Case battle Haf X vs 800D - Page 2

post #11 of 20
save the extra dough go for the HAFX. It is better in almost every catagory except for looks and space. It is better in airflow, can house XL-ATX MB's and has USB 3.0. though if you were going water right away and needed more than 2 hot swap bays the 800d is the way to go

800D has no style its just a rectangular box. a 3 years old can come up with the exterior of 800D.

How is a Haf X not future proof?

The Haf has more PCI spaces, more 5.25" drive bays, it can also have more HDD/SSD slots.

The 800D may be bigger. But the Haf has more space.

And I am not saying the 7/800D's are not good cases. They are, but the design of them makes them hard to compare as they are aimed at different parts of the market.

But it has to be said, the 800D is far too expensive. Haf X + c300 > 800D anyday.

Yep, if they were the same price then the selling point is: Sleek, or Beast?

As someone with a CM Haf X filled to the brim with quality components, I have the knowledge and experience to say a few things about the Haf X. I do not have a Corsair 800d, however.

1. A Haf X can fit a 360 rad without any internal or external modifications. Now, because of where the first 5.25 bay is located, you won't be able to fit a rad + push/pull fans, because the first 5.25 bay will block that corresponding third of the 360 rad. Most rads are too thick to have in a push/pull config, unless you get the GTS stealth or something (which is what I have, blergghh).

2. From cable management perspective, the Haf X is extremely good. The side panel that covers the cables is designed so that part of it juts outwardly, which allows for more cables to pass in the back. Also, there are plenty of cable management holes.

3. From an internal space perspective, the Haf X is huge. You will NOT be cramped for space, even if you get an E-ATX or XL-ATX mobo. The Haf X may not be as "spacious" as a 800d, but trust me, I gurantee you that you will not be fumbling around because of space issues. The Haf X is absolutely cavernous.

4. The Haf X natively supports two USB 3.0 front panel headers. The Corsair 800d does not, BUT from what I understand, you can buy a 800d USB 3.0 front panel header for $15 from Corsair.com

5. The Haf X has 9 expansion slots, whereas the 800d only has 7 + an 8th honeycomb ventilated slot (not removable). For most (95%+ of all) people, this will NOT be an issue. But, for the super hardcore enthusiasts (even more so than me) who want GTX 580's in Quad-SLI ... well, this simply won't be possible in an 800D. If you want Quad SLI or quad XFire, you'll need a case with at least 8 expansion slots. The Haf X has 9.

6. When talking about looks, this is where opinions will differ greatly. Personally, I prefer the sleek look of the Corsair 800D. It's minimalistic, which is a great thing for a case to have. Also, the plexiglass side window of the 800D reveals much more than the 3/4 side window of the Haf X (at the sacrifice of some air flow, of course). But, if you'd like your machine to look like a beastly tank, then the Haf X will better suit you. The Haf X looks very industrial.

Hope this helps!

Two opposite ends of the table huh? I say the haf x because, I own one lol, its cheaper and made of thicker metal, so it doesn't bow or bend. It comes with wheels. supports xl-atx and 4 graphics cards in case you want to upgrade later, plus amazing airflow.

Corsair has a relatively inexpensive USB 3.0 front panel upgrade. I installed mine last week. Wasn't too hard but was a little tough getting all the cords routed.
