Evolv X vs Dark Base 700

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm looking to buy a new case in the $200 price range. The 2 that  mentioned in the title are the ones I like and are available. I like the the more simplistic design of the Dark Base 700, but I was wondering if there is any good reason except for looks that I should go with the Evolv X, because I've heard it is one of the best cases out there.

 

My other considerations were O11 from Lian Li and Meshify S2.

I have the older Evolv case?  And it's a fuckin' dream.  I love it.

 

I have no intention of replacing the case when I build my next PC.

I've also got an Evolv. If it wasn't so massive I'd love it. Great airflow, easy to build in and has kept my pc safe. Just keep in mind it's a large case. Even compared to your current Define C. I'd use some cardboard to mock up the size of the Evolv and make sure you have room and a good spot for it. The Evolv X ends up being 240x520x520. On paper it doesn't look that much bigger than your current one, but it is. You're looking at 36.8 liters in the Define C to 64.9 liters in the Evolv X.
