I'm upgrading my PC this year, and I want it to have a new look on top of it since I like each upgrade to have it's own look. Right now I have the S340  case which is a really nice case, I really like it but it is a tad boring.

 

The problem is my standards in cases are super high, but I am also on a budget. Basically I'm looking for a miditower case, in roughly the same price range as the S340 but I can go like, 60% more. I've got a budget of 200 NZD for this new case, to make it simple.

 

I like cases that are unique enough but not stupid and overdone. Minimalist cases are perfect for me, trouble with those is they're never that unique. I also want one with good ventilation, a PSU cover and SSD mounts.

 

Cheers

I suggest you check the Cases category and see if there's anything you like: https://pricespy.co....hp?b=s313923237 Obviously there's plenty that are the basic boring case, but there's plenty of others too. Anything on that list should have at least one 2.5" drive bay (although there's probably a lot missed out that do have them) and has a lowest price of no more than $200 (which doesn't necessarily mean you can get it for that, of course).

 

What do you mean by a "PSU cover"? Having separate compartments for the PSU and the mobo? There is a filter "Heat zones" (under "General") that may help with that.

 

Most cases will have adequate ventilation, but may not come with many (or even any) fans.

 

Of course, if you really want something truly unique you could mod it, or build it from scratch!

Have a look at these cases, they don't all fit your requirements, but you might like them anyway.

Thanks! I actually found a case I really like, but thanks for giving me these because I might actually change to the Thermaltake View 27, it looks so nice!

Looks like an InWin knock-off.
