I currently have 2 240 rads and an additional 120 rad that I would like to add. My hardware:

AMD 8350
Asus Crosshair V Formula
7850 (X-fire)
Samsung "wonder ram"
Corsair HX750

I do not think I will miss the optical bays, but having them would be nice.

What does everyone think? Will the 760T be "too much" case for my needs? Is there a Graphite case that would better suit my needs? Or should I go with either of the other two choices I had initially narrowed myself to? Thank in advance!

The 760 would handle that hardware and those rads really well! thumb.gif The 760 can support up to a 360 in the top as well as a 240 in the front. I think that would be a good looking system. What color 760 would you be doing?

If you are considering 2x 240 and a additional 120, you can potentially even consider the 600T. I'm not so sure about the modding capabilities of the 760T to support a 120+240 on the top, but I know the 600T can support that with a little modding.

However if you are considering to mount the additional 120 on the back, then both 600T and 760T will be more than capable.

The white looks very nice, but I'm not sure if it is $10 nicer, lol.

I had been considering the 600T for a little while, but I forgot what about it made me reconsider it.


Thanks, both of you!

Both colors would make the hardware really stand out. Personally, I am really excited about the 760T. The side window on it looks great! thumb.gif

Well, if you are planning on upgrading within the near future, I would go for a case other than the 760T because (unless I am mistaken) we don't really know when that will be available. However, if time isn't really important, I think the 760T is a great looking case. Only you can decide if it will be "too much case." Just keep in mind that the 760T is a full tower case and your other choices are mid tower, so it will definitely be the larger option. If everything you have adequately fits into your current case, then I would stick to a mid tower, but if you feel like you want some room to expand, the full tower might be a decent option. As for other Graphite cases, I know that the majority of us here have the 600T and many have modded in front 240mm support, but if you aren't comfortable with modding, the 600T isn't really for you. As for the 230T, that is more of a budget offering and based on what you listed as potential cases, it doesn't seem to fit the bill. At this point you have to decide how important the optical bays are. You seem a little uncertain on whether or not you would miss them, so I would really think about what you would need to put in there. If it is just your blu ray drive, then there are ways to make that an external drive, such as enclosures. If you think you are able to go without, I would look at the H440, I really liked it when it was first announced and it would definitely provide you with some room to upgrade your cooling loop in the future if you so choose. However, if you decide that you want an optical bay, then go with the Arc Midi R2. I personally don't know what the watercooling capacity is on that, so I would try and look into some of that before committing to it, but I have heard many people that love that case.

Sorry for rambling I'm a bit sick, but there's my 2cents.gif

EDIT: Just looked for the 760T on newegg, apparently it will be available in about a month

It's always good to have more than less, if your budget allows it then why not buy the best? Especially the case. You're gonna look at it everyday. I can't really say much though as I haven't got the 760t. So if you like the look of it, go for it. smile.gif Also, with any case it's possible to do anything if you have the time.

Yeah, I read that the 760T will not be available until mid-March (Chinese New Year caused some delay). I am not in a serious rush, but one of the rads in my case is leaning a little (I modded a Lancool case to fit a 240 rad in the front, and while I do like it, it has been making me nervous as of late). I debated getting an Arc Midi late last year when it was around $65 and now I feel dumb for not having pulled the trigger. Bah...

Thanks, I had not thought about getting an external enclosure for my Blu-Ray drive. I will keep that in mind. smile.gif

For me, if I buy a case that is "too big," I will look inside and say to myself, "Hey, I think I need something else in there." I am looking for something that will fit everything that I have but at the same time, help limit me in spending more money for upgrading. The H440 and Arc MIdi, as has been mentioned, are smaller and I believe both will suit my needs. However, having a full panel window that made my jaw drop when I saw the pics from CES is also something that I would love to have.

In terms of looks, I love the H440 and 760T. In terms of functionality, I feel the Arc Midi will be enough.


I think this conversation is helping me narrow it down between the H440 and the 760T, so thank you all! biggrin.gif

the side and top panel of the 760T sure looks sleek though.. Better than the mesh top panel of the 600T.. biggrin.gif
