I currently have a Lian Li PC-8FIB and its starting to wear thin on me as it tinny and noisy as hell. Especially ever since I switched from my DH-14 to a H80i.
All in all I gotta figure something out for a case, the 900D is a little ridiculous in terms of overall size but hell... you cant even find them. I wish Corsair would release and update to the 550D and the 650D but who knows when that will come. The only thing preventing me from going Caselabs is that I can't have a clean bluray/dvd drive installed without it looking like ass. What to do... what to do...
Well, I kind of jumped the gun and couldn't resist and purchased the NZXT Switch 810.
I also purchased a Corsair H80i because the Noctua NH-D14 is rather ugly and the H80i can compete it terms of performance and wins aethestically IMO.
I read a lot of reviews of people owning the Corsair 650D AND Switch 810 and they said it was simliar build quality.
I'm hoping this is true because I DID own the 650D Corsair case and it was really a GOOD Case, solid, clean, sleek sexy, GREAT build quality. I ended up selling it because I wanted a full-tower and it was a bit boring (black, square).
That's why I found this Switch 810 very appealing in White because it really reminds me of the Obsidian cases but with a bit of "style".
I'm just hoping the build quality is there because I ordered a NZXT case before (the Tempest EVO) and it felt really cheap and I remember parts breaking on me.
If all else fails, I keep the packaging in really good condition and sell it for a Corsair 650D on ebay or something.
Thanks for the responses guys.
