So from what I'm reading, the Corsair is the best case for cable management. So next question being which case is the best for the money? Because on Newegg, the Antec is $100 less...

For the money, check out the Coolermaster Haf 912.

So nobody has anything to say about the Antec? Was kinda hoping it was decent even if it was cheap... So in the case of the Corsair, is the SE worth the extra money just for a window? Also does the white finish pick up dust and schmutz? Also, between the HAF 912 and the Corsair, other than the grommets, pricing, and the overall design, are there any real big differences, because if there are, I can't tell... Also sorry if I'm being annoying or what not from asking all of these questions...

I would go eyes closed on the Corsair Carbide 400R or 500. I had Antec 300, good at cooling, nightmare at cable management. I have Antec 900, which is superb at cooling, but again nightmare if you are running 3-4 videocards and some hdds. Yes sure you can hide some cables in the back and has the vent on the bottom for PSU which is great but I would still go Carbide 400R.

Is there something wrong with the Corsair 600T that makes it worse than the 400/500R?

I thought as much... I think I've settled on the corsair one... now to choose between the SE and the normal one... Any thoughts? I know that the SE comes with the window... but like I asked before, does the white finish pick up dust and grime easily?

Dust and grime? Not really... shouldn't be anything you need to worry about.

Other than the color difference, and the window accessory, is there any real difference between the two types of the 600T?

no side fan. one review mentioned that this kept the GPU at highest temps. Hot GPU : noisy PC.
