I need some help deciding between the HAF-X and the CM Storm Stryker. They both look nice but IMO the Stryker looks a bit better but I want a case that will last and have good airflow to the components, would there be a big difference between these 2 cases? I will be using the case for gaming mainly and want a case that will last me a long time, so that I will be able to have several builds in it and it will be easy to upgrade parts.
Personally I find the Stryker's looks a bit off-putting but it's \a good case.....Id grab the Corsair 500R tho which us a better case ...and it's a lot cheaper, especially in combo with Corsair PSU's, ya can save a bundle
In terms of air cooling, there shouldnt be any real difference between them. More airflow beyond a point just doesn't do anything. Water-cooling support is the real difference between the cases. The Stryker cant hold a triple rad at the top, the HAF-X can.
So if water isnt a concern, go with whichever you think looks better. There will be no real difference between the two once you close the side panel. If custom water is a concern, then go for the HAF-X.
