I would personally go with the Haf 942, but in your case, I would take the 922.

I'm just not a fan of Mid-Tower.

I only use aluminum cases. I can't stand cheap plastic and steel boxes.

That said... I'm looking for a reason to justify buying the Storm Trooper. lol

That case is damned impressive. Great set of options. Stealth look, no glaring lights or gaping holes. Checked it out?

Buy what you like, a case is just a case. What's the issue? Aesthetics? Room for 20+ hard disks? Fancy lights (Can always be removed). Look at the specs and pics and buy as your heart wants!

Exactly what he said... :toast:

Just go with what fits your personally and needs best. Don't buy a case just because it is recognized as the best, sure, it might have a lot of cool things, but maybe does not fit your configuration.

+1 on that
if i was buying i would need it to be easily accessible, screwless is great, holes for cables, plenty of airflow with effective filtration which should be easy to clean.
Im jealous of my bros Raidmax case because both side panels r a snap to open, where as mines are heavy and require 2 screws
