need case help

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am looking to upgrade my case. I currently have the original HAF 932, which i like, but is just too much of a dust magnet, and im getting a little tired of the aesthetics, and want a bigger side window.

My budget is not really existent, if there is a $300 case that i really like i dont mind spending on it. I want the case to support decently sized radiators, like the h100i. I wont be doing any crazy watercooling at the moment, but one day i would like to. would like it to easily fit dual gpus. Would like a big side window. Easy cable management is a must. Dust filters are a must. I would prefer if the case had some sort of other way to take the panels off such as a latch on the 600T, but i can do with basic thumbscrews if needed

I am looking at:
Corsair 900D
Corsair 750D
Corsair 600T
Corsair 650D

NZXT Phantom 820
NZXT Phantom 630
NZXT Switch 810

I really like the look of the corsair cases, but i have heard not very good things about them. Alot of people on corsair forums are complaining that the 750D has poor airflow if you are using GPU's that exhaust into the case. I like the 900D alot, but is it really practical for what i have? its a massive case, for not really massive projects. Im not sure if i need support for 5-6 rads and 10 million fans. I had a look at the NZXT phantom at my local store, and it was nice, but it felt a little cheap (im not sure if this was the basic cheap phantom, or the high end one) the plastic doors and panels felt wobbly and cheap feeling, it just didn't really feel like it had the robustness of a metal corsair case. I like how the 750D and 900D have a nice big window (i like admiring my computer).

have you looked at the Corsair Vengeance C70 cases? they come in white, black, and military green, they are very large for a mid size case.
I bought mine about 7 months ago as my old case had poor air flow and my 2 GTX 580's made lots of heat, my temps went way down with
the C70, although a few months ago I bought a GTX 680 but kept 1 580 for PhysX and am still running cool.
the C70 has ugly fan mounts on it's window but I did my own window for 24 bucks, or there is a guy on the C70 owners club on here that makes and ships them. here are pics of my case inside and out to show my window mod. but if you don't like the C70 then I would go for the 750D, it's a nice case.
