Default Which color Corsair case?

i need help picking. I have BloodRage and 5870 so red and black theme but, I don't want to over do it. I'm leaning towards white.

The white.

If it were mine, I'd get creative with the white case, and splatter blood red paint on it.

I'd get the white, but only if it has all-black internals.

It does have black internals which is a great contrast to red and black. Now I have to wait because it's not out anywhere yet. Shipment is delayed which sucks because I want it now.

The White has a better front fan btw, but both are "lacking" in air cooling.

The fan configurations are actually different between the two colours? Or do you just mean the fan in the white one is better aesthetically?

The white has newer 200mm 1000rpm fans I believe. I'm going water w/ the Rasa kit anyways. No air for me.

Well, technically you still need air cooling on the radiator for the watercooling

... unless you watercool your watercooling...

Hang on, then your watercooling's watercooling will need aircooling... unless...

EDIT: Also, I would have gone with the black one, but maybe that's just me.

I suppose if you had a long enough chain of watercooling you could just stick the other end in the sea, or something. Then it's watercooling all the way B-)
