Both cases are great. I do feel, however, that the 800D is slightly overrated. I don't mean to say that it's not a great case, because it truly is, I just feel that (after working with both the 800D and the HAF X extensively) the HAF X is the better buy.

The aesthetics are a very subjective criteria. Don't listen to anyone tell you to go one way or the other based purely on looks-- that part is up to you. My personal opinion is that I absolutely love the rugged and powerful look of the HAF X. It's a monster and it's something that I get praise and comments on all the time. On the other hand, I do also appreciate the... elegant and clean look of the 800D. I just got bored with it after a couple of weeks.

Have yet to get bored with the HAF X, though.

Yes, i agree with Plex...

Also HAF X looks much better than Photos in real life.. It's really good strong quality TANK there.

Lol.

Possible? Yes.

Ridiculous? Yes.

Worth it? Not in the eyes of common sense.

I know you're just trying to choose the best contender before spending your money, but I think you should just make your decision already based off the facts:

HAF X is superior for air cooling, especially if you want good cooling for your GPU(s). So, if you don't plan on spending a few hundred dollars on water cooling your GPUs in the future, just get the HAF. If you're unsure, and may some day want to go with water cooling, get the 800D. If you like the 800D's appearance that much over the HAF X, get the 800D.

One more thing 9 PCI slots will come very handy in HAF X when you don't sandwich your cards....

Had a thread like this about a month ago. Went with the Corsair 800D, performance, looks and features were better than the Haf-X in my opinion. Haven't had a chance to get my rig up as there was a problem with the motherboard but will soon. love my 800D.

You're not doing anything except circulating hot air in the case. As the others have stated 800D just doesn't have enough cold air intake to cool GPU's like the HAF-X does. I know you're trying to find a way into justifying the 800D but it's just not going to work as well in an 800D as it will in the HAF-X. At this point you're only thinking about looks rather than function.

If you were watercooling everything I'd say go with what you want then, but with your current configuration there's really no argument in favor of the 800D.

ok I also looked at the case I dont think its possible and even so it woudnt perform as good as a HAF X :\\


if I go with water cooling for both my GPU's and get a 800D instead of HAF-X it will take my rig cost around 400$ higher :\\

and that with only 1 triple rad at the top (360GTX)... will it even be able to hundle all the hit ? and I am planing to OC my CPU quit allot planing on at list 4.8 24\\7
and if I get water cooling for my GPUs I will want to OC them with voltages so more hit for the 360GTX :\\

I guess that if I get them I will need to get a 120 or 140 rad at the back of the case it will come after the CPU to cool down the water a bit and then send it to the GPUs... (so a GTX120 at the back anther 50$ a total of 460$ extra money for the rig :\\ but my rig will platform much better )
what do you think ? (that double the cost of my water cooling :\\)

edit:
without the extra cost of the 800D its around a 290$ add to my rig...

what if I get a 800D now and get water cooling for the GPUs later ???

Also just another thought buy have you already bought your PSU? 1200W is over and beyond overkill for your setup. You could easily get away with less. 950w would give you plenty of overhead for future upgrades.

If you like the 800D looks go with it and with a little creativity you can make it work. It's all about balancing the looks vs performance. If you're willing to sacrifice a bit on temps to get the look then go for it. Personally I think the look is more important, assuming you can keep the temps reasonable, since both cases are enormous and you'll be seeing them alot. You'll be able to make any case peform well with some thought and effort, but if you start with a look you're not crazy about it's harder to fix that imho. It's really a subjective decision, so all of us will keep throwing opinions and then it's up to you
