Lian Li PC-9F or Corsair 650D! Which one should I buy! Side widow?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm having trouble deciding between the two!

Lian Li-PC9F:


Corsair 650D:


I'm tired of plastic cases or thin feeling steel and that's what provoked me to look at the Lian Li.

I also wanted a very minimilistic design, though, I'm still considering whether I should get a side-window or not?

Obviously 650D is solid, made of steel, but has the front aluminum panel. The cable management is better for sure.

But the Lian Li is all aluminum and has no side window.

What do you guys think? I'm also considering the Fractal r4 define:

as someone with a 9f, i'd pony up the extra and get a 650d, if i were in the market for another case

Thanks for responding.

I can agree, I'm not going for the Lian Li anymore. The aluminum build looks great, but I found way too many cons looking at the reviews.

At this point, I am comparing the Fractal Define r4 or Fractal Arc midi r2 vs. the Corsair 650D

if i were in the market for another case it'd be the arc midi r2 or the corsair 650d

that is if i weren't going to build a case or get something that's complete overkill like an st10-x
