Go for the Corsair 600T White! I like it more then the black one, but 650D just missing something. I like the elegant look, but after having reviewed the 600T White, not sure how the 650D will stack up!

Hard to consider the 600T especially when the 650D is cheaper. Thinking about ordering one of those up today.

I haven't bought one yet but am still leaning towards the CoolerMaster HAF-X for my next build - I just like it!

I just got a 650D and I must say it is a fantastic case. Has room for a 2x140mm radiator up top. And you could easily jury rig a 240mm where the drive bays are. You could even still mount 4 HDD's w/ a radiator at the bottom.

Well Bit-Tech has a nice chart about airflow in recent cases.

The FT02 and both Raven RV02 and RV03 are good cases for airflow. In their chart they don't include the RV02-E that comes with AIR PENETRATOR fans and the HDD swap case. Basically the FT02 and the RV02-E are the same except for the exterior look.

For any of you looking for good airflow cases and relatively silent you guys should get the RV02-E that you can PM for 161$ or the FT02 for 215$ at NCIX.

For watercooling it's really a no brainer to go with Corsair or a HAF-X. But I prefer the look of Corsair cases.

+1 just picked up a 650D for my new build and I'm very impressed. Quality is excellent and looks much better than the HAF imo. I'm a fan of clean looks.

I swapped out the top fans with Noctua's and have a high perf. Panaflo in the rear. No airflow or temp. issues to speak of, the built in fan controller is nice as well.

Only thing I would change is replacing the windowed side panel with a mesh one. This is currently in development by Corsair which will accommodate 4x 120mm fans and is expected to be available next month.
