I am looking to buy a new case soon and I can not pick which one I want. I have narrowed it down between The rosewill Thor v2, nzxt switch 810 ,and the cooler master storm trooper but will take advice on any other cases. It will be either air cooled or i will buy a closed loop water cooler later.
My specs are
I5 3570k
Asrock z77 pro 3
gtx 560
8gb ram
500gb hard drive

My old case is the thermaltake v3 and most of it seems like it is made out of weak plastic that feels like it is going to break especially the front where the USB ports and head set plug ins is and can not fit a large heat sink.

Thanks for you all's help.

600t? Based on those cases, Storm Trooper.

I would recommend the Cooler Master HAF 932. This is a modest looking case with excellent build quality, cable management, and plenty of room. The entire case is made of steel and will take any sort of beating. I bought the Cooler Master HAF 912 several years ago, done a lot to it, but there isn't a single dent or scratch. There's more than enough room to put anything you want in it, and the airflow is really good.

I do not know how I missed the 600t. I notice it is only a mid tower so will I have enough room for a large air cooler or long video card. i also have looked at the HAF cases and am not a big fan of the way it looks.

Agreed, they do look dodgy. You can select between the switch 810 and storm trooper. Both have pretty much the same features, both look good (the storm trooper is a beauuty) Decide.

Here, this is my personal pick for my upcoming build. Corsair Obsidian 650D, AMAZING build quality, plenty of room, even fits the big 280mm radiator of the Kraken x60. It even has a HD dock on top and a hidden fan controller thrown in. LOTS of space for large video cards and air coolers as well. Should fit all current graphics cards, but you can reconfigure the HD bays to fit even longer ones. THe top HD bay can be moved down beside the PSU. Take a look at the video on the newegg page.

The 650d looks great but is there any difference other than appearance between it and the 600t.
