The only plus I give the 800D over the HAF X is looks. Functionally they're both similar in performance as both provide outstanding wire management, cooling, accessories, and plenty of room for hardware.
However one could argue that for water cooling the 800D is the better choice as it is the larger of the two cases, but if you’re into air cooling the HAF X is the better choice due to its design; not that it isn’t suited to water cooling as well.
And if we look at price by newegg's standard….. Cooler Master HAF X
- $189 Corsair Obsidian 800D
I'm not knocking the 800D, I nearly got one while it was on sale for $225, but in the end the HAF X won out in size (smaller) and price (cheaper), plus the looks weren't such that it was a putoff for me.
However if I were to go mid tower that 600T looks pretty good.
