It appears to me there is a place to route a cable up to the motherboard 4 pin. If you fast forward to 6:57 you can see it. Their cases offer great cable management. I highly doubt they would overlook the motherboard 4 pin connector. The video is playing tricks on your eyes!

Maybe he drilled a hole there before the video...

Check the Corsair page or google the case in Google Images... there's no hole at the top, man... only on the right side...

Edit: good picture of it:

Watched the video.... see what you mean now!

If I am getting a new case, I've limited my contenders to these:

Corsair Carbide 500R
600T
650D (although more expensive of the two)

Which one should I get?

I want to use either the H80 or H100 liquid cooling setup. I am not sure how much overclocking can be done with these but this is not the priority.

If I can get by on a slight overclock, that's sufficient. Or I may just get a non-K cpu and use virtualization. I'm not sure yet but the liquid cooling looks intriguing to me.

Which case is best for that?

i'm sure you can get a good overclock out of the H100. My H60 keeps my cpu at 70c max with prime 95 running for hours at 4.7 ghz.

As for which 3. I'm sure they all offer similar features. It's up to you and how much you have to spend and which one you like best :P. I like the 500r for ease of mountin the h100.

Today, it looks like the cheapest one can get the 500R for is $130? 'Wish it would get a bit cheaper. :) I even looked at the CM 690 II Advanced since it's around $80-ish but a much older case, right? It also looks a lot cheaper made? Also, a lot of fans so it probably gets loud and I like that the 500r uses the grommets.
