Default High Performance Mid tower Case out there HELP!! URGENT

Hi the case i have now is a haf 922 red and i really dislike almost all the things

The side panels are hard to slide off and uses thumb screws

The air vent holes do not have dust filters at all

No USB 3.0 on front as well

is corsair 600T or 650D any good ?

Or there are better ones out there

I just got a Corsair 600T and I love it. Good mounting and quality parts, it looks nice, has a good cutout for CPU heatsink access and has the best cable management I've ever run across.

I have a Corsair 500R and love it as well. If you're looking to spend less then this case and its younger brother the 400R are very great choices.

Well I personally love my Fractal Design Define R3, but what most reviews don't mention is the bloody right side panel. You have to do cable management that would make Zeus himself cry to be able to close it, and even then you'll have to lie it down and use your feet AND hands to get it on. The main side panel goes on and off beautifully though.

I can tell you I love my Define R3 and Define XL so many mounting options for HDD. Also the slide panel easily opens up. But the problem you will face will be the case is strictly for air cooling only. There are no mounting options for watercooling and you have to be creative if you want to do so.

The 600T and 650D are basically the same frame inside, it is the outside and the "goodies" that are different.

I went with the 650D as I liked the simple lines over the curves and such of the 600T. Either way it is so easy to work in a monkey could cable manage it easily.

650D gets my vote, Ive had both the 600T and the 650D, and the 800D. 650D all teh way. Looks great and functions great
