Default which case

deciding between a lian-li pc-65 or a raidmax 668wsp. either way the psu i'd be getting is an antec true550. i like that the raidmax has 6 fans (vs. the pc-65's 4) and that the drive bays face outward. everyone keeps talking about how nice the cases made by lian-li are. both have removable mobo trays. price isn't an issue.

raidmax: http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...156-150&depa=0
lian-li: http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...112-024&depa=1

thanks

I suggest the Lian-Li 65. But for more options, try this site out. Tons of great cases.

Man, i cant blame you for leaning towards the raidmax, but the lian li is a better case

I would say get the raidmax its more colorful and has more fans and is cheaper than the lian li case.
But if you what quality get the lian li case.

it's just that... the raidmax has (or seems to have) all the features the lian-li has and more. all the while being cheaper, having more fans, and looking nicer (imo). i'll sleep on it and decide tomorrow lol.

Heres what i say, if the Raidmax makes you happy, then go for it. Just because its not the best case, dont mean you must get somthing else. Always go for what personally indulge you.
