    Hi guys, my current case is getting on my nerves ; its very small and has very limited airflow(and i recently dented it by dropping my brother's laptop on it), so I was thinking of buying a new case and have narrowed it down to these two. You may also suggest other cases, but I'm pretty set on either of these. My budget is around 200 euros, but I will be buying from Malta and not online.

    HAF is the best. I don't have it but it's definitely the best case on the market for non-watercoolers.

    Both are damn good cases, but imo the HAF932 is probably the most kickass out of the two. As-far-as airflow goes though, I think both would be nearly as effective. My 900 and 300 both are kickass cases as-far-as airflow is concerned.

    Though if it were me, I'd probably go with the HAF.

    Well its a matter of taste, and in that case I'd go with the HAF, too. I read some reviews about it out of interest, and its a really good case. And it has more than enough space.

    Personally I just ordered a Cosmos S yesterday. Its big, it's stylish and for me, it looks way better than the HAF. It would even fit in your budget I think. I do not like Antec cases, they're just ugly in my eyes.

    The HAF is definitely the way to go. It is much better then the Antec 1200, there is no competition.

    Thanks for the input guys - will probably pick it up this week. Do you suggest keeping the 230mm fan on the side or switch it with four 120mm fans?

    I suggest keeping the 230mm fan. Four 120mm ones would eventually move more air, but also be louder.

    HAF 932. why do you guys say it's a non-water cooling case? you can mount 2x 120mm x 240mm on the side panel, 1x 120mm x 360mm on the top panel and 1x 120mm x 240mm on the bottom.

    I have 4 900 cases and 1 - 1200 they are excellent cases but that Haf looks good too.
    Don't think you can go wrong on either. :toast:

    I guess with all that mesh and perforated parts allowing for high airflow, it just screams for air cooling.

    PS: Yum yum bumblebee bumblebee tuna...:D

    you know whats funny? the HAF 932 is actually cheaper than the Storm Sniper in Canada, it's the opposite in America.

    I like that the PSU can go up top or bottom.

    HAF is a good choice or better.

    -careful though, any of these cases are dust eaters...

    I forgot the whole meaning but i hope this is the right one

    HAF = High Air Flow
    9 - 9 inches width
    3 - 3 x 230mm fans
    2 - 2 PSU Mount
     
    DeltaFox and exo17 say thanks.
