Hi,

I'm currently assembling pieces to make a new pc.

I am looking for a full ATX case with plenty of cooling options.

Where is the best place (around Auckland) to find one???


Cheers

Well, I built a PC and bought myself a nice case from http://www.qmb.co.nz
I can highly recommend their quality service, fast postage if you're ordering over the web, and they even accept bank-deposit payments!

They have a nice range of stylish cases, at a very competitive price.
I bought myself a case from them at $70 odd and it keeps my components nice and cool :)

Cheers

I use the Vacum cleaner on blow function :-)
It's cheap & effective.
Cheers Steve

a couple of my favorites here (http://www.ascent.co.nz/mn-product-spec.asp?pid=106575), here (http://www.ascent.co.nz/mn-product-spec.asp?pid=104092) and here (http://www.overclockers.co.nz/product/case/index.shtml). there are heaps of cheapo cases around but you usually get what you pay for.

I like this one (http://www.overclockers.co.nz/product/case/ocnz/DRII-2.jpg). *thread hijack* Is it worth paying for something that has been pre-modded? Or is it more worth the hassle to DIY?

BTW - I'll always recommend Procase (http://www.procase.co.nz/) for std cases. They've got a great selection.

depends......most case modders like to do the actuall work themselves, thats half the fun of it. however for those who just want a cool case its better to go buy a pre modded one.

Pre-modded cases.

Well they're good if you're lazy and don't mind having a modded case the same as a lot of people out there.

Yeah - quoting someone elses post containing links seems to do that here... it grabs all the html to include as well, stuffs them up.

Also have a look at www.procase.co.nz

Altho you can't buy them from there, some1 may be able to supply them.

i have a packard bell computer...and looking at these cases i guess i could save up for one myself..but...can i "swap" cases or are there limitations?

it depends a bit. most are easy to swap. however some copaqs,hp's etc can be a sod to do due to the proprietry parts. some have psu's which you can't change, front ports which will require modding to fit into new case, half height cards, right don to non-standard motherboards

I like Icute cases. Very good case fan options and power supplies.

Just MY 2cents worth.

You might also try Hyena.
