Question 800D?

Hi everyone first time posting but have been reading for last few months. Well like the title says im debating to buy an 800D. I like the sleek look, its black, and the window. Im going to be sleeve wires so I want to see my hard work. But the 800d I feel is a great case but it is now sort of outdated. I like the cosmos 2 but too expensive. Also heard 800d has some bad airflow. So if any can recommend this case and why it is still a quality case or a other case like it. I saw the tj04e but I would like a full tower. So thanks for reading.

The 800D is a classic case like the Stacker 810 and a few others and will never be outdated

Nothing wrong with the 800d IMO. Perhaps you spend a little more on better quality fans and the airflow problem goes away.

It is a great case. As some stated, just get better fans instead of using the corsair ones.
