new build, just a new case):

- NZXT H440 White
- EVGA Supernova G2 750W
- Asrock X370 Taichi
- AMD Ryzen 7 1700
- Noctua NH-D14 (will be upgrading to Corsair H115i soon)
- Corsair Vengeance DDR4-3000 16GB
- Corsair Neutron XT 480GB SSD
- Western Digital Caviar Blue 2TB SSD
- Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB HD
- Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970 (will be upgrading to 1070TI soon)

Cases I am considering (and would prefer available in white, and can be slightly flexible on color, but do not want black):

- NZXT S340 Elite White
- Thermaltake View 31 RGB
- Phanteks Enthoo Evolv Glass
- Corsair X570 RGB
- Fractal Design Meshify C
- In Win 805 White

So if anyone has any opinions or alternate suggestions let me know.

    The thing I would be worried about with an all glass case would be transporting it.

    Very true , would be delicate.

    Other choice I like is the Inwin , well made very solid cases.
  4. I too vote for the inwin 805

    Ordered my new Z370 and CPU for my View 31.
  7. i vote fractal - surprise... but i would not go meshy.. nevermind, your choice...
  8. The view 31 which retails for 70 bucks seems to be a great deal. But otherwise it's the Inwin for me.

    I love the 805 Infinity but it's quite a bit out of my price range.

    They look solid to me if you need a white case.

    Yeah I really like the white DG-76. I might make a trip to Micro Center to check some of these out.

    give him a "workshop" as the gift - he shall learn to build rigs himself... this is the way more valuable gift, as he learns for life! ;)
