Default Trying to decide between 2 Cases ?

Which case would you suggest between the CoolerMaster HAF-X and Corsair 650D ?

650D

The Haf-X is just too big.

I think the HAF is ugly as sin and the 650D looks great. So......

+1 but why not go with a real man's case like the FT02/RV02 unless you're water cooling then go Corsair...

How about the Fractal Design Arc? or Core 3000?

Unless your planning on getting one of those huge XL-ATX boards, I'd just go with the 650D.

The esthetics of the HAF-X are subjective...TBH, I used to think it was ugly as sin. It looks much better in person, IMO.

If you got the room for it, the HAF-X is a pretty solid case. It's well built, good cable management and keeps things cool with the stock fans. Just make sure you have a strong back...it's quite heavy.

Does anyone know if the aircooling on the 650D is like the 800D? I remember many complaints about the 800D having sub-par air cooling.

its not as bad as the 700/800D actually even a little better than the 600T but still quite sub par to any case of that price range...even 50$ cases nowadays do better tbh!
