Best Value case

Recommended Posts

I have chosen the following components for my build:

CPU: Intel Core i7-6700 3.4Ghz 8MB Cache *Quad Core* 2000Mhz Socket LGA1151 CPU Retail Boxed - (p/n: BX80662I76700)

Socket 1151 Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H170M-D3H Socket LGA1151 microATX

OR  Gigabyte Z170M - D3H


Which do you think?


DDR4 Memory: Kingston HyperX FURY 16GB (2x8GB) PC17000 DDR4 (2133Mhz) Memory CL14-14-14 - (p/n: HX421C14FB2K2/16)

CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212X - Processor cooler - (Socket LGA775 LGA1156 AM2, AM2+, LGA1366 AM3, LGA1155 AM3+, LGA2011 FM1, FM2, LGA1150 FM2+) - aluminium - 120 mm - (p/n: RR-212X-20PM-R1)

Optical Drive: Asus DRW-24D5MT 24x Dual Layer Multi-Format (Black) SATA DVD-Writer

Serial ATA Drive: Samsung 850 EVO MZ-75E250 - Solid state drive - 250GB - internal - 2.5" - SATA 6Gb/s - buffer: 512 MB - SED

Power Supply Unit: Zalman ZM750-EBT - 80 PLUS Gold 750W ATX 


Install existing GPU 


Install existing HDD WS 1TB


The case is proving harder to decide, between:


Cooler Master Silencio 352 (Black) Mini-Tower Case *Front Audio & USB

SilverStone SST-PS07B
Corsair Carbide 200R or 300R

Corsair Obsidian 350D


Any thoughts don't  want to go over the top neither skimp.


I also am not sure about my PSU choice.


I am in New Zealand and our prices are plus 50%

Welcome to CM forum.


All i can say is get Cooler Master product ... 


Silencio 352 is great case ... Can support the board as you mention .. but unfortunately cannot support the cooler ( Hyper 212x = 158mm) due limit height meanwhile the chasis is only support 155mm height


for the Psu GM class is good choice for you :




Hope this can help .
