Help deciding on a case?

So, I've been looking at cases, and I've narrowed down my choices, however I was wondering if any of you guys could offer insight or comments? or maybe even suggestions? I need the best airflow possible, as I live in a tropical country, and when it's summer here, it goes around 30-40C.

So yeah, the 3 are:

Antec Twelve Hundred -
Cooler Master HAF 932 -
XCLIO Windtunnel Black Advanced -

Thanks! :D

  1. I have the HAF 932 and I am very pleased with it. It has been cool and quiet. Setup was easy and there is a lot of room inside. I can't provide a comparison against the other two as I've never used them but I would definately buy another HAF 932.
  2. I have a friend that had the Antec P183, then moved to an Antec 1200 and will never need or get another case.

    It has 6 fans and each of them has a controller. At the lowest settings, they are very quiet and has enough air flow to keep every component cool.

    I can't comment on the other cases, but I am going to get the Antec 1200 case as well.

    It all comes down to your personal looks and price you can afford.
  3. I wrestled w/ the same decision and went with the 1200. It has pluses and minuses as compared to the HAF 932 but the biggest advantage to my mind is it fits a CP-850 PSU.

    Antec 1200 w/ CP-850 = $244

    HAF932 / Corsaur HX850 = $350

    Both PSU's get a 10 "Performance" Rating from but the CP-850 also makes's Editor's Choice List, a testament to it's quietness.

    If not building right away, you may want to wait for the DF-85 part of Antec's new Dark Fleet Series....shown at CES in January, rumor has it hitting shelves this month. Thermaltake and Coolermaster also had new things to show at CES.
