Part of me wants the CM H500P Mesh, part of me wants to swap put my cpu cooler which prohibits side fan installation currently then deck out all possible 6 120mm fan spots with maybe max cfm or a mix of solid cfm+ rgb.

Anyone have both to compare? i do enjoy lower gpu temps and that side fan certainly does what no newer cases does. Cable management has been a chore but with modular psu and all i have somewhat managed it better then ever before. Currently its sorta a mess as i had plans to hop on a CM H500P Mesh. I will prob clean up if i opt to stay with this. Its like a old friend, its been through many builds going back to 2006. This one is a later revision with usb 3.0 which i use mainly for 2.0 devices.

I'd recommend the Antec NX800 but it's hard to get right now: https://antec.com/product/case/nx800.php
Nice, sorry for the late response i got NO notification about a response. Thanks i will have a good look at that. Yeah it looks like a Antec 900 successor and if a bit cheaper then CM H500p Mesh i will be all over it. I loved this Antec 900 but its seen better days.

CM cases are usually pretty solid. I love the two big 200mm fans.
Yeah my first one. I really wanted that NX800 but yeah that was not gonna be happening. The H500P Mesh will be fine. :) May be doing some mods to max out airflow like removing front filter and honey comb cover on rear and swapping the fans for 110cfm ones. I believe the current 3 fans all do like 75cfm?
