    Dual

    Quad

    I like expansion slots great for my easy sway evo dual 2.5" ssd/ hdd usage
    I only need one cd/ dvd burner yes I use it for many items not exclusive to watching dvd movies but also dvd windows installers for all builds and also winpe recovery and creating and restoring system images
    Total waste of a flash drive for these things.

    Thanks Thrash, I like the design of the last two. Will look into them.
    Hi,
    Second one was seeing I need minimum of two expansion slots was my preference
    Never seen the perfect case but these are pretty close compared to the dated corsair offerings which I have two D450's it has two expansion slots but is a little too cozy for a full water loop

    I think I would consider the external Blu-Ray as CountMike suggested. Optical bays are really outdated and there are serious advantages not having them in the way in a case, like cooling options. I had to build my custom loop around the empty optical bay in my Corsair 450D and lets just say it was quite challenging!

    Why are you after a new case? You appear to have two good cases already. Are you planning to transplant one of your systems or is this a new build?

    Edit: The 750D - Great cases but also pretty outdated now. I love my Obsidian 450D but I would get something more modern if I were buying now.
    The Phantom 630 is even older and while aspects of it look nice it is dated. I am leaning now to not having front pages as there is so much more choice available.

    I have A Phanteks Luxe TG now and have had the Pro M and the Enthoo Primo. The Primo is the one Mike has and is the best all-around if you don't mind a large case. Most of their cases can be customized easily. Hard drive cages and the 5.25 bays can easily be removed. They are put in with screws, not rivets. In my opinion, Phanteks makes the best cases, although there is no such thing as the 'perfect' case.

    I think it depends on what you're looking for in cooling. Owning both Phanteks' Enthoo Luxe and Cooler Master's H500M, for strict air cooling I much prefer the CM H500M with it's unobstructed dual 200mm fans. The Enthoo Luxe features a single 200mm front fan, but its mostly obstructed by a front panel. In fact, I bought the Enthoo Luxe to replace my Cooler Master HAF X, but cooling wise it proved to be inferior, thus I instead replaced my HAX F with the H500M.

    So, as I said, it depends on your cooling needs. Here's a review I did on the Enthoo Luxe: Thoughts on Phanteks’ Enthoo Luxe PC case. Here's my H500M build.

    Now if your doing a custom water cooling solution well things are different there, and I would have used the Enthoo Luxe for that.

    Do you mean front cages? Like optical bays, HDD caddies? Anything modern should make those things removable/customize-able now. Is RGB important to you? Do you want to see RGB fans etc? The Lian Li 550 looks interesting, it offers a vertical GPU mount and tempered glass on all sides: Alpha 550 – LIAN LI And review: Lian Li Alpha 550X Case Review: Thermals, Noise, Build Quality, & Cable Management | GamersNexus - Gaming PC Builds & Hardware Benchmarks

    There are lot's more cases, we just need to know more about what you'd like and want to achieve.

    Looks like Phanteks are getting into water cooling too. Water blocks and even distribution plates.

    No, the front mounting bays for optical media. That Lian Li looks nice. Never had any of that make.

    I have not owned a Lian Li either but I'm planning to build in a Lian Li 011 Dynamic, it's a popular case for water cooling designed by Der8auer: PC-O11 DYNAMIC – LIAN LI There is an air flow version too: PC-O11 DYNAMIC – LIAN LI The Alpha 550 looks really nice and I considered that too. Have a look at Thermaltake cases, quite a range and I know people like them: Chassis - Products Another popular brand is Fractal Design. Yikes heaps to choose from!! Definitely read reviews on any potential case your interested in...
