Hi Smilie


It actually isn't considered a repost. If a post is a week old with no new posts in the last 3 days (Other than OP) we will leave the threads separate. The other thread was a week ago with no posts so this is fine to remain separate.

You can see it about halfway down "To merge or not to merge".

This is a good case that's almost the same as the R6 that gets great reviews. The difference is that the R6 still has a space for an optical drive (a reason the front panel swings out) and the S2 loses the 5.25 but has 5 USB ports in front with one being a USB C. R6 only has 4 USB with none being USB C

Reviews cite poor quality and videos showing flimsy panels and vents.

and front panel doesn't swing to either side like on S6. Waiting for S6 blackout to go on sale, missed one last fall.

In for 1 - R6 is nice but that deal is gone and if you think about it, the design is outdated ( few use HDDs because everything is in the cloud or on your local storage device.

you could have compared it to so many good cases, including other NZXT cases, but you went ahead and suggested a junk case. H500i is meant for looks and nothing else. that specific case has horrible airflow, there are simply not enough fan spots in that case to keep powerful hardware cool and definitely not enough for AIO coolers or custom loops. if you put in a 240mm/280mm CPU/GPU cooler in there, you're going to be dumping hot air into the case and suffocating your air cooled components. the vertical GPU mount is way too close to the glass which will cause air cooled GPUs to run a lot hotter. the drive mounting options are also very limited. you don't get options removable cages like you do with other cases

Define S2, R6, Phanteks P600s, NZXT H700, etc are all better cases with more passing and active cooling options and storage options.

that's not quiet it. R6 was in development before USB C became a thing. there is an optional upgrade to add type C ports to it. i got the R6 because i couldn't wait to build my rig, and added 2 type C ports and 2 regular USB 3 ports in the 5.25" bay with a panel add on. something like this: https://www.amazon.com/EZDIY-FAB-...RNQ29?th=1 i can't find the exact one i bought rights.
