I am thinking about choosing the color of this housing and I have concerns about the white color, will it not turn yellow with time? Nowhere have I found real photos of this housing in both white and anthracite gray (can anyone take such a picture in normal daylight and post them here?). Thanks in advance.

Older PC cases, like NZXT Phantom, did had the issue of plastic fading faster than the metal and resulted in uneven coloring issue. However, i haven't heard newer cases from top brands (e.g Phanteks, Corsair, NZXT) having different rate of color fade issue.

For more real life pics of P600S, here are several examples;

Thank you for your answer, it cleared some of my doubts. I also found a Cooler Master MasterCase SL600M at a similar price and now I have to choose between this two, any suggestions? (I will check later some tests for the coolness of these cases). Thanks in advance.

Since choosing a PC case is personal choice, i can not suggest which case to go for.

However, I, personally, don't like solid front and top panel cases since they handicap the PC's airflow considerably. While this can be countered with high static pressure fans at high RPM, those fans also increase the noise coming out of the PC case, just to have proper airflow in such solid panel design cases.

Going from a purely looks perspective the White is really nice and clean, but the Grey is something different, you don't see many of those around. I guess yellowing these days would be more to do with environment, if you were smoking in the room it would probably impact the colour, but I imagine that the bigger companies have largely dealt with that old yellowing issue.
I agree with the above comment about the airflow being important. Depends on how the PC is going to be used as to how much airflow and temperature is an issue. I see the P600S has a removable front panel so that is good cause it gives you options!
Just my newb opinion :) Good luck
