Wanted to get your guys opinion on what i should do here.
So i was looking to get a new case so that it can accomadate my afteermarket heatsink.The heatsink is around 7"in depth so right now i can barely close the doors with it inside.I am intrested in the HAF 922 case.It is $90 at FRYs and $100 at newegg.Just recently they put a disocunt and freeshipping on the HAF 922 at newegg.That is very intresting to me but their is also another place called Geeks.com.I have never used this place before so i am doubtful of their creditability.But they have very good prices on a HAF 932 and a Cooler Master Storm Sniper.They are both refirbused but that doesn't bother me.So i was wonderig if you guys had any opinons or ideas on what i should get.And if geeks.com is a credibatle buyer.
Thankyou
HAF 922 @frys.com $90+$10Shipping

HAF 922 @ newegg.com $90+Free shipping
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

HAF 932 @geek.com(refurbished) $85+$20 Shipping
http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?invtid=RC-932-KKN1-GP-...

CoolerMaster Storm Sniper(refurbished) $85+$20Shipping
http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?invtid=SGC-6000-KXN1-G...

I am really leaning twards the Storm Sniper because it has the same width as the HAF 922 and that is most important to me.And the Storm Sniper comes with the extra 200mm fan.Any opinons or ideas would be much appreciated.

Well if it was me buying I would go with the 922 from Newegg. (I do not like refurbished Items)

Well i have no problems with rufurbised or used or open box's because my computer is an open box and it's been running fine for over 6+months.It's just the credability of that company that worries me.Do you think they replaced the fans?

@beanoslim i have looked everywhere for cases within the price range and with current matches and i have narrowed it down to those three.The Antec case is really good but i'm looking for something with a side fan too.Preferably a large 200mm+ fan.Also the width on those cases are and inch shorter.My heatsink is 7" plus the fan side that will be their so it adds up.

Can't you contact them and ask for specific details, usually if they supply more details they are ok.
If they fob you off with lame excuses then I'd give it a miss.

HAF932 for me, I like the blue one on Newegg but its $159.99, the HAF-X is only $179 with free postage.

Most of the complaints about geeks are about delayed shipping and discrepancies in customer support. Issues I have never encountered at Newegg.

Also raise's suspision because everything on their website wether it is New or Refurbished everything is at insanely low prices.

Their were no complaints about misplacing products or defetaive products?How is their return policy?

I've known newegg for misplacing orders but they are very good about everything.I do trust newegg but this site(Geeks.com) is really tempting.

I haven't seen it anywhere but do they make the HAF 922 in blue?
I already have 4 120mm Blue case fans, thought it would look better.Or else my computer will look like a cop car.

I have built with the 922 and 932 .... I still build with the 922 but not the 932. When asked to build a 932 based system, I oft recommend the DF-85. My 2nd choice is the HAF-X in the full tower arena. In the mid tower, it's the 922 or the DF-35 I recommend most.

The DF-85 w/ CP-850 PSU is tough combo to match at $260 here in the US (newegg). My usual 2nd choice pairing, HAF-X w/ Corsair HX850 choice has less features and costs $70 more.

Quote:

Here's the optional side fan that mounts in the DF-85 side panel. Adding that gives the case a total of 8.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Things I like about the DF:

- Washable inlet air filters
-"Fleet Release" Access Doors which let you remove those fans in a second (removing / replacing filters in 1200 took about 8 minutes)
-Top 2.5" hot-swap external SATA (SSD-compatible) drive bay
-Internal "Fleet Swap" drive bays (remove / replace HD's / SSD's without plugging / unplugging cables
-Fits 12.5" GFX cards
-Built in speed controls for all fans
-3 + 1 x USB3.0
-Great cable management
-CPX form factor support for PSU's

Thanks guys for all your input.
I went ahead and got a HAF 922.
I was on newegg for $100 then they put a $10 promo code and free shipping.It was kinda hard to pass up.
Rather get something that i know will work than something else.

No they would have to score close to 95% for me to trust them http://www.resellerratings.com/store/Computer_Geeks_1
Here is Newegg for comparison http://www.resellerratings.com/store/Newegg



Geeks.com has been in biz for over 15 years and have some of the best pricing found anywhere.

If you are concerned about their policies, products, or how the business is run ask ask anyone over here if they can be "trusted":

http://www.facebook.com/ComputerGeeks

Not really sure what implication of the word "trusted" you are referring to?

If you purchase a product will your receive it?

Will the product arrive at your door?

Will they take your CC # and go on a Vegas spending spree? lol

Again, 15+ years in the biz is not a easy feat and certainly much more difficult, if not impossible if said company was not 100% legitimate and looking out for the best interest of their very loyal brand enthusiasts!

If find this conversation somewhat amusing.

Happy Shopping!!

Fair Enough -- I am not a huge fan of review site in general. YELP / Google Reviews / Reseller Ect....

I find that their are more efforts by competitors trying to skew results and rarely ok (never) are these platforms free from shills.

Some of the best place in the world to eat, shop, visit, stay, ect...have less the stellar ratings or remarks.

I base my own opinions on my experiences and not someone else's, which often include alternative motives unknown to me!

When you have been burned ones you get more careful and it is hard to compare the world wide web to actual physical places.
