Im not satisfied with the 600T's AC performance, My 2600k with silver arrow idles around 35c and in the high 50s stock. Which is higher than i would like it to be before OC. I did a uick OC last night and the chip was about 90c at load which is high. so im itching for an upgrade and those choices are what i came up with so far.

i heard some people so that the performance between the rv02/ft02 are similar to HAF x series. and some people say there's a bigh difference.

i want your opinion!!

thanks!

I own the original HAF 932 and it has a butt-ton of air flow. My sig rig never gets above 49 Celcius on the CPU and the GPU's Haven't breached 60 Celcius

I own the RV02 limited edition with the AP181 fans, I can't give you a definite temp for that one yet. I'll let you know tomorrow when my remaining parts arrive for the RV02.

Edit: I also have these located in a basement as well. So you're results may vary.

650D-same as 600T, no upgrade here
FT02/FV02-I believe these are the best, but no room for WC. proven performers in AC
HAF-X/932 Advanced-good, slightly worse than FT02/RV02

BUT, I think you should do some fan modifications to your 600T first, swap out the window for the included side mesh fan mounts, buy a nice powerful 200mm front (1x) in front, swap out the rest of the 120mm fans for AP14 or AP15 Gentle Typhoons (7x), take out one hard drive cage for better front airflow.

Even though I'm currently using a HAF 932 BE, and likin' it, I have to say that white Corsair you got now is one fine-lookin' case.
Seems a shame to replace it just yet.
I have to agree with sombodysb2, make those fan mods and use the mesh door as he suggested. That's gotta raise the airflow big time.
I always like to remove the hd cage for better airflow, been doing that on all of my cases for several years now, whether they are riveted or not.
Not a big deal for me though, as I only use one hd.

well I agree that the 650 would be no different. RV02 is a good case limited.FT02 are a very nice case BUT Really no different to the RV02. So that leaves the HAf X and HAF 932 I would go with one of those 2

If you want airflow - HAF-X is your choice.

HAF X comes with air filters, the HAF 932 does not. Go for the HAF X
