My System Specs

Default Help me decide...

Really tempted to flip cases... I narrowed it down to two... Which one would you get, and why?

1. Corsair Graphite 600TWM White Edition
2. Corsair Obsidian 650D

Will be on air, not water... Let me know! Thanks!

Hmmm, my first instinct is the 600T White Edition. But only if it's primarily a gaming rig. If it's a professional rig at all such as a video editing machine, then the 650D.

Feature wise, they are very similar. Different front usb, different fan controller, 600 has the removable top mesh, 650 has the top hot swap. The 650D is all steel with just the faux brushed aluminum front while the 600 has a lot more plastic.

Go with whatever tickles your fancy looks wise. Both are awesome.

Cases are all but identical when it comes to the interior.. its a matter of which exterior do you like.

I currently have an NZXT Lexa S, with cut-out fan grills at the top and rear, u-channel modded...it's great, but yeah, I'm bored and want to switch...the 650D/600T is more spacious behind the mobo for wire-routing; both got bigger fans; and I do turn-off the machine at night, so having the power switch outside the door-cover would be more convenient for me; etc...

both have sexy exteriors, LoL...Althoughhhh, I do like the white...hummm...

The white is a sexy case. If you prefer the look of molded plastic over steel (lots of people do) then I say go for it. It's a very handsome case.

650d for mounting a rad up top, plus metal > plastic.

Are you thinking of getting a fan controller in the future? If so then I'd go with the 650d.

Tough choice, heh. I'd say they're both good, so either one you pick would be fine.
