Hi,

I currently have a CM Storm Stryker case. Although I very much like this case I feel I need a change for two very important reasons.

1) I'd like a case that has a side panel fan mount as my GPU blows hot air directly toward the side panel and I'd like to be able to mount a exhaust fan there.

2) My GPU has very bright LED lights on the side which are giving me migraines so I would like to change to a case without a side window.

So far I've looked at and am very interested in the Corsair Carbide 500R.

Any thoughts and suggestions will be very much appreciated!

My budget is around 100-150.

Thanks
Paul

If you don't use Throwback Mode for a full week while logged in, you will lose access.

Sounds to me like you'd just be better off getting a different GPU without crappy LEDs.
