All those cases are good for airflow and a couple are better for ease of use.
Looks are subjective and a personal choice.
I personally own a 902 and 690II.
The 902 has some ease of use flaws(filter access) which have been addressed with the DF series.Also you can't use the side fan if you mount a decent tower HSF(160mm).
However i think it looks better then the DF.
The CM690II has better cable management but is a little noisier then the 902 due to all the open fan locations.I also like the CM690II's looks and it's a little roomier.
I know the HAF is a great case but i heard it lacks filters and is alot bigger then the other cases something i didn't want.I don't like it's looks either.
I don't mind the looks of the Scout or the CM Sniper both good cases from what i've heard.
I think the CM 690II offers the best mix of features available on all the other cases.
Good clean looks,filters,great cable management,hot-swap,added window,and some tool-less features.
It doesn't lack anything the other cases have and pulls it off with a classy look.
the CM 692 has the best potential to be good (10 optional fan slots), the HAF 922 (or the case i just linked) has the best on board air flow, the DF is a waste of money IMO, and the 902 is good, however i feel in the time its been out, its been outclassed a little. still a great case, but better has come out, and DF wasnt a worthy replacement.
Compare the PC-P50 (Same as the PC-K62 but aluminum) to the Antec 902, 692 Advanced, and HAF 922 and you will see it hangs with them and beats them in ambient temperature and GPU cooling. As you can see, if anything, the PC-k62 will outperform or hang with all those cases.
Thanks for the suggestions guys. I've decided on Coolermaster for my case but I'm thinking of getting HAF 932 if its worth it. I'l; have to keep this case for a long time so it would be nice to get a good one now. Here are the prices for my chosen cases: (It's Australia so everything is a bit expensive)
CM Storm Scout $127
Has very good cable management and front panel with 4 USB 2.0 ports and stock LED on/off control a little small?
CM HAF 922 $148
Similar to the HAF 932 but smaller and doesn't look as good as the 932
CM HAF 932 $179
The only full tower case at a reasonable price at my nearby store Also good airflow with large fans at lower RPM and ease of use? Not painted and future proof?
CM 690 II Advanced (Window) $139
Blue LEDs and fans, noisy? IMO doesn't look as good as the others
I'm a fan of red lighting and side windows so I guess that influenced my choice a bit. With LED fans, they are not as bright as the ones in the pictures, right, because that would be overkill. What do you guys think?
The HAF series have good airflow but they don't come with any dust filters (might want to consider that if your room gets dusty).. As for future proofing and improved looks and features, you can consider the HAF-X which is available for $199 (its a huge case though).. If you need best of all worlds then consider the CM Storm Sniper Black AMD Dragon Edition..
No I don't mean that. I meant the 922 is overpriced in Australia when compared to Newegg in the US and 932 is just slightly overprice or about the same if you don't factor in the 20 dollar savings on Newegg.
