Best ATX desktop case?

Postposted on Sat Jul 13, 2002 5:17 am

Background: right now, I have a bigtower case standing below my desk, and a stack of Hi-Fi components on top of it. I want to put my workstation in a desktop case, and stack it and the audio components below my desk, freeing up valuable desk surface space.

So what's the best ATX desktop case? The general layout is the same with all of them, but is there any one case that sets itself apart, either through a temp-controlled PSU or some other nifty feature or general high-quality-ness?

Right now, I'm looking at the following cases:
AOpen HT95 (~€ 70)
Enlight EN-7200 (~€ 100)
In-Win H500 (~€ 80)

The Coolermaster ATC-600 looks awesome, but I'm not paying €300 for a case.

Of the above, the In-win is less attractive cause it has only two 5.25" bays. Any idea how the AOpen and Enlight stack up? Am I overlooking an excellent case from another manufacturer? A cheap-yet-good (oxymoron?) rackmount case would also be viable.

I have a system with the Enlight 7180-AK desktop case and love it. It's a nice balance between compactness and expandability. I got it for a nForce MB and so ffar no problems.

So I can definitely give a thumbs-up for Enlight.
