hi, im building a computer soon and im just wondering what case everyone thinks i should get. i will be using an amd fx 8150 processor and do not plan to overclock. noise is a big issue in the choice of the case as i will be leaving it on overnight sometimes.

i have 3 cases currently in mind however i am open to suggestions.
Thermaltake overseer RX-1 air cooled £115
Thermaltake chaser MK-1 air cooled £120
Thermaltake chaser MK-1 water cooled £150

so which one would you guys pick or which case do you think is better than all three? £150 is the very top end of my budget however do you think this is worth getting? it seems a bargain to me.

thanks.

Since you're not planning on over-clocking, water cooling is a complete waste of time. It's more expensive and more prone to problems.

Mount the HDDs with rubber washers so they don't make a noise when they vibrate against the rig.

Is the computer going to be idling or working overnight? If just idling, I suggest the Chaser MK-I because it has a fan speed adjuster, so you can turn the fan low when you're not actively using it.

i bought the liquid cooled chaser mk-1 today for £130, ill be honest, mainly because it looks good :P. However i did think it was an amazing deal since the air cooled one the cheapest i could find was £115. Also i think once i build my own computer i will look into overclocking and other things :) maybe i will just slightly overclock to be safe :). Do you think 130 was a good deal?
