Help needed for a $2000 Gaming PC Build! - Page 6  

post #51 of 134

Guys need some help in deciding the Case.. I am torn apart between the choices available . It's getting overwhelming for me tongue.gif . Requirement for my case are :
- should be full tower
- I will not do any water cooling(maybe next year)
- I will learn cable management using this case as I haven't done before
- good air cooling

Currently my choices are (in no particular order) :
- NZXT Phantom white
- NZXT Switch 810 white
- HAF 932 Advanced
- Thor V2 white edition

My question is which one will you choose if you had the same requirement .. I know it's a matter of personal taste but still a little opinion help will not hurt smile.gif thanks!

The cases you posted are great cases. But if you change your mind and want a large mid tower, you should look at the 500R and 600T. Those cases are GREAT for air cooling.

Honestly speaking I still need to check Corsair cases. When I started , I was sure as ancient aliens that I will take a black case and it will be HAF 932 advanced .. But when I went ahead for my intellectual conquest for cases above cases blew me away .. So I am getting more confused day be day tongue.gif

But making things worse is - i have never seen any of the computer cases except CM 690 || advanced which I owned (pun ? or it owned me ? tongue.gif) .. .. I guess I need to make a trip of micro center to get myself acquainted with cases:)

Any suggestion is appreciated ..to overcome this conflict of demonic proportions ..

I have the Corsair 800D and I have to admit, it's f'n amazing. I had a ThermalTake V9 Black Edition before this and there is no comparison in fit&finish between the two. (Yes the 800D is twice as expensive.) If this case is any indication of the type of quality to expect from all Corsair cases, I definitely recommend the 650D, 600T, or 500R.

The NZXT cases are definitely nice looking on the inside, but that high gloss black plastic turned me off. I actually ordered a Black 810 and canceled the order hours later.

My roommate has a HAF932, and he's never had any problems with it. It's not as classy looking as the Corsair cases, but it is functionally unmatched for air cooling.

No experience with the Thor case.

IMO for your first build. Go with a closed loop cooler. Like the corsair H80. You will get great temps, and you dont have to worry about leaks because of Corsair's warranty.

Yeah! Thanks for suggestion. I opened one more thread for deciding on cooler actually :

http://www.overclock.net/t/1255811/cpu-cooler-for-asus-sabertooth-z77-board-dimension-considerations

So I have decided to go with H100. Now, only thing left to pick is the Case which will fit Sabertooth + H100. I know almost all will fit. But if its full tower with easy installation for H100 it would be great!
