which to get Thermaltake Chaser MK-I or ARMOR REVO or do u know a better choice?

I want to get a new case and I narrowed it down to Thermaltake Chaser MK-I or ARMOR REVO or does anyone have a better choice?

The only thing I don't like about those cases is the intake fan at bottom of the case, coz this will suck all the dust and cotton from the floor, maybe around half a meter away, which mean the filter will have to cleaned pretty much around every two weeks.


Both cases seem to be the same except on the outer design.

Thanks

Not really a TT case fan, no pun intended

what particular hardware and cooling solution are you looking at, that may shed some insight on what your case requirements are ?

Not many think, but I am a firm believer that case selection is a very important part of any cooling solution be it, air, water or phase

It will always be air and the Hardware is in my signature expect that I have an ssd now and most likely a Maxwell video card in the coming months.

why not some from fractal design or CM?

the FD arc midi has some pretty decent flow.

edit: not a TT case fan either (lol)

Personally I like this case as an air solution and on sale it is at a great price point, Not sure where you buy at, but linked Newegg

By the way, the cases where the power supply are installed at the bottom, does it matter if the fan of the power supply is facing upwards or downwards?

Facing downwards the intake can pickup hair and dirt that can get stuck in the PSU. Facing up it blows air out of the case to the rear. I prefer the latter. If your case is like an an Antec 1100 the fan has a filter on the bottom to prevent dirt buildup in the PSU. This is what my main box uses.

If you're just doing air the Antec 1100 and 1200 are great choices. Not as flashy as some cases but very well built lots of cable management space and great air flow.

My wife is using a fractal Mid tower and it works great. The only thing I don't like is the mix of 140 and 120mm holes in it's slots. All spots have the ability to take 120mm fans but it leaves open gaps where the mounting holes for a 140mm fan can go. Only half the spaces in the case will take 140mm fans it's odd but has great air flow. I used 2 intake and 2 exaust fans and blocked theother 3 holes with homemade 145mm squares covering the fan holes.
