Thread: PC case with good airflow under 7K

  1. #1

    Default PC case with good airflow under 7K

    I'll be shopping for a new chassis that has good airflow, preferably something that doesn't have tempered glass side panel. The budget for this is 7K. Some people have suggested to get NZXT S340 but I am not sure how good is the airflow in that case, it is also out of my budget. Kindly suggest me a good case in this budget. Also, how many fans (except for the rear exhaust fan) installation would you suggest to keep the inside temperature of the chassis relatively cool?

    Antec P110 Luce @6.8k, Good airflow with adequate dust filters

    @Ghost Riley: Thanks. Antec P110 Luce is listed as 7.3K on Startech, so I guess it can be bought for around 7K. This is a nice chassis but I am really on the fence about buying a PC case with tempered glass side panel. The panel looks pretty but I wish it was acrylic. Is there any good case with acrylic side panel available in the market?

    I am using antec P110 Luce. Pretty Good casing. you can find it @6.8k. Pure temper glass side panel. Don't go for any acrylic side panel.The first disadvantage of using acrylics is that it scratches more easily than glass. after some day using, you will discover a lot of scratch on it.

    @Ghost Riley: I know that acrylic panels get scratch marks easily but what about tempered glass being prone to spontaneous breakage? I've read that a tiny crack is enough to make it explode.

    Is your house full of little kids running around kicking around footballs, throwing things and bumping into stuff? If yes, then your PC case glass is in the exact same risk of breaking as your TV panel or showcase glass. If no, then no. The TG won't break spontaneously if you keep your case on your desk steady (as it should be)

    that issue has been blown out of proportion, scratches r a bigger problem

    tempered glass>acrylic for resistance to scratches

    if ur pc is gonna be hit with such force as to crack tempered glass, i'd be more concerned abt wats going on around the pc


    source: have been using acrylic and tempered glass panels since forever
    Loved by few,
    Hated by many
    But respected by all!!

    I've found some posts online about tempered glass side panel exploding by itself. These users mentioned that the tempered glass side panel of their case just exploded all of a sudden, according to them they didn't hit the panel with anything. It seems odd to me, glasses aren't suppose to shatter like this.

    Some examples:

    An exception case can't be an example, I am using TG casing since 2016, never experienced anything like this.
