But if you wanna go water cooling and want your PC to look good, go for the 800d. Did I mention it fits eATX mobos?
When you say water cooling do you mean full blown water cooling or something like the H50/70? I'm picking one of those up but I don't want to mess with a full blown water cooling setup because I'd likely screw something up.

it's so bad that corsair put a 200m intake on their new 650D after all the complaints they read lol

If you like the styling of the 800D you should check out the Silverstone FT02. The FT02 is arguably the best performing air cooling case.

Go for a HAF case, they have one of the best airflow, especially when equipped with extra fans. H50/70 is still classified as an air cooling solution (by some? Please don't judge me). And if ever you wanna go for a full-blown water-cooling the HAFs are still good for them.

You either love the HAF X's looks or you hate it. The FT02 looks closer to the 800D and has excellent airflow. The Corsair Obsidian Series 650D is expected to be available in April.
