Thanks momonz, now I am just waiting for MC to get them in stock and if I want the H510 or the H510i.. Don't know if I care about the lights as the side of the case won't really be viewable so maybe I save the extra $40~

H510 Elite (the glass version) at 1500RPM fan speed is worse for CPU temp than Meshify S2 / Phanteks P600S at 1000RPM fan speed. It's only vented on one of the sides for the front panel.

Can't go wrong with the Meshify, IMO. Best case I've ever bought.

Main downside is that you can't really mount standard 3.5 drives if you have a big ol PSU.

Another vote for the meshify C. It's pretty darn good.

What about the standard H510 that doesnt have the glass in the front. The previous version H500 wasn't completely horrible at air flow.

I was get the Meshify C but it won't fit my GPU. and I was looking to stay away from the S2 as it was just overall bigger and I was trying to go for compact.

Site says 286.5

I would like to put my Corsair H115 Pro in the front which is 29

Case specs says max is 315, minus the 29 leaving me with 286..
It MAY fit, but it will be extremely tight..

If I got with the S2, I guess I could do push/pull (I have the fans)

In this review the guy even says the C is too cramped for most people and the S2 left too much room and then he said that NZXT H500 did a good job at providing the middle ground.

Phanteks P400A was just released. It's slightly smaller than the S2.

That isn't a bad option. Just looking at the P400 original as I believe the A is just a refresh with RGB, GPU vertical mount and some other newer features. At a $90 price point for RGB and a fill front mesh - looks like a great option.

Now to wait a few weeks until its available for purchase and review on the A version pop up.
