    right.. i need a case with excellent cooling (which these three have) and quite a bit of space
    i'm going for a single gfx card setup so i dont think i'll need the masses of space the HAF and 1200 offer.. so i was thinking Antec 902.. BUT it's the same price as the HAF 932
    so.. i might as well get that
    HOWEVER the antec 902 is big enough and has dust filters and a fan controller... but is marginally louder.. which should i buy?
    also out of intrest.. if i keep my pc case in one of those pc alcoves (or the space in some desks where pc's are built to be put) would i still get decent airflow?

    PC alcoves are a no go for high performance PCs... and what about the dust in your room? If that is a problem go for antec ones

    my room doesn't seem that dusty
    i could always get a new pc desk with no alcove
    and just place the pc between the desk and the wall if you know what i mean?

    sure i do that. I think if you´re getting a single VGA setup and case on the table, go for 900 or 1200. The HAF will take to much desk space.

    CM690 for mid tower, HAF 932 for full tower, cant be beaten on air cooling performance IMO.

    see this, this, this and this or just search some HAF 932 threads. you should try and keep your case on the floor however this isn't always possible.

    you can always put it beside your desk the HAF 932 comes with optional casters (wheels). cool air will always rise from the bottom of a case and warm air will exhaust out the top you want it on the floor because it's the coldest in a room however it can be the dusty in some instances but like I said in my posts negative air pressure will generate more dust even with filters than positive however with positive your still going to get dust, dust is inevitable, filters impede air flow no matter what side the filter is on they can be as restrictive as radiators just buy a $5-10 can of compressed air (chemical free) and do monthly maintenance like people have been doing the last 20 years.

    The HAF is a huge case, but simply a pleasure to work with.

    Here's me with my new watercooled HAF 932:

    it's not that big it's pretty wide. I have seen taller in the old days servers used to run in these ugly beige super towers with 80mm fans they were huge probably another foot above that kid half way up his arms.
