I'll be looking for a new case in the next month. I'm looking to buy a h100 with the case. My budget for both is roughly 300. So 200 for the case. I could increase a that if it is worth it.

I'm looking for excellent cable management, cooling, and I want it to look decent.

I currently have a half 912 and cooling wise and size wise it just isn't meeting my needs.

I love my Antec 1200.

Had 3 470s in Tri-SLI and they stayed cool without a problem.

Do you know if a h100 push pull will fit?

This guy used the Phantom and the Corsair H100 to do a push/pull config with the top 200mm fans and the 2 120mm's on the H100:

I got the Phantom full tower today. Fantastic cooling and cable management.

Sexy as hell to boot ;)

Yah I saw it at what used to be Tiger Direct and was blown away at how awesome it looked. The only better case I have seen is the Geek Box Ego Manical case, but sadly the base case was discontinued and they no longer make them :(

I'm really torn between the full phantom(new eggs edition black and orange) the 810 and the white 600t.

Imma look at some YouTube videos and try to prepare some pro and cons between them.

One word of warning about the phantom though, it's freaking huge!
