Hi everyone, I'm looking for a new case and have been intrigued by both the 600T and the C70. In your opinion (disregarding price), which do you like better and why?

If I get the 600T I will also get a custom acrylic side panel. And if I go for the C70 I will be getting it in black.

Thanks!

I think the 600t looks better and from what I saw (don't quote me on that) the community for it seems to be bigger. I don't know what's up with the C70, the red button does appeal to me, but not the rest of it.... Just my opinion. rolleyes.gif

Thank you, opinions are just what I'm looking for! I actually dropped by Fry's earlier to take a look at both of them. I have to say that I also find the 600T more attractive, it's pretty massive compared to the C70 as well. I do have to say that the build quality of the C70 is better, and I can see the niche for it. I'm starting to lean toward the 600T but I'm still undecided tongue.gif

The C70 is a great case in terms of functionality and airflow. I got mine to replace my my old CM Scout, cause the Scout II is ug-lee redface.gif and I wanted to keep similar carry handles.

Do you think it would be big enough to comfortably fit dual 660Tis (They have the MSI TwinFrozr cooling)? Also do you have any problems with the side window? When I stopped by to check it out the side window was scratched up pretty bad and felt a little cheap.

I ordered a C70. I should have it on Saturday. I'll let you know what I think. I pretty much spent a month deciding on a case.

The 600T, I would say is the technically better case, but if you don't like the look, the C70 should do great.

Thanks for the reply. I think I'm leaning toward the 600T more in looks as well as functionality. I saw someone who managed to pull off push-pull on his H100 in a 600T, so I might be tempted to do that. Also, I think with the custom acrylic panel the 600T just looks downright sexy biggrin.gif

The 600t is the best case I have owned so far. Build quality is great and it has tons of room to work with. Plus I got it on sale thumb.gif

I actually own the C70, and it could definitely hold a couple 660 Ti's.
As for the window, it is pretty nice. It is tinted slightly, but you can still see the components inside. Some teenagers probably scratched up the window, you can't really scratch it unless you used a knife or the edge of a coin.
Both cases are high quality, but I would have to recommend the C70.
