Hi, I'm currently in the process of building my first PC

Below are my 4 shortlisted cases which I have chosen due the my budget and the store that I will be buying from.

Out of the 4 listed cases, which one would be the best case?

you want to have a filter on the intake fan as it is where the most dust will come in, filtering the exhaustr just keeps dust in the system.

filter on top of case only handy if that is where you going to intake air, it doesn't seem to have any intake on front

For the exit of the hot air, you can place two fans at the top and you can also put two fans on the front for fresh air intake. But the problem is that there is no any space on the front, from where fresh air will come in. There is only a small space on the bottom for air intake, which I think not sufficient for good air flow. Yes, you can solve this problem using extra fans and reverse air flow technique, but it requires extra effort and money.

review of the coolermaster unit from an owner - link
Thank you for sharing these reviews, they were really helpful.

The lack of cable management options for the the coolermaster is a big no no for me. I will using a non modular PSU, so the build is going to look messy and aesthetics are very important for me.

Now for the the Antec. aesthetically, it looks very nice, but i live in Thailand where ambient temps can get very high, so I do worry about the Airflow problems with this case., which makes me think that i should dump the idea with this case too.

What I did find, is a case that I like a lot, which would cost around 400 THB = 13USD more than the other two.
it's the Antec DP310M Links below and thoughts please?

i don't like any of them for cooling but then I tend to spend too much on my cases :)

Good you thinking about cooling, and not just want a fish tank with led lights on it - what I see most cases as now

Antec has filters on top and bottom but not front? ITs like they know people want filters but not why and where they should be.

can you get this one?
https://www.corsair.com/uk/en/Categories/Products/Cases/Carbide-Series™-SPEC-M2-MicroATX-Gaming-Case/p/CC-9011087-WW - way more airfolow through its front compared to the one you showed. Has a filter on the front as well.

both only have 1 fan installed so you will want at least 2 more for either case


spending more on case so it keeps everything cool makes sense to me.

Since you live in a country where it will be pretty warm most of the time, I would look for a mid tower (or even a full tower) case with a mesh front panel that supports 2 front intake fans and possibly even a side panel intake fan.
Those coupled with a rear and top exhaust fan should help keep your PC as cool as possible.

Hi there,

I could not find the exact same model as the one you showed me, but i did find one very similar made by Corsair, which is the SPEC 01

Price = 1304 THB = 43 USD / 35 GBP ( Linke below ) What do you think?

Case on website was only showing 1 front fan, this video was only showing 1 front fan but he says half way through you can put 2 fans in front


You are one who has to use it, do you like it?

looks wise, I think it looks pretty okay, but if it can produce better airflow than the Antec, then I think it would be a wiser choice... both cases are evenly priced. I prefer the look of the Antec, but I guess practicality and good airflow is more important as I live in a warm climate

The parts might last longer, it might not be as flashy as others but I don't spend a lot of time staring at my case. I much prefer cool parts.

I would watch other videos on the case and any others, its how i figure out which are worth getting or not. I do it with every part I buy. Cases are the hardest part for me as mine is still pretty good and IF i had to pick a new one now, I wouldn't know what to get.. maybe the RL06 I suggested above (only as my last 2 cases have been silverstone)
