Windows 7: Which case is better?

Which case is better?

Well, I'm gunna be building a computer for the first time (as seen in my last thread here). I was carefully comparing some parts (and still kinda am), and found a few other cases cheaper (except the last, but because it has 8 fans), and also looks like some could be better functionality-wise, fan/cooling-wise and room-wise, because I'm going for a top end gaming computer, so I'm assuming (remember, first time maker here) that the components are going to be considerably bigger than normal ones, but all the cases are full-size so it should be OK. Here's the list of the cases:

The case I was considering first: Antec Twelve Hundred Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case

XCLIO Blackhawk Color Black Finish 0.8 mm SECC / ABS Plastic ATX Full Tower Extreme Cooling PC Case

NZXT Zero Black/Silver Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case


XCLIO A380COLOR-PLUS Black 1.0 mm SECC / ABS Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

XCLIO 1000 Black / Silver 1.0mm SECC Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Personally i would choose the "NZXT Zero Black/Silver Aluminum ATX" but if if you plan to use plenty of fans maybe the "XCLIO A380COLOR-PLUS Black 1.0"? You could also google "Aerocool" first link that comes up - a pretty nice make of atx cases with good cooling facilitys

I'd go with Cooler Master's HAF 932 (It's my current case). Plenty of rooms, plenty ventilation, large silent fans, good build quality overall.

I think I'll go with zzz's suggestion, looks like air ventilation is great with 3 230mms and a 140mm. Also a user review said it was quite wide and spacious, plus it looks awesome and is $30 cheaper than what I was going for.

If you don't like the look of the 932, and you can wait a week or two for PC shops to get it in stock, Coolermaster have just announced the release of their HAF X (HAF-942)
HAF X - Cooler Master
Looks better, and has 4 200mm fans, rather than 3.

Good choice anyway with the 932. I hope you like it.

lol, that's subjective.

They are both pretty unique in the looks department ')

The HAF X has the advantage with dust filters though.

I've been reading up on the HAF X and I really like it... best case I've seen in a while at least for me. The only thing I can think of that it doesn't have is a removable motherboard tray.
