Corsair Carbide Series 500R Vs Antec 902 V3

I've watched and read numerous reviews of both these cases and I just can't decide which one is best, so I'm handing it over to you guys to help sway me, one way or the other.

If you leave a comment with an answer, I'd appreciate it if you could give your reasons as to why; please tell me what you like/dislike about them. Anyone with first-hand experience with either, or even both of these cases, would be particularly invaluable!

Also, I'd prefer to avoid water-cooling at this stage, this will be my first build and I have a budget to stick to. :P

  1. The 500R is the better choice. Antec makes good cases but the only one i like is their Lanboy. the 500R had my interest a few weeks ago. Until i decided to go ahead and be future proof and get a Full Tower. I got the Cooler Master Trooper
  2. The Antec 902 is a great case i have one.
    Excellent build quality and cooling.
    Problem is the USB3.0 is cable pass thru to the mobo rear ports.
    The Corsair is a newer case and the USB3.0 plugs directly into the mobo 19pin header.
    If your mobo has that feature some don't.
    Both are great cases.
    Buy whichever case appeals to you most..
  3. Def the 500r but the CM Storm Trooper if you want the best for $150.

    The Fractal Arc is also a very good choice.
