Which should I use for white build? Cooler Master H500P or Corsair Crystal 570x White

Do you know if the Crystal can house a 240mm and 360mm radiator at the same time? Don't mean to derail your thread, but I'm curious to know. 

Its got room for a 280mm or 240mm in the top and a 360mm (maybe 420mm if that exists) on the front.

 

Also /kill thread, I went with the 570x and it's amazing and I managed to perfectly cablemanage it

I'm building my first computer and am really stuck on which case I should get. I love the crystal 570x but all the problems with it make me nervous about buying a $180 case especially since there are usually no rebates on it. Also they don't sell the PSU shroud cover in white which is completely ridiculous and they never have the black one in stock. On the other hand I saw the H500P and really liked it. It's not especially aligned with my white themed build but its gray and could look good with white parts in it. It also is only $130 right now after MIR. It just isnt the square blocky all tempered glass feel that I really like about the 570x. Any help is very much appreciated.

Perhaps take a look at NZXT? They have a wide range of white cases. Personally, I really liked the Manta, H400i, and H200i. They all come in white variants. There is also a z370 mobo from NZXT that is white and customisable with colors. It is 300... but it is probably the most aesthetically pleasing mobo I have seen with a white design. Doesn't look too gamer-y with red accents I guess.

Between the two I'd go for the 570X. I have the black one and it's a nice case. It has a couple of downsides like the PSU shroud and cable management space on the back, but otherwise it's a fine case.

Personally I realy like the corsair case, it's realy clean, and aggressive at the same time.

I realy like the aesthetic of the 200mm fans in the cooler master case, It's realy unique and would work excellently with a white LED. But I don't realy like the angled fan grills on the top and front sides. I get they were trying for an sort of industrial look, but I don't think this works with the clean aesthetic of the rest of the case, Just looks a little cheap, as does the front IO. But opinions be opinions. I know a lot of people realy like the H500p but I personally dislike it.

yeah I'm worried since it's white then it'll look like trash with my black psu cables (I'm not rich enough for a RM750x White)

 

Also I should mention my parts.

NZXT is pretty cool, I'm thinking of upgrading to a kraken sometime in the future but there's too much white going on for my taste. Especially since I have all white components basically. Also they don't really have a 3 tempered glass case. The front of the cases are just plain white which isn't really my favorite look.

Hard to judge from a picture indeed, but I also have the 760T in white, which is quite white-white if you know what I mean. So if it's like that I'd be fine with it.

You pictured the white colored 570X though, not the RGB variant though.

 

But I wouldn't even consider the H500P personally, just garbage quality case with no airflow at all. The 570X at least has a bit of both.

Just so you know the H500P has kinda shite airflow. I'd go with the crystal


If I'm honest I spend more time playing with the hardware that I do playing on the hardware

Anyways, name aside

 

H500P? Crap. Garbage. Dont waste your money on it. However the upcoming H500P that has redesigned front and top panels is worth considering, but no word on when that will release. If you need it now, 570X. If you want a third option, Define R6, comes in Black, white, Gun metal gray and Titanium

Then I would either get the 570x, or look at the Define R6. Really cant go wrong with either, theyre both good cases, The R6 being better though overall.

The H500P has poor airflow and less-than stellar build quality. If it were me, I would buy the 570X or consider waiting for the H500M to hit shelves.

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

Here's a post I wrote about a H500P Remake, it's white and has a mesh front panel
 

The original H500P doesn't have "bad airflow", that's what the sheep say. If you look at the data, it has airflow above average, but it doesn't deliver on the high airflow that was heavily marketed

Regarding the Cooler Master ...

Watch the ces coverage on cases,Cooler master did a remake on the h500p they added mesh add ons for the top and front.They fixed the cheaply mounted front and top panels.And even offer it in white.Skip to about 6 mins in

 

And watch this

For a white mid tower the define r6 is best right now,The runner up to me is the lian li alpha 550,I do like the phanteks cases but they lack tempered glass in white and no usb c.If you want a cube case the core x5 and core x9 both come in white.
