corsair 700D? that would be my choice. the hurrican has recieved many good reviews but i checked it out at microcenter and was not as impressed as the corsair and HAF. none the less when it comes to cases at equal price ranges, get the one you like looking at the best.

both the 700 & 800 are labeled as "Obsidian", you would need to check cyberpower for the exact one

800D is arguably the best case on the market... IMO. If you have that as an option & can budget it in, I'm 100% in agreement with that case.

I'm a day or two away from my Corsair 650D purchase :D

It is about an inch smaller across the board...

Raven: 25.98" x 11" x 24.25"
800D: 24" x 9" x 24"

Stick with the Corsair 800D. As I stated earlier, it is probably the best case on the market (well outside of some of the high highend Lian Li cases & a few Speciality Cases :)  ). I would pick it over the Lvl 10 GT any day (IMO).

1) Water-Cooling need is up to the user... IMO. You have those that use it for higher overclocks and those that use it for a quieter PC. The only consent in WC, is do your research upfront and understand how to setup & maintain before investing.

2) The Corsair 800D is great all around case... WC or Air. I wouldn't worry about it either way you go... Air or WC. The HAFX is probably the better Air case but I personally like the looks of the 800D better.

3) The most important thing to remember is a case purchase is a PERSONAL decision. What one person likes doesn't mean everyone will like. You are buying a case that you have to 1) look at everyday and 2) work with everyday, so get the one you like not necessarily what I might like or another person may recommend. They are just that... A recommendation to give you options to decide on what you want.

It isn't that difficult to maintain. You just have to know how and do the "scheduled maintenance". I would highly recommend doing your own research upfront before the purchase and than go from there. If you have doubts, I would go with air cooling.

I wouldn't get an 800D for Aircooling, but for WCing its the tits. Such a nice case.

If you want aircooling you can't beat the RV02/FT02.

Also, I kinda feel like if you're gonna go WC'ing, then you should probably build it yourself. If your confident enough to build a WC system, then you know you'll have no problems maintaining it.
