I have a lian li PC-A01B case right now which was modded to fit 3 hdd. it looked great in the entertainment center laid down flat. now, it stands on end beside the new entertainment center.
I now want to migrate the system to a bigger case so that i can add at least another 4 or 5 hdd..
Being right next to the entertainment center, noise is a factor. I am leaning towards the Corsair 550D and the Fractal Designs R4.
Both are taller than i would have liked, but dont see too many other options. Wider is no problem and could be even up to 200mm wide or more. It would match the bass box sitting on the other side.
I also cant get over the weight, another thing i will have to look past. 9lbs on the lian li, vs 17 on the corsair and 27lbs on the r4.
Any recommendations between the 2, or another case i have not considered?
note: the post above is my opinion. as such, when reading any recommendations from me, please do you research and seek out other recommendations and make up your own mind on your next course of action. i mean, most reasonable adults should know that, but it seems this should be stated anyways.
