Ready to move on from Antec 300

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I'm ready to retire my 300 (someone is willing to buy it from me in other words). I'm looking for a monolithic style case with a large side window--room to upgrade graphics card. I have some ideas as to where to go from here but would love untainted advice. I do plan to OC down the road once my new system has a few hours from the factory. Positive pressure is where I'd like to go. Thanks in advance.

LED fans are meh, as are window panels with a place for fans or a weird design. Think conservative for the eyes. The LEDs will be on the inside, hence the window.

Corsair 500D? Any particular budget limit?

Nothing exceeding 800D tag, getting 80 U.S. for the 300 if that helps. I'm not seeing anything about a Corsair 500D case. Did you mean 650D? I felt the side window was too small. Love the specs on cable management. Heard too much negative for me to spend that much for a name brand. I would have went 800D for future water cooling capabilities.

Forgot to add, black interior is a huge plus.

Neither have the side window I'm thinking of unless they offer the 600T in black with the white's side window. All black is what I'm looking for.

I went from an Antec 300 to a HAF 932. V happy with it.

Love the cooling capabilities but not the side panel (looking for zero mesh on the side, full window). Thank you though.

Will do. Is this store bought or household? Limited tool-wise. Going to topic now. Thank you.
