Well the 600t apparently is just slightly wider and slightly shorter then the HAF X lol. It's bigger then I though I suppose. So you could go with that, but I'd still recommend the HAF X. Give it a look at, it's nice and has plenty of cooling and options, as well as filters too =) I'm off to sleepz now lol

the 600T (Now comes in white) is gr8 for an air cooled rig, however, you might find it a bit tight to put a water cooling kit in. I don't know how many rads will fit in the roof as it might foul the memory brackets.

Also figured people would like to know, Another reason why i really like the 600t is for this build from the corsair website, http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=93514

I really do love how he set that up, Looks really nice, I'm going to stick with the Heatsink that i currently have on the list and later on down the line upgrade to full on watercooling.

I hear you on that. I have my Stacker 832 set up in BTX as I mounted my 240 rad in the bottom and BTX is the only way it'd fit in.

As for the 600T, if the 800D and 700D's build quality are anything to go by, it's worth the premium over other Midtowers.

But if you don't want to change anything else that's fine, but at least think about changing the case.
Sorry to say this Rabbs but I own the Corsair 600T, and built a computer for my friend, and he had to have the NZXT Phantom. I built both PC's from the ground up with cable management, and I don't see how you say better airflow, cable management, or WAY more room inside. The NZXT is roughly 1.5" longer and is a little over 1" higher than the 600t. Unfortunately for wire management neither one of those helps because it makes it harder to get the wire where it needs and you may need wire extenders depending on the equipment you have. Also for water cooling it does put more strain on your pump because you will need that much more in tubing. But for cable management the width of both cases = NZXT 8.74, and the 600T 10.40, which is roughly 1.5" difference. So that you will be able to fit every thing you need inside the case. And those Nactua D14 is rather large.

As for the case cooling the model of the 600T is going to be better than the NZXT because it has a 200mm fan in the front, a 200mm fan at the top, a 120mm fan in the rear, and then 4 x 120mm fans on the side of the case to blow nice fresh air straight at the heat sink and video cards.

And as far as way more room inside. I don't see that either it may be longer and taller by a little of an in. both ways I like the width better for room, that way I can stack the stuff side by side and not on top of each other if needed. But an in. is not that much room.

So M3thodAngel the case your looking at I would give 5 stars, best case I have ever owned, and even though I didn't own the NZXT I would have to give it 4 stars because it is very restrictive of its air flow through the front and the little swing part of the case annoys me when I work on my friends comp.

I just want to add also that for the NZXT I don't know where they measure but some of it is cosmetic like the front of the case pertrudes about 1.5" and the top is about 1.5" taller, and with the 600T 100% is usable space, the front is fully vented so any bays not in use have mesh for moor air flow.
