Anything that looks a little less "gamer" - I like how the 650d looks but I don't think it really is that much smaller than my 800
post #14 of 62
Less gamer...good sir look into Fractal Design Cases...may I suggest Define R3...beautiful case with awesome cable management...also the air flow is not bad and is improved over the first version And they are not expensive Additionally, there's a sound dampening material...it's always a +

Yeah in that case (pun?) go for the black box style. There's a lot of expensive black boxes out there like the fractal pictured above, or the corsair 650 previously mentioned.

It's just all about finding the black box that fits your personality. Are you a black box with slightly rounded corners? Are you a black box with some mesh on the front? Are you a black box stuffed with foam padding, shoved under a desk so you forget it's there?

All of these are profoundly deep existential questions that will alter the course of your life. One day you may reach for your power switch, and due to it's awkward location fall over and break your neck. Then you'll wish you had chosen a more appropriately configured black box.

Really what it comes down to is;

Too bleak, or not too bleak? that is the question.

I just went from an Antec 900 (one of the originals) to a 650D and my temps are about the same; no noticeable difference at all. I plan on changing out the stock 200m FRONT fan, along with adding 2 x 140mm on top, then I am going to add a Mountain Mod 3 x 5.25" Bay 120mm Fan Mount & custom fan grill to get even more airflow from the front. As you can see the 650D has so many options that airflow is really no concern.

And size wise, yeah it is a pretty big case... not nearly as huge as the 800d. It fits all my components with room to spare; which is what I like

I agree... I absolutely love the cable management in the 650d, what a world of difference, lol.... now I just need to do some cable sleeving to make it all look pro

Thanks I'll look into these. Now all I have to do is find out how to sell (and ship) my 800.
