Probably because they were expensive. The CM 690 III cost 8K at the time.
CM H500 was a pretty good choice, heard it first from Paul's Hardware, almost forgot, then later saw it again on r/Battlestations a few weeks ago. 200mm is surely rare, not to forget at 8k+ in India, not many spend that much on a cabinet.How come all the cabinets having 200mm fans are the ones I am hearing about only now? I guess not many 200mm fans cabinet get that much attention compared to usual popular models.
You didn't order it from amazon fulfilled seller? Usually the other sites(prime,mdcomputers,vedant,theitdepot) pack cabinets really well.LoL I recieved cabinet today, it was completely shattered inside, didnt bother taking it out..
Hope amazon gives proper replacement.. I asked for refund but they denied, citing seller doesnt have refund policy.
Now I am afraid of these tempered glass cabinets, maybe i did a mistake choosing a tempered panel
Tempered glass is the trend right now. Many people buy tempered glass cabinets online, some get broken due to shitty courier guys. Don't put lack of tempered glass as a requirement as you will likely then have to sacrifice some other stuff as well, most likely you will end with an inferior case.Okay, So I got the replacement, immediately I filed a refund request. I didn't open it. If it is approved, I'll order a cabinet WITHOUT tempered glass.
Sorry to bump this again, can you guys recommend good cabinet with good airflow, cable management, minimum 3 3.5 inch slots but no tempered glass.. Transparent plastic side panel is fine.. Mid tower only.
I know this is old school requirement and no retarded mInImAlIsM, but my experience with NX800 proved to me durability > looks. I might switch to a different city and I don't want to ship this cabinet there. My deep cool tesseract lasted me 7+ years, and its still solid, except it doesnt have much room for cable management.
Kindly suggest @whitestar_999 @chimera201 @anupam_pb
I will check. As for overkill,yes for someone not using more than 3-4 hdd it is overkill but I can certainly make good use of it.Can you compare above with deepcool dshield v2. Seems neutral in terms of looks, is cheap and even though has only 2 3.5 inch space, I can expand into a 5.25 inch space with the saved cash.
If I'm not paying that premium for looks do you think the antec cabinet is worth it ? I imagine cable management would be good, but it has overkill amount of disk storage space I think, which is more suited for a server.
I'm okay with buying it if quality is good and it's worth it.
So I bought deep cool tesseract from overclockerszone..
I'm well satisfied with cabinet . Initial impressions for cable management space is mediocre but I will make do because of psu shroud which should hide most of the cables underneath.
Cabinet finish quality is surprisingly good, definitely way better than expected. Much better than entry level tesseract.
It comes preassembled with Mobo standoffs and has a pouch full of screws and zip ties as well. Gj deepcool
