case selection
 
which case do you think it is better to buy corsair 600T or obsidian 650D

Whatever looks better to you, I prefer the 600T myself.

There is also Carbide 500R :)

I know a freind that owns both, and he had a heck of a time setting up the 600T to get the airflow properly balanced, course his system is well beyond what I could afford :P

I have a Silverstone Raven 3, beyond the time it takes to wire, and the care one has to take to make sure Sata cables are long enough and such, it really is an awesome case, air is very well directed without much effort, and the cooling is top notch, especially with a couple of decent 120mm fans to add to the side panel and front panel. I have also heard very good things about all of the HAF series of cases, the 932 and HAFX stand out.

600t ftw
of course its personal preference really. your already headed in the right direction buying corsair. cant really go wrong there. they think of everything.

If you like clean corners and aesthetics then go for the 650D, if you want better cooling the 600T is the better choice.

600T and 650D are identical (from what I recall on the inside) its just the outer part that is different.

That said.. I like the 650D over the 600T

Never had the 650D, but the 600T I had had horrible airflow.

Temperatures were AT LEAST 10C higher than my HAF922's temperatures at ALL times with EVERY SINGLE part.

If you're not crazy about temperatures, the 600T is pretty nicely designed. But temperatures is the first thing I look at when I get a new case.

fans in that case aren't that great and if i recall there is only 2

So, there's no top fans?! Well, that would do it!

o_o

enaberif December 30, 2011 06:38 PM

there is 3 from the pictures but 2 are like 200mm fans which i don't like for good airflow
