I thought the second round of shots was even better, the evening sun really adds to the effect.
Tough decision on the case for the next build. If you have narrowed it down to those two cases, it helps, but both have their pros and cons.
Personally I think the 600T is the "looker", but the HAF X would be the "performer". But having done a 932, maybe you do want something different, a HAF X is quite similar, the Corsair is quite different.
I agree with you. I think You hit it right. IMHO the HAF series can really push the cooling envelope due to perforated design when one chooses to air cool. Though not bad with the space inside when crossing over to LC either. If I did I would be choosing the 600T to get the full acrylic window. It's just so sexy. If I do choose to go 600T I have decided it will be a deeper investment since I will end up LC'ing that one if so. On the other hand
I do like the idea of having twin HAF series cases next to eachtoher. Like two freight trains ready to go.
I want to run pure white lighting this time; almost that Xenon HID look. I game with rather large headphones (Corsair HS1A's) on so loudness from fans doesn't bother me and I really like aircooling now days. The more I weigh the pros I lean towards HAF-X vs. a pure aesthetic allure of the 600T with the MNTPC window. I really want to leave the complete window alone but I really benefit from having the wall of fans on the HAF evacuating the heat bloom on my MSI TWIN FROZR's.
I have read some threads with heat comparisons when people transfer the internals over to their new 600T reporting considerably higher temps than in their old case. An Antec 900 example comes to mind. So many conditions/parameters running through my head. If I find a solution that is cost effective that yields the aesthetics of the windowed 600T it's still in the running as I am def not feeling the new 500R/400R they just released.
If there were a brushed aluminum (800D'esque/Lian Li'esque) version with T6061 Aluminum Billet front panel of the HAF available it would def be a no brainer....Well for my taste anyways.
