  1. This is a matter of opinion and how you define airflow....

    I would say that the Antec 1200 and HAF 932 are at the top of most people's list. My vote goes for the Antec 1200 but I'm basis, since I have one :D
  2. The Coolermaster HAF 932 has excellent ventilation, airflow, and cooling. Just be aware that it is a huge beast. Plenty of room for pc components, a large tower style cpu heatsink, and mutliple long video cards. Tom's Hardware did a small comparison with a few other cases shortly after the HSF 932 was introduced. It came out on top for cooling. Technical reviews were very favorable. Take a good look at the exterior of the case. Some people love it and some people hate it. It is a matter of personal preference. There are three different versions of the case:

    The Antec 1200 is another large case with excellent airflow. It's right behind the 932:

  3. The best one for me is this:

    The problem is the price: Over 300€.

    Antec 1200 is cheaper and a very good option too. Anyway, that case don't have any holes at the bottom of the case for the psu and therefore you have to place it with the fan up.

  4. And the Silverstone Raven series and new Silverstone Fortress FT02 knock most other cases dead.

    It all depends on what you want from airflow and what you're putting in the case.
  5. It really is a personal choice, but I've always had great luck with Antec 900, 1200, and even 300 cases.

    That's not a real problem. The PSU, with the fan mounted on top, helps keep the drives in the lower bay cool. I have three 900's with either 2 or 3 drives in the lower bay and I have never seen a drive temp higher than 29 C. And that system has two WD 1 TB's and a 640.
