Hi CH guru's

Just looking for some info. I'm building a new rig and I've come across two cases that im looking at buying an Antec Dark Fleet DF-85 Gaming Case and a Thermaltake Olive Drab Level 10 GT Battle Edition Colourshift Full Tower Chassis. Any ideas guys?

All I can say is that I have been very pleased with my Antec case (Antec 300). Not only is it the entry tower for Antec, but it has the best airflow of any case I have ever owned. It keeps everything I have running at exceptionally low temperatures at load. The downside, if the AMD HD 8970 turns out to be longer than the AMD HD 7970 then I finally need to upgrade my case. My 7970 card turned out to be longer than my 6950, and it is about as much as I can put into the case. When I do upgrade though, I am fairly confident that Antec is the way I will go.
After taking a look at your selections I can see that you are definitely looking to go high end. My only word of advice would be to look closely at the lower level cases. They do not always have each and every bell and whistle as the flagship cases do, but I think you may find adequate space and cooling at a lower cost. Not certain if this one is available in your region, but this Cooler Master case rated pretty high and falls in the mid price range here in the U.S.: Link

In fact, that Cooler Master case may have even sold me on an upgrade!

One of my mates just got the Antec DF-85 the other day and it is awesome. The airflow is amazing everything kept nice and cool and it's pretty quiet even with all 7 fans going. There's plenty of room inside and we were able to get the cabling the tidiest I've ever seen.

Antec are a good brand (I also have the 300) and I would personally go for them.

Also the Thermaltake is the ugliest case I've seen for ages.

Antec Eleven Hundred!

But its expensive lol


If you are a fan of the Borg, Thermaltake has this kick ass sell your kidney to buy case.

Thermaltake Level 10 GT Battle Edition.

Its one of these latest in open cases, where drive bays etc are sort of in the air and not enclosed in a case.

But areas where fans will be are enclosed to reduce noise. Pretty clever case, hell of expensive though lol

@DABhand

Yeh man, when Im splashing out im splashing, that case looks pretty nifty. I'm seriously thinking of either of those two.

My acer predator though is bright orange with a knarly front swing that makes the case look like the predators mask. Sorta crazy.

Seen the 1100 and for about same price the 1200 is the next step up, good amounts of fans with the case to help cool things, and its a full ATX case so the width of it from back to front will take any long ass GPU.

And because the HDD drive bays are turned 90 it gives even more room for PCI-e GPU Cards in the future.
