Which is better? They seem soo similar except for the extra $50 on the 650D price tag. Any opinions, airflow, water cooling, etc.?

esthetically the 650 is hands down the better looking of the cases.

IMHO the 650D> 500R

I am Biased because i have the 650D

Agreed, aesthetically the 650D is pretty ballin', but considering the practicality of each, the 500R with it's side mesh 200mm intake fan would work wonders for dual graphic card solutions (sli, crossfire), especially for cards that exhuast inside the case.

I've never had a 650D but I just got the 500R (dressed in white) for my new build and I love it. The only issue I had during the build was i couldn't get the rad and 2 fans from the H100 to both mount inside the case so in order to do a push pull with the H100 I had to remove the top mesh cover. It looks alright though, kinda like a couple carbs or a blower or whatever it is sticking out of the hood of a car.

Case has plenty of room behind the motherboard tray for routing cables and i really like being able to remove the HDD cages to get more air at my video card (hoping to upgrade to SLI soon)

The 500R is newer. I'm pretty sure they put more time into designing it since they just started going into the computer case area. Its cheaper though.

I would take the 500r over the 650d. With the 400r/500r, corsair really put an emphasis on cooling with these cases and to actually price them cheaper then their other line of cases was a great way to go. The 500r has the some of the same internals of the 650d while having way more options for mounting fans.

The 650D does look great, the whole obisidian series really does. It's elegant and has a nice brushed finish to the front of it, very awesome. The 500r is a lot more simplistic looking but I feel it offers more value because of all the cooling options. I have a 600T myself and while I do like it, I think the 500R would have been the perfect case for me... too bad it wasn't out yet at the time of my purchase.
