Haven’t really looked at cases that closely in a while and recently discovered by cases fan controller seems to be shorting out my system and decided maybe it’s time to look at a new case. Figure to ask and see what people recommend. I don’t mind going full tower or mid tower but must be able to fit E—ATX I am using a CLC-360 for CPU cooling on a i9-10850 build with a 1300W PSU. I don’t mind a bit of noise but of course quieter is also better. Finally I don’t mind RGB lighting as long as it is controllable. Budget I am looking at is around $200-300 but might go a bit more. Luckily the case I have still works so I am not in a huge rush.

    I have been using Fractal Design cases for a few years and my current build is a Meshify S2 and I have two 360 rads in it with a x299 dark.  I am using a vertical mount for my 2080 Ti HC (which is eventually going into my wife's new Lian Li build).
     
    I really like Fractal Design cases and have not had a problem with them that wasn't caused by me and some of my modding.
     
    Here is a link:  https://www.fractal-design.com/products/cases/
     
    Hope this helps.

    I may have to get another full size case some day and then I will really miss  the  EVGA DG-85  oh wait mine is the 87  but the fractal one do look good.

    nice-
     
    You made me look up tempered glass :-)
     
    The main ingredient when chemically tempering is potassium nitrate, which is heated to about 400 degrees to make it liquid. The glass is chemically hardened by being immersed in the molten potassium nitrate bath for a certain amount of time.
     
    I wonder if computer case glass is Borosilicate glass which is better for temperature stress ?
    and any RF protection.  A Nova show said at one time lead was added to glass to make it CLEAR .
     
    I do have a Corsair case that looks a bit the same but smaller and my second  best liked build.

    Can anyone tell me about the NZXT 510 elite? I’ve heard the airflow is terrible but it looks great…
    Thanks!
