    I would say equal in cooling although the DF comes with more fans. The doors are made of plastic, borrowed from a newegg review "The goofy plastic doors are difficult to open, they are pointless and the plastic clips are almost broken after using them 1 or 2 times. Ridiculous design covering the drive bays." It is just hard to make some people Happy!
  2. Antec DF series stole the crown from the HAF series of being the most ugly case(s) IMO.. Anyway, sticking to the query, Rolli has explained everything pretty nicely.. So if those two are your only options, then you are safe to pick the one which looks best to you..
  3. oh and what about graphics cards fitting? would i be able to crossfire in the antec 1200 and the df-85? using xfx 5850?

    From specs DF85 "Maximum graphics card size: 12.5" / 318 m"

    You already got the answer for that regarding the 1200 in your previously posted query i guess.. As with the DF-85, the answer is the same i.e. yes..
  7. a case that would hold.
    Asus Crosshair formula iv
    corsair 850hx
    xfx 5850 crossfire
    1 ssd ocz vertex 2 60gb
    2 HDD 2.5 or 3.5
    3rd party cpu cooler
    and matches the motherboard theme (red) optional =p
  8. You again.! Anyway, hopefully your great case confusion ends with this thread.. There are quite a few cases with a red theme.. For example, Lancool PC-K62, Silverstone FT02-R, HAF 932 red etc.. What is your budget.?

    As for the lanboy air series from Antec, then personally i don't find them much interesting.. They do a good job with cooling though.. So if you like them and can afford one, nobody is gonna stop you..
