    Weolcome to TPU!

    And in this case I'd go with the HAF - more airflow.

    well it depends on what u wanna do with Oc´n on air or watercooling, the Cosmos "S" could also be a solution if u go on Air, since the Cosmos 1000 is more a watercooling case from it´s build the HAF would be my third choice, i own a Cosmos 1000 and i started modding for watercooling atm ....

    the cosmos 1000 runs good on air if u don´t own a 140 TDP Cpu and a 4870 x2 oven hehe

    it´s all up to you

    I agree, the original Cosmos has been known to have some problems with heat, especially in the hard drive area...

    The HAF is probably going to work just as well/better than the Cosmos for watercooling, and I would believe that the Cosmos S is going to be more money than he wants to spend...

    ^^

    yeeah but the HAF looks kinda cheap (not in price) from it´s build to me, the fillport plastik slide and the case by it´s own.....

    i would prefer Cosmos (S) :rockout:

    if u wanna spend a few bucks more checkout the Cosmos "S" good Airflow lotta mesh where hot air can get out

    In short, yes.

    I own a Cosmos S. Great airflow! But pricey. Very pricey.

    Even though the HAF has some plastic parts, the build quality, imo, is amazing. I bought one this week and i love it. But yes i think the Cosmos looks a little better but if its pure cooling muscle you want, go with the HAF.

    I agree. I've owned both. If its looks you're after, the 1000 is def the way to go. But if its cooling thats important to you, the HAF is a BEAST. EVERYTHING in my system dropped 3-8 degrees C (depending on the component) when I moved to the HAF.

    spend a few bucks on Scythe Slipstream 1200 and remove the stock fan can give you same result

    good cooling and great look :p

    True, but I can almost guarantee, you throw that Scythe in the HAF, and you'll get even cooler.

    Well, it´s really up to him what he can afford, air or water and what he likes from the Style,
    For me the HAF might be a great Case what the airflow is up to and price !! , but for the rest it doesn´t fall in my range of choosen cases..... focus is only on Airflow instead of design, a mix of both would be a shooter i bet

    Have they modified the HAF to include dust filters? If you have dust or know that dust can accumulate inside your case you may want to think twice until they include the necessary filters to at least prevent the majority of it from infesting your PC components.

    IMO, it's can be a very tedious task having to clean the inside of your case every few weeks.

    Vote for the HAF932 here!

    It's all in what you want really. They both have plastic in them so saying oh the HAF is a plastic case is BS. it has a plastic tray up top & the front side that house the drives are plastic but that's it. don't know about the cosmos as I haven't actually had one in front of me to look at. I like the HAF cause it's a tougher looking case than the cosmos I think anyways. That's just me & it's all setup for water cooling.

    Oh & hey it has a fan spot in the bottom to just like the Cosmos does. :rolleyes: 2 actually if you want to put your psu up top & use 2 fans up there as well.
