Best PC Cases With Front 200mm Intake

Which PC cases that have a front 200mm fan mount are the best to use in a new build? A top 200mm fan mount is also preferred but by no means necessary to be what I am looking for.

A case I was looking at was the Corsair 600T but I did not like the fan controller (not a big 'fan' of them, too many cables).

I don't like the all the cheap plastic feeling components on the front and top of the case, but I do like the 5.4" bays a lot, especially the two hot swap bays. I'd say I prefer the 600T to that case, but thanks for the good try. I do appreciate your help.

On sale: $139.99 with $15 rebate card. and it looks like another $25 off with posted promo code.
Check it out, it is a fabulous case.


A very cool case overall. I love how all the fans have blue LEDs and the fan controller has LED control, but not very fond of how all fan controllers bring a mess of cables with them, but that's 1ust something I'll have to work around if I want a good case :p 

Also I saw no mention as to whether the 3.5" drive bays are removable or not? I like to leave a pretty clean front, letting the intake fan in the front work as efficiently as possible.

Not removable, but good airflow over the harddrives into the case, plus the side fan works well. Cable management is really good, so all the fan wires I didn't need are stuffed over on the right side our of sight. i will try to figure out how to post a picture (again) and will post one or two.

No worries, you don't need to go through the effort for the pictures, I'll google it. I'll be back in around 9 hours with a few more points.

Looks very nice. I am definitely considering that case!

For about the same price as a 600T, you might consider the NZXT Phantom 630. Looks are subjective and I think both cases look awesome, but the P630 design is two years newer with up-to-date features. I own the P820 but like the smaller P630 more.

It's a nice case overall, but very large. I also am not too fond of how the front panel design blocks part of the 200mm fan. If I get a case, it will blend design and productivity, with the latter being more important.

I would say no to that case, but thanks for your try. The help is always appreciated.
