HAF 922 VS Lancool PC-K62

Hello.
Im making a new computer with these components:
i7 920
DFI T3H6 mATX
2*GTX 460 768Mb Gigabyte OC (SLI)
Patriot Viper 3x2GB 1600 (8-8-8-24)
Samsung Spinpoint F3 1 Tb (HD103SJ)
Corsair TX650

And I only have to buy the case to complete it. After reading a lot of reviews, there are two cases which I like the most:
CM HAF 922: http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=6606
Lian Li Lancool PC-K62: http://www.lancoolpc.com/en/product/product06.php?pr_in...

As money difference is small, both cases offer drive bays enough, silence or not isn't a problem and I'm not going for a water cooling solution, I will probably choose the case with lowest temperatures. I think both cases are good, but as I haven't seen them compared in the same review, I don't know which of them has better airflow.
Can you help me to decide? Thank you.

I actually have the k62, and i prefer it to the 922. The clean lines are much more visually pleasing to me, and its too-less assembly is far superior.

I would go for it above the 922, but the HAF x would also be an excellent choice (but is much larger).

It really comes down to visuals though, since both are top performers. you should really go for the one you prefer the look of (you'll be looking at it every day).

Ok, thank you for response, but, if I choose K62, may I have any trouble using my 160-170mm CPU heatsink? (On 1366 platform)
Thank you.

try and go for SLI 1gb gtx 460s , there is a significant performance increase, why are you going for an i7 920 when the i7 930 is out at the same price? where are you buying from if you have access to microcenter you can get an i7 930 for $199, i would choose the Lian Li, i dont know if its just me but i think the front of the haf feels cheap, i chose a coolermaster storm scout, but if i had access to lian li cases i would of got 1, they are magnificent, the build quality is just amazing, what specific heatsink are you looking at? a friend of mine has the same lian li case that you are looking at and he has a noctua NH-D14 cpu cooler which is huge i must say and it fits in just fine

Hello, I bought 2* 768Mb because I found a really good offer and could get both for only a bit more than 1*1Gb cost.
I live in Spain. Here, 930 is a bit overpriced for the performance difference with 920, 260€(360$) vs 210€ (290$)
About heatsink, I've bought a Scythe Ninja 3 ( http://www.scythe-usa.com/product/cpu/053/scnj3000-deta... ) which is as tall as Noctua (160mm I've just seen) so it should fit fine.
Thank you. At this moment, Lancool 2 Haf 0

+1 for the Lancool. I have one myself and the toolless design is absolutely amazing.

Both of the cases are excellent, go with whatever one you prefer the visuals of.
The Lancool has slightly less airflow than the 922, not really a problem however.
The 922 doesn't have dust filters on the fans, the k62 does.
K62 also has a nice tool-free design.
You have to decide what case you'd rather look at.

You shouldn't have any trouble with that heatsink. i used a Tuniq tower 120 and had plenty of room to spare.
