Also, "too gamer"...what the hell? Are you a closet gamer or something? Do you not want your friends to think you dont play videosgames? Probably the dumbest thing ive ever read on this site.

take it somone invest heavily into the crazy looking cases that look like they were made by HASBRO. Quite a drawn out response if not.


the 690 was among the king of simple but functional cases. for YEars. but like all things its usefulness died out. Though I hate corsair with an absolute passion, That 600T is beau-Tee-full though It would need a 200mm sidefan to seal the deal with me.


And then there's corsair's awesome m60 mouse.....damn them, damn them I say....

i agree with this. im one of you that wants a case looks pro and simple. and does not look like a toy or a robot or something. but of course it all depends on our preferences. for me this is the best looking case ive seen so far

You're looking at standard 'gamer' cases for losers. Look at professional/workstation/server cases. http://www.chenbro.com/

I really don't like buying cases. the last time I bought one was roughly 5 years ago. if you don't want how the new cases look then just mod your own. that's whay I've been doing this past several years

stock gigabyte 3d aurora 570:
390
300
my 3d aurora
475
476

I've done pretty much anything I can think off. change the feets with stainless one's, repainted both the internal and externals, made custom swtiches for the LED's. made holes for cable management, made custom HDD mounts, a fan sorta mount made with old pvc pipes etc. I've grown so attached with this case even with new cases that have much better features, better cable management and airflow I'm never gonna replace my case biggrin.gif
