the HAF(s) is a better case all around. though i do like the pred more than what dell did to the new cases /vomit. i just upgraded a friends pred and i asked him why he didn't just upgrade to a HAF...and his reply was honest and funny.

"i paid $3,000 for this pos so i am going to use it till it disolves".

made me :laugh:

Antec 902 supposedly offers similar airflow to the 932

Looks like a Cylon from the newer BSG series. Airflow doesn't look to good though.

Hey I bought the Haf but come on it is not the best looking case out there. :) I dont even think its in the top 500 on looks. But its probably in the top five for air flow. Thats why I bought it. But for looks the Pred blows it away, and I am impressed by how solid it feels, well built. Has four fans in it so I dont think it will be that bad on air flow. But thats what mods are for. Blow hole on top would or will be easy enough. Here's some pics of inside. :D
