Hi,

I am going to buy a new case for my system however i found some by own which i found cool but i don't know much about cases.

My location is India, Following is the list which i found:-

Corsair Spec 06 - 8000INR ( approx 110 USD )
Aorus C300 Glass - 7200 INR ( approx 96 USD)
Thermaltak H200 - 5500 INR ( approx 73 USD)

Here is my system specs:-

CPU: i5 4th gen
Motherboard: Gigabyte H61
RAM: 6GB (going to upgrade too)
GPU: Aorus RX580 8GB
PSU: Antec EAG Pro 750W Gold

I really love the look of the Corsair Spec 06 but it is the most expensive one in the list above.

My Maximum budget is 8000INR(110 USD), less than would be awesome. My preference is good looks and air flow.

Thanks

I am currently looking for a case myself, everyday its a different one I am going to buy. So I am probably not best person to answer :)

airflow and you look at 3 cases with solid fronts?

odd tech specs don't mention fan placement or how many can be put in. Rad support mentioned though - https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Categories/Products/Cases/SPEC-06-RGB/p/CC-9011146-WW#tab-tech-specs

tbh, I would get one you like look of as if you have to use it for a few years, it might as well look nice

I am in Australia, i would have thought you want a mesh fronted case so it could breath and exhaust air better.

lots of cases look good, all it takes is glass everywhere and rgb lights and most people are happy.

My first 2 PC just had boxes, I never gave them any thought and its probably why I can't remember what my 2nd one looked like. Next case I got was from LIan LI and spoiled me, as once you had a nice case its hard to go back. My last 2 cases have cost more than some other parts of the PC, and now it is actually the last part of a new build I am trying to put together. It will be the hardest part for me. For my current PC I am using, I knew what case I had wanted years before. Its not so easy now.

I think you are right about others two, both have good looks but almost same features as H200. BTW Thanks for the info. Really appreciate :)
