I'm planning a new system and cannot decide between three cases -

Antec Twelve Hundred

COOLER MASTER HAF 932

Thermaltake Element V


All cost about the same, and offer great cooling systems. All three are very famous brands. Which one would you recommend? And why?

Even tho i like the looks of the Antec better i would go with the CM-932, I believe that big side fan would do grate for a xfire/sli setup.

+ the 932 has a cut out for the HSF, rotated HDD cages, tool less design to name a few

I am not planning СF or SLI - just one ATI 5870. But still, I agree, the side fan would do great cooling the video card.

If you are only getting one 5870, why such an overkill of a case?
Have you considered the haf922? Same features at a better price.

No, I would like a full-tower case. Though I am planning only one GPU for now, I might add one later (although only one 5870 is extremely fast). I also need some room to add different devices... So, I would like a full-tower
