Case questions

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I am following up on a previous post I made about a Case that will provide me better cooling for my SLI and PSU.

Just curious, is this case any good now that it is on sale?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811133188

I like how there is a huge fan that hits the vid cards, and a huge fan at the top for top exhaust. (cant use back cause of needing to pull cool air in over radiator) I also like how it has a 3.5 bay for my card reader. Although it is not mandatory, I would like to keep it as it comes in handy.

The only thing that worries me is the lack of room on the back panel to store PSU wires. Better solutions for a roomy cool case? (cool as in temp)

Haf x, or 600t.

Edit: Here are some more cases, HAF 932, NZXT Phantom, and AZZA Hurrican 2000.

thanks for the recommendations. After looking at the models, the 600t from corsair looks nice. Research is telling me that the White one has better fans that were added to help keep it cooler, as the 600t (black) runs a little hot due to the larger fan not having curved enough blades. Also, the mesh side would help to bring in cooler air on to the SLI set up to keep it cooler.

Given that, I know the HAF-x would definitely cool my SLI better, but has the 600t matured enough with the addition of the better fans and mesh side (given i put fans on it) enough to properly cool the case effectively? Also would it be best to keep the 200mm fan on the top for exhaust, or to replace it with two separate 120mm fans?

The fans on the 600T (white included) don't compare to the ones that come with the HAF X and 932. The 600T really shines for full water cooling loops. If you get the HAF X or 932 they both come with 3 big fans and a 140mm fan in the rear so it pretty much takes care of your cooling solutions.

I recommend the Silverstone Raven RV03.
