New case suggestions?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey guys

I can't decide which case to get with my new build Originally I was going to go for the Phantom but I think it's a bit tooo flashy, I'm looking for something different now. I really like the look of the white 600T w/ side window but it's pretty pricey here, so what cases are there around that are similar aesthetically? I've had a look at the 690 II, 650D, 500R and some Fractal Design ones but nothing has really looked as good to me as the white 600T.

I won't be watercooling btw. I'd like front panel USB 3.0, a side window and to be okay with my parts:
i5 2500k (with a Cogage Arrow maybe?)
GTX 570 (maybe the EVGA DS version)
max of 3 HDDs
1 DVD

Space isn't an issue so either full or mid towers are fine.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

I love the 650D, just the stock fans are

the 600t is great too, but i like the exterior of the 650D better. I had to choose b/w both lol. and their fan controllers suck.

though the 690II is a solid case too.

well for me its either 600t with clear acrylic side panel or thermaltake chaser mk-1. I will be buying either one of those

Do they? I hadn't heard that before... What's wrong with them? Just bad quality?

How loud are the stock fans if you just plug them into the PSU?

Loud enough to hurt my ears lol. the stock fan controller should be ok with the stock fans, but that is it. Setting it to low will lower the noise a lot!

Okay I'll see how I go with the stock controller and when it dies I'll get a better one

Will also pick up a converter for the USB 3.0 mobo header I think.

Thanks for your help!
