It looks like there are a lot of people on this forum with high end photo editing machines. Just curious what case you selected for you build. I'm not a high end gamer so I'm thinking about buying a basic Corsair 200R $60 case for 4770K build.

What case did you select for your photo editing system and are you happy with it?

No case.. open bench! ;) I never have to move it, so.. better cooling and i can change pieces without having to pull off side panels, etc. With 7 HDD's running, the wiring in a case is a PITA. My last case..still have it, was the Coolermaster CM690 (original - circa 2008). It's a great budget case. Lot's of room, holds lots of 120mm fans. Room for a 2x120mm rad, if you want to watercool.

I just got so used to overclocking and in some O/C competitions, that i don't bother with a case anymore.
It doesn't have to be pretty for me.. function over form. :D

Went with the Coolmaster 932 Advanced. Very stout well ventilated full tower case, has a couple USB 3 connecters up front too which is nice.

Cooler Master HAF 922.
Tons of space. The only thing that would be nicer was if there was a little more room for cables on the right side of the case. It's a little tight with everything back there.

This seems to be an issue with all cases. Even with modular PSUs, there's still a slew of cables to tuck back there. Very frustrating for cable-management. :mad:

I just built an i7 4770k PC and used the Corsair 200R. Case suits my needs just fine. I dont game and just use it for editing and normal computer stuff. I will take a picture when i get a chance.
