I wasn't expecting my newish rig to garner so much attention. Although after the headaches I've gotten trying to figure this thing out I can't say I hate it.

As for display; yes, just temperature (which require probes I'm not fond of using) and RPMs, and the wire management could be better...and will be once I've outlined everything. I'm OCD about that stuff. Hah.

But if everyone bought the same case, I wouldn't love my Thermaltake.

I haven't heard of that brand before, and I can't find that case anywhere else, so I wouldn't be able to tell you

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 - $279

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.

I reviewed the CM HAF-X and have and currently use the 800D and in my opinion they are both fine cases, however, the 800D is of better build quality and excellent for liquid cooling adaptations. The only area that the HAF-X had an edge is in cooling with air.

I also reviewed the 600T for Corsair and it is one of the sweetest mid-towers I have worked with.

Great looking case, but not nearly a 100 dollars better. I think Corsair is doing themselves a disservice with their pricing as reflected by the small sales sampling (reviews) at newegg.

As for water cooling, yeah, it's been said that the 800D is the better choice; however you did note in your review of the HAF X......

Quote:
Liquid cooling capabilities are found also with the ability to conceal a triple radiator up to 60mm thick. Both 240 and 360mm radiators are supported for diehard water cooling enthusiasts.
Point being that the HAF X isn't a slouch in this area either. So again, is the 800D nearly 100 dollars better? Depends....

Honestly though, If I were building a custom water cooled system, the 800D would be the better looking choice.

BTW I did/do like your review on the HAF X and would urge anyone looking into the case to read it - the CM HAF-X

My thoughts as well - https://www.sevenforums.com/overclock...r-s-haf-x.html
