What case to get?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
i really like the Corsair 600T, but the single usb 3 and it being a pass though turns me off. I am thinking of getting a white 500r now, but the side panels aren't like the 600T...maybe the 650D would be better, but does it have a usb3 mobo header? What would you guys recommend? I only need 3 hard drive bays, and one DVD Drive slot, so I think I can do a small mid tower too.

I would like something that is easy to route cables in, painted black on the inside, can fit a D-14 or SA, high quality. Not lan-li...I don't get why people like those cases...

Is there going to be a revised 600T? lol.

BTW, suggest me to mod my HAF or ask why I don't keep it will = no rep 4 u! lol I hate my HAF...

The Arc Midi too plain for you? The newest ones have usb 3.0 headers. The 650D should have the same USB setup as the 600T as they're essentially the same case with different outsides.

You could also always get the 600T and add a front panel for USB 3.0 as well. 600T is an amazing case.

I would highly suggest the 650D. I would have gotten that instead of my 800D with all my research. I believe the 650D does have one USB 3.0 and it will fit everything else you have.

Well, I think the NZXT m59 would work for you. Good little case. No usb3 though. NZXT customer service is excellent as well.

That is a very nice case, i'm now considering it.

I know! I really like the plain look and easy to remove panels so much.

Thanks for the suggestion, I'll look into it now. wink.gif



Any one else want to toss in some suggestion? smile.gif

For 650d, I don't think you'll have issue with gpu cooling as you have a twin frozr II card. You might as well upgrade your Hyper 212+ just in case you want better cpu temps. I think you dig simple looking cases.

Note that 650d also has aluminum front panel like those of Lian-Li cases.

Just to throw an idea out there, you could try looking at the Fractal R3.
Nice case that will fit everything with good air circulation and allows for additional fans. Supports USB 3.0, the sound proofing is a nice little bonus.

That looks to be the perfect case for my server! Thanks for the suggestion.

Newegg has the NZXT Phantom for $106.24 using promo code NZXTOCT1.

The black version too.

Edit: Maybe it isn't really what you're looking for...
