800D or Haf X

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
Getting ready to pull the trigger on the new case and can't decide which one to get...

Here is what I'm seeking

1. As little dust inside the case as possible. My house is very big on this.. I like the 800D a little better for this since it DOES have less air flow and air intake is from the bottom -- just clean one filter and wala

2. Cable management -- Wanting a very very professional look with the wire management here. I've heard both are better than one another with this. Please elaborate and provide pictures if you can please

3. I'll be water cooling my CPU only for now. I have the XSPC Rasa RS360 kit


4. Or skip the case -- Get the logitech Z5500's for $235 since it's an instant improvement. The case just sits on the floor. Sound is a big component

800D. The HAF X is hideous.

800D has easier cable management but you will have to work harder to get airflow through it. Professional look the 800D takes that any day over the HAF X.

You said "water" so go 800D. 800D is way more pleasing to the eye.

I have the 932, and I love it. But the design of the HAFX is very unappealing to me. For the price point hes looking at I would say 800d.

What if it's a little bit of a hybrid. GPU is not water cooled, just the CPU is
