help finding similar but cheaper case than Corsair 650D

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I have a 2yr old daughter now and the janky cut I made at the top of my Nzxt Hush is a bit of a liability now. I keep thinking she's going to short circuit my comp one day by pouring chocolate milk down the top. I know most of these cases have slots for top fans now but I can block them easily.

I was looking at cases and the Corsair 650D seems real nice but is a bit out of my price range. Do you guys know of anything with the same/similar quality but a bit cheaper? I'm leaning towards the FD Define R3 but I'm not familiar with them.

The R3 is a wonderful case! Another suggestion would be this Lian Li, it is very sleek and simplistic while being very functional(2x USB 3.0 ports on the front!). Lian-Li is known for their unbeatable quality and lightweight aluminum cases.

Yeah i was looking at some Lian Li cases but unfortunately they seem to cost 2x as much for the same benefits and looks.

Thank you for the suggestion though. If price wasn't an object I'd probably go with them or the Corsair.

I bet that thing gets great temps but the top is just a bit too open for me with my daughter and all.

From my understanding, it doesn't. It has 2 slots on the top for fans but you can block them off.
