im wanting to get a new case. need help

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
im out to get a new case to step away from the cheap but useful NZXT Apollo.
i need a case with good cable management, has a window(no fan slots on side, do want to deal with dust)
i have 3 cases pointed out
the white edition Corsair 600T ( i have always wanted this Aperature Science looking case ever since ive built computers)
the Corsair 650D
the Fractal Design R4( i like quiet but not sure how well this case performs.
the Max i would spend is $170 but anything around works i just need something with good airflow and enough space.
i know the Corsair 500R fits along the 600T but it has a gigantic side fan without a filter and i feel its counter productive to buy a case and then get a filter when it should have came with one to begin with

He said he didn't want fan mounts on the side panel, and the 600t and 650d are both great cases I don't know much about the r4 either. But I heard that NZXT has released a new case called the Phantom 530 with a big side panel window and they should be retailing for 119.99 usd

Always possible to do the fanless side window mod on it.

i could but thats just more money to spend, but i guess money saving on the case helps
i though it was the phantom 630? it looks really nice but i dont think i need a full size but that case is always a good option

and the 530 would actually be PERFECT. except its not out till september =/ so i might just get the 600t
can you guys tell i like Black/white =)
