Corsair 500D SE RGB or 680X?


Recommended Posts

Hello dear builders,


I'd like to get your advice for my case choice as I couldn't find a way out of my questions. :) First of all, I definitely liked the look of both cases; however, I'd like to get your advice for their cooling performance.


CPU cooling will not be a problem as I will use an AIO; however as for GPU, I have an EVGA RTX2080ti Black Edition which gets real hot in certain cases. It seems like 500D SE RGB only has 3 front and 1 rear fans whereas 680X has 3 front fans, 2 bottom fans (not included) and 1 rear fan. As for airflow performance, it of course seems like 680X might be more advantageous with 2 bottom as intake that directly blows towards the GPU, but not sure if it's worth. And of course one has Commander Pro and other only have a Node but I might always get a Commander Pro, but can't create new fan slots and thus leaning towards the 680X; however, is there anything I overlook? Which one do you think would be more futureproof and a great choice?


Thanks in advance,
