I'm having a tough time making a decision on my case. I've narrowed it down to 3 models: Corsair 500r, Cooler Master 690 II, and the NZXT Phantom 410. Honestly, the Phantom 410 is my favorite case of the bunch. I love the look of the case, but the case (in red) costs much more than the other two. The cooler master and corsair cases both have rebates. Will I actually receive those or is it a lost cause? They are actually pretty large amounts of cash, so I want to know whether I will actually get that money back. Here are the cases and prices.


500R: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $70 (w/ $30 MIR)

690 II: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $50 (w/ $25 MIR)

Phantom 410: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=11-146-... $110

EDIT: I'm going to include a link to the rest of the parts in the build in case that makes a difference. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/pE2x

Thanks for replying. Do you think the 500R is worth $20 more than the 690 II?

Can't say since haven't used the 690 II. I'd go with whichever you like the looks of more if that's a big thing. Have fun either way!

Well its more bettwen 500R and Cm 690 II.

Both have great cabl manag /proper airflow (Cm 690 II can have more fans)
