best case for me

by Tony-Driftking / April 20, 2015 10:22 PM PDT

Hi I am planning to buy a gaming case between these two corsair graphite 780t and 600t and cooler master haf x. so which one is best for airflow to keep my components cool. As the 780t doesn't have side panel fans and haf x have one 200mm and 600t also comes with optional mesh that can support 4 fans.If i get 780t then will it effect bad on my components as it doesn't have side panel fans or if it effects then which case is good for me?

In reply to: But which one

I've yet to see folk apply the word durable as that means we wear, pressure, or damage things on purpose (durable; hard-wearing. "porcelain enamel is strong and durable"."

All the cases I've used in decades have been durable and reliable. It's the fans and other things that wear out.

In reply to: but

All the cases I see are made of metals, paint and such. If you are wooed by brand, then pick that brand?

That's your choice.

In reply to: Once again but

Since I don't pay for brand I pick the one I like at the moment. I don't agonize because if I need to cut a hole in the case cover that's not a challenge.

However some folk can't decide and want others to pick. Try the cheaper one?

The pictures showed no side panel fans. But I did spy mesh areas that would help air flow.

Take a look at the Antec Mid towers..there are several...I use the 900 for one of my systems and it has plenty of cooling...for the money they are hard to beat.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
