Corsair 650d vs CM enforcer

My build is currently in a coolermaster storm enforcer, however I ordered an h100 and it doesn't fit in the case like I thought I would. Should I upgrade to the 650d for just this reason? Or am I downgrading in someway? Which has better aircooling, cable management upgradable, etc

Price isn't an issue.

Specs:

3930k
Sabertooth x79
Ax850 Watt
Gtx 580
H100
600gb velocitaptor
240gb chronos DC

It's a good case, but keep in mind that (motherboard depending) you can't fit the h100 in push pull configuration into the 600t or 650d cases. I think you need something as big as the 800 for that.

Yeah I was thinking about the 800d but I heard that having all that extra space would produce more heat in an air cooled case. I generally am using aircooling with the exception of the h100. I also think that I'd have no use for such a big case since ill never do real watercooling or will I ever sli more than 2 video cards...



I mostly just want a case that is easily compatible with the h100 without doing some Modding, my current enforcer is not getting the right temps with the h100 because I couldn't fit it at the top of the case correctly...

push/pull isn't really necessary,just make sure you have high CFM fans.650D is a great case.

This may sound dumb but what are CFM fans?

Also, just to make sure you're saying: 650D > Enforcer

right?

Would there be any fans you'd recommend for the h100?

Also I heard that the USB 3.0 for the 650D sucks because you'd have to route the cable out the case and connect it to the back of the motherboard... That's kind of a drag, would there be a fix to that? Or is that problem fixed in newer models or something?

Cougar Vortex 120mm fans.
Do you have devices that use usb3.0?
I would either go with the 650D or the NZXT Switch 810../

Yeah I use a 2tb external storage drive with USB 3.0, I'll probably just not connect the front usb 3.0 headers...

And isn't the Switch 810 a little too big? The most I'd have in my case is two videocards and that's it.

That link was very informative on the case and is really making me wanting to purchase it.

You think that the 650D is futureproof considering I'll never go past dual SLI ?
