Hi guys,

I can't make up my mind on which case to get :/

I know i want
  • close to completely quiet at Idle
  • also quiet and good thermals at Load.
  • nice looking case
I have quiet hardware components Ryzen 3600, Gtx 1660 a big CPU cooler from Be quiet.

Which of the cases are best in terms of Thermals and Noise?

The phantex p600s Can be closed off completely which means it can be quiet but front cover can be moved which is nice.
The S2 mesh is quite open at the top and noise must more easily travel through the mesh., Also the top is open and exposed to Water spilling.
The R6 looks so closed off that it would not perform as well as Phantex in terms

Which one do you recommend? And which one looks best to you?

The downside of those designs is increased case temps due to reducing the airflow, which means higher idle and load cpu + gpu temps, which will give their fans a reason to run faster.
Kinda defeats the whole silent purpose...
Here's one review of the case: https://www.guru3d.com/articles-pages/phanteks-eclipse-p600s-review,1.html
It's fairly new, so more reviews should be pending...

The S2 mesh is quite open at the top and noise must more easily travel through the mesh., Also the top is open and exposed to Water spilling.
I don't see a problem. Warm air can get out more easily... but water spilling? Is the case going to sit on the floor, or perhaps someone has a clumsy streak?

The S2 is kind of redundant against the R6:

Don't get too hung up on a sealed case, or the soundproof technobabble. If it's poorly designed, everything's going to run warmer and louder as a result, regardless of what the case has been lined up with.
Airflow focused cases will cool better, and some of them will be even quieter than the silent models for the reasons I already mentioned.
