My vote goes for the HAF and don't worry about the paint, pretty durable.

If you like the look of the 600T get that, I've heard nothing but good things and its got nice cable management

The front being plastic doesn't really scratch but the rest is the same as any case if not better. It feels like a rugged case.

Cable management is fine i have no problem, unlike some cases i didn't need an 8 pin cpu power extender which is nice.

When i had a GTX280 under load it would hit 80c, when my friend had the same card in his TJ-07 it was over 100c....about 109c i think. Thats shows you the air cooling power it has.

I have mixed feelings about the 600T, yes it has great cable management, fan controler etc, but for the same style of case i think the coolermaster storm sniper looks better, bit smaller but i also have worries about the coolermaster sniper; cables! the MB tray dosent cover the whole back of the case and i am worried about mess. :-| very confused

How tall is the case? i have the figures but when i compare it alongside the Coolermaster storm Sniper, internal photos there looks to be so much more things in the HAF compared to the sniper, in the same space and they are the same hight; apparently???

I've never seen a Storm Sniper but looking at pictures i'd say it was ALOT bigger, think Antec 1200. It's roughly that size.

This was with SLI 280's and a ASUS Xonar.

My only concern with the HAF-X and Sniperis that they have fans on the side panel. yes its great for cooling but if your like me i take my side panel off quite a lot and i dont knowif i can be doing with the faf of having to fiddle the fan header to put it back on the motherboard or having the mess of a molex sitting on the bottom of the case. lol
