Current Inverted Case Selections

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I searched on overclock.net and I didn't find any more current threads on inverted cases. I have been looking for an inverted case with a side window so I can keep my rig on my left with the window facing me. The only options I have found are Corsair 600C and Be Quiet! Dark Base Pro 900. The Corsair 600C looks and feels a little cheap. The Dark Base Pro 900 looks to be the one to get, but no one carries it in the US. Another possible option is Thermaltake Core X5. The mobo lays flat in the X5 and the clear window pane can be on the right side of the case, but cable management seems to be an issue with its layout.

Are there other options out there that could fit my needs?

Nope. Dark base 900 will be in the US soon.

Have you actually gone to a store and touched and felt a 600C? No it isn't 1/4" aluminum that can survive a fall from a building but I doubt you will be doing that, and imo it is as good as quality as any other steel case out there. It is in my top 5 of cases to build in right now.

Vf2ss, thanks for the link. This one is worth looking into. Those 5.25" drive bays though...

Yes, I have checked it out in person at Fry's and a local shop. It isn't my cup of tea. My current case is a Corsair 750D. The 600C seems to be flimsier than the 750D. I think it is the wobbly acrylic screen door that gave me that impression.

I realize everyone has a budget for whatever they are buying, myself included.

But the old saying:
"You get what you pay for", remains true here.

True that. 600C is a good option.
