That's what HAF means, High Air Flow. Again, I know some about the HAF cases but very little about Xigmatek. I would suggest you read the user feedback from some places that sell them. I would suggest newegg just for research, but they are not carrying the Xigmatek you mentioned, only a referbished one with no feedback.
well i have bought both lol. Getting them in an hour,i will keep the one i want and give the other to a friend. And i couldnt find any feedback on this particular xigmatek case either even though its quite popular here but i really like the look of those kewl fans
XIGMATEK - PRODUCT
They wrote a book about you. "How to win friends and influence people"

Keep both and use them on a rotation, after one gets dusty strip it out and swap your stuff to the other one

Im leaning towards utgard since it feels more classy and has fan control,hafx looks flimsy to me but again im speaking just from looking at pictures from the internet. Any suggestions?
I too have an HAF X, and let me tell you, you could beat on it all day and not do it any harm.

It is a pretty solid piece of engineering.

Nearly breaks my back if I have to cart it anywhere.

The 912 is a smaller and lighter case than the X.

Also, the X was CM's flagship full tower case before the gargantuan Cosmos II came along.

Naw, that's too much work. Just use the second case to build a spare rig.

To some it might be classed as work yes, to others it could also be classed as fun!
I was kind of thinking once a year, not every couple of weeks

If you lived where I do and didn't run filters, it would be once every two weeks.
