Gaming PC Case question


I am debating between the

Corsair Obsidian 500D CC-9011116-WW Black Aluminum / Tempered Glass ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

and the

PC-O11 Dynamic Tempered Glass ATX Mid-Tower Computer Case - Black

My main concern is with cable management. I like the ability to hide the cables in a back compartment.

Both cases would meet my CPU/MoBd/GPU specs. I think that I slightly prefer the astectics of the Corsair, but I would like to get any feedback.

    Hello @RPB_Newbee and thanks for posting on the Microcenter Community Forum. We'd recommend the Corsair Obsidian as well. It has cable management features and covers that should be clean to setup. The PC-O11 is a good tower as well but cable management may not be as straightforward as the Corsair.

    If you really understand your cables, where they go and how to leverage the PC-O11 surround how to hide them, then go with that case. Otherwise stick with the Corsair.

    Thanks! MicroCenter does not seem to carry that Corsair model. Id it still something that I could order here?

    @RPB_Newbee what store are you near (ex., City, state)? We may have the Corsair Obsidian 500d RGB SE tower.

    If prefer the CC-9011116-WW Black Aluminum, you may have to look at Amazon or Newegg to obtain this case. Unfortunately we do not have it in stock at this time and no information for if or when we'll have it.
