Hi everyone,

I just registered in this Forum in the hope that somebody can help me.

I'm currently trying to decide on a case for my new Build. As the PC is to my left I would love to have a case with the Window on the right, so I looked for inverted Cases but there isn't that much out there.

Currently I'm looking at the following 3 Cases:

Corsair Carbide 600C

Silverstone FT04

be Quiet! Dark Base 700 (Airflow seems pretty bad?)

Overall i`m looking for a case with a good compromise between Airflow and Noise.

If there isn´t anything on the market like this i probably would look at a Fractal Design Define R6 or something similar.

I'm also open to other suggestions if you have some.


The rest of the build will look like this:

PSU: be Quiet! Straight Power 11 550W

Mainboard: MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC

RAM: 16GB G.Skill Ripjaws 3200MHz CL16

CPU: Ryzen 5 2600X

CPU Cooler: Scythe Ninja 5

GPU: Gainward GTX 1080Ti Phoenix

SSD: 500GB/1TB Crucial MX500
Thanks in advance for your help and sorry if I made some mistakes as English isn't my first language.

Greetings CeTanu

Ok, so it´s now between these 4:

  • Silverstone FT04 (~80€)
  • Silverstone KL07 (~85€)
  • Fractal Design Define R6 (~116€)
  • Corsair 600C (~130€)

I would prefer the FT04 or the 600C for the Window on the right side but if you tell me one of the other 2 or another Case would be a better choice then i would reconsider.
As i have already ordered the rest of the Hardware i would be really grateful if someone can help me as i just can´t make up my mind.

Thanks in advance.
CeTanu

If reverse window is your thing, then the Corsair is better than the FT04. You may or may not like the stock fans.

I don't see a thermal comparison for all four...but, you can see the differences between the R6 and the KL07 at Gamer's Nexus. CPU temps are comparable, GPU temps favor the KL07.
