The Corsair 250D. It is the only watercooling-optimized mITX case that is affordable, built well + actually small *cough* BITFENIX *cough* and good looking.

I read that as 350D and I was like what? 

 

Best designed? Designed for what? Most cases have a specific use-case in mind. I love me a node 304.

Hmmm...

 

My favorite case design aesthetically, is the 900D. However, I hate the terrible qualities of brushed aluminium, and it's got too much plastic for me.

 

My favorite case design mechanically, is the TX10 from CaseLabs. I've watched review after review, and build after build with this thing, and I just love it. Space isn't really an issue for me, and this is a monster case, that comes with all of the bells and whistles.

 

Favorite Size conscious case: I'm a fan of the Air 540.

All of this...

Now that Phanteks have announced their mATX line, I'm going to have to go with the Phanteks Enthoo Mini XL, the first no-compromise m-ATX case.

In My Opinion The Best Designed Case is the Corsair Air 540

In Terms Of Functionality It Really Gives you an "A" Grade Airflow

The Sleek Look is OutStanding

The Dual Chamber Design Took The Cake From The Table


I Love Dogs and Video Editing

Volumes by external dimensions:

Volume Corsair 250D: 28.1 L

Volume Bitfenix Phenom: 30.86 L

The difference is not that big. Of course the Prodigy is silghtly retarded with it's handles making it 36.26 L. Only around 4 L more and you have the volume of the Arc Mini R2

250D is a bit fatter than the prodigy and won't fit most airline's overhead cabin so this whole thing about 250D being portable is pointless. whereas the prodigy will fit just fine + it has got handle and support FULL length GPU like the Vapor R9 290X.

"handles"

 

Yeah, handles made out of plastic.

 

I never said it was portable, I said it was small. I personally don't care about whether it fits in an airplane overhead because I don't fly, nor do I transport my PC farther lengths than which can be traversed in my car.

 

The most important part about this topic is the last word of the title. "Opinion"

 

The 250D is shorter (height) than the Prodigy, can in theory take a heavier system (since there is no worry of the plastic handles cracking -- something I have seen happen before), has more sensible I/O placement, is a better built case and it is better looking in my opinion.

handles aren't made out of plastic and is very strong, check out singularity videos on youtube, that case is very good for water cooling. the whole point of having a small case is for portability. I don't hate the 250D but I just think their cooling options are limited i.e. tower air cooler, full length gpu. they do look good (eventhough not as good as the prodigy in my opinion) it takes up more room on a desk than the prodigy coz it is wider

Yes, the handles are made out of plastic, unless I am crazy.

 

@Jaybird are they made out of plastic or metal?

 

To the bolded point, I say not necessarily. It takes up more room on a desk widthways because it has a more intelligent layout which doesn't make cable management or PSU compatibility a pain in the ass. The 250D is part of the Obsidian Series for a reason. It is a watercooling case, not an aircooling case. They even made the case so it perfectly fits an H100i. And it can fit a full length GPU just fine. It can fit a VaporX R9 290X or almost any GTX 780 Ti (with the exception of the K|NGP|N, DirectCU II and Classified because of their absurd height.

H440 Razer and black blu (red is mainstream) and a enthoo pro. Im struggling on wich to get :)

 

the razer H440 or the upcoming Be Quiet! m600 case, i would drop the ODD section on the h440 without doubt just because a white didn't get me over, but the m600 has a ODD, is black and silence optimized, so it is pretty hard on what case it would be.

 

the m600 it is.


May the light have your back and your ISO low.
