Antec has really let me down recently, nothing they make remotely interests me, they are all ugly or non functional as sin IMO.

Other case makers arn't much better either. There's nothing original anymore. I missed the days when you had to fire up a dremel and actually hack and mod your case to make it special. The cookie cutter wanna be ultimate cooling/gamer cases look like utter shiat from most makers

I've added a fan to my 5.25 drive bays, switched over to the H100 CPU cooler (from a Megahalems w/ AP-15 P/P,) using AP-15s as exhaust fans. My cooling needs aren't that extreme though. With this config, I idle at 29-30C with a 25C ambient. If I am going for a high OC, I'll pull the side panel off and either run fans on the mesh or just keep it off depending...

Didn't have a problem with any of the other nitpicks...fan controller is fine for my needs, paint is perfect, fans have been swapped out w/ Xiggy blue LEDs (same fan as old stock in blue.)

Is it the highest airflow or coolest temp case out there? Absolutely not, but it will perform well enough to meet the needs of 99% of users out there and it is by far one of the best looking and easiest cases to build in.

Mine just came in today! Now I just have to wait for the fans and the motherboard and it's time for another rebuild this weekend.

What are you looking for in a case? Only cooling performance? Then get a different case. This is not a top end cooling case (without mods). What else is there? I have the side window, never had an issue with it. The fan controller sucks, but I've never seen a stock case fan controller I like.

Sure, the case does creak a bit when I torture the crap out of it for temp comparisons, but not under normal usage. (I've had lots of other cases that do the same thing).

This is a big mid-tower. It does things and fits things that no other mid tower can pull off. It has awesome cable management (so good other companies have copied it). It has removable and repositionable drive bays (a BIG plus in my book), easy to clean air filters (some people who's sole concern is cooling remove them).

Every case has its compromise. I bought this particular case because I fell in love with the interior. After seeing inside it Corsair could have made it look like a peanut and I still would have bought it.

Really, for me now the most important things are cable management, painted interior, enough drive bays for my purposes (optical and hard drive), bottom power supply mount, room for at least one rad (multiple rads in this case, go back a few pages and check out CesarNYC's build to see just how much can be stuffed in this case).

It seems to me you are enamored with the white version. That's great, but hardly a reason to purchase a case.

If I was going to purchase a new case now, I think I might pick up the Corsair 650D. I really like the looks of that case, and it had almost an identical interior. Same size.

In any case, I doubt the best way to go about things is to go into an enthusiast club for a product and list your complaints about it.

If you want to see pure awesomeness, go back to the beginning of this thread and LOOK AT THE BUILDS!

IMHO, they speak for themselves.

Your last comments just kill me. Obviously you have not read much of this thread.

At least look at this page:

http://www.overclock.net/computer-cases/831636-official-corsair-graphite-club-264.html

It shows two of the four rads Cesar has in his rig (FOUR RADS!!!!!), and it shows my case with a modded top and bottom. This case is a modder's dream. You wanna dremel things? Man, I can't think of many cases that are more suited to being modded. Those other expensive cases, I look at them as the Porsches and Lamborghinis of computer cases. I look at the Corsair cases as the muscle cars of computer cases. They're great when you purchase them, but if you modify them they get even better. Lots of owners do exactly that, as seen in all the builds in this thread.

That's exactly why I was using my H70 as exhaust. I did the same test and got pretty much the same results. I decided I could put up with a couple more degrees on the CPU to not only keep more dust out of my case and rad, but keep my chipset and video cards a little cooler. I now have my H100 as push/pull exhaust for the same reason.

However, I'l looking for a little screening I can use as a dust filter because I would like to try intake at least once with the H100 before I make a permanent decision.

The 600T is has the identical layout as one of the Cooler Master cases. It's a clone... Might just be missing the bottom fan cut out on the 600T. I'm not saying who copied who. I'm just saying it's out there.

It's not the Storm Scout. I just have to find it.

I'd really like to know this, since we designed and tooled the case from scratch and it's just about the only case with its dimensions I've seen.

There are a lot of cases with similar layouts, but they all have a few flaws that we didn't like - so we corrected them. No cable routing? Fixed. Not enough room for long GPUs? Fixed. Hard drive trays in the way of airflow from front fan? Fixed. SSDs can't be mounted in existing trays? Fixed. Can't fit internal watercooling? Fixed. Only 7 PCI slots? Fixed.

There are a lot of cases that look very similar to each other - even Rosewill has cases with similar layouts - it's a very common layout for a very good reason - it works well. But there are nitpicky annoying things on most of them, so we tried to fix them.

I have yet to see any case in the mid tower category that even comes close to being as good as the 600T. It's the best case I have ever owned.

It is for me, but dont' get so butthurt about a little critisism on your beloved case that came from one website and one not entirely well informed possible purchaser. Take a prozac and chill. And I never said I needed maximum air cooling performance, stop putting words in my mouth. I was simply asking if there was any truth to the gripes that overclockers review had on the case but it seems like someone got a little anal on the defense. Perhaps call a Mod if you feel like your very existence is being threatned cause someone doesn't agree with your viewpoint on a computer case?

I"ll wait and see if a sale happens for the 600T before jumping my beloved Antec ship after all these years, Corsair has me intriqued at this point, nothing more....
