Which case is the best among all of these? I'm planning on buying a case for a new rig. Cooling and cable management is important. So which one is the best? I'm leaning more on towards the HAF 932 Blue, but I do want my system nice and cool.


XION XON

Antec Nine Hundred

Antec Twelve Hundred

Cooler Master HAF 932 Blue

Cooler Master HAF X

First the full tower cases:

The 932 has been replaces by the HAF-X ... so if it's between those, I'd say HAF-X. See the video here:

The 1200 has been replaced by the DF-85 ... so if it's between those, I'd say DF-85. See the video here:

Between the DF-85 and HAF-X, I like the DF-85. Advantages include inlet air filters, hot swap SSD bay, adjustable fan controls, fits CP series PSU's (cheaper and quieter) and the case has a sturdier feel about it.

Now the mid tower cases:

The Antec 900 had been replaced by the 902 ... but now the DF-30 and DF-35 have supplanted those. The HAF-922 would be Coolermaster's entry in the field. Frankly I like building with all of them.

The XION doesn't belong in the same room with them. If building a hi end box .....

HAF-X w/ XFX Black Edition 850

or

Antex DF-85 w/ CP-850 PSU

HAF-X or spend even more money and get the Silverstone Raven RV02.

I would say the Twelve Hundred or the DF-85 like mentioned above.

I like the DF-85, but what is selling me on the HAF-X is the GPU side fan. Sure, the DF-85 has the ability for one to be mounted, but the HAF-X has some pretty huge fans.

If you're down to just a few options like you are then I find the best thing to do is just read through as many reviews as you can find on each case and go for the one that best suits your particular needs. The thing with high end cases such as the ones you mentioned is that there's actually very little to choose between them. I guess aesthetics come into it since you're going to be looking at it a lot, but I'd read into it as much as you can and go for the one that suits your particular needs.
