What's the better case? NZXT Phantom, Obsidian 800D or 650D?

post #1 of 11

Hey,

I'm wondering what's the best case in terms of quality and I'm also wondering which would provide the best air cooling? I.E: are the 200mm fans going to make a big difference?

The 800D, Phantom or the 650D?

in terms of aircooling:

800D = crap at air
650D = good, but not the best
Phantom = Its up there, better than the 650D, but not the best, HAF and RV/FT are the next step up

Doesn't water cooling require regular upkeep?

Which is the best out of those? I'm looking at all of them on NewEgg right now and I can't figure it out

I'm thinking the Haf 932 Advanced because it has 3x 230mm fans and 1x 140mm fan, but maybe the best would be the Haf-X which has 1x 230mm fan, 3x 200mm fans, 1x 140mm fan, and 1x 120mm fan for the airduct. Or perhaps the RV02BW which has 3x bottom 180mm intake fans and 1x 120mm exhaust.

I'm sooo confused
