After weeks of work, it has come down to these 2 cases. People told me both of them offer almost the same quality of performance. It just comes down to aesthetics. What do you think I should go with? If you have another suggest, please suggest me it. I really love a side window panel, which the Lian Li k62 has, but the HAF 922 has a mesh window. Anyone with a HAF 922, I ask you. Are you able to see your parts clearly through the HAF 922's mesh window? Also I love the HAF 922's front aesthetic design. Which one should I go with? I plan on using this case for the next 4-5 years, so this is an important decision for me. Thanks.

I like the HAF 922.Side panels are cool if you can light them up with proper colored fans.Make sure to get matching colors for your hardware and fans.

I also find SLI or CF makes your side panel look way cooler.

Anyone have any other thoughts? I never found a k62 owner. Every HAF 922 owner I found said they love their HAF 922.

I have the 922. i love it because of the high airfow and use of that mess window. I dont use the window to see inside because i mounted a CM 200mm fan on that side window which dramatically dropped my case temps like 3c and keeps my 955 roughly 3-5 c cooler(h60 push/pull) so it all comes down to what you want. Good air flow or nice looking?

airflow isnt a problem with both cases. Nice looking is a priority with silence.

Any k62 owners?

If I get the HAF 922 and put a red cathode in there, can I see my parts perfectly through the mesh window?

unfortunately not really. even without my fan there i cant really see any of my parts too clearly. I like the closed pc look though. it all dpends on what you like . in ur case then get the open side view.

If I can get a 200mm fan that costs 20 dollars, to close up that mesh window, I would like it, but idk.

Since the front part of this case is mesh, if i put red cathodes in there, would I be able to see like a really red glow in the whole front of the case?

It's sorta hard to choose. the k62 has a nice side view, but the haf 922 has a nice front view. I wish I had money for the k63, maybe it might drop in price, but idk.

are you plannig to keep this build? if no or not for long then go with the more budget choice. If you wanna keep it then put that extra in and get the case you like best. I chose my 922 because its large enough to fit components and good airflow. thats what my deicision was based on. The front red isn't bring at all, but the custom side panel 200m fan i got is a bit bright. I would of rather gone with a 200m or 2 120m fans that are just black and make the case a really nice black finish.

well if you plan to keep it then spend the extra $. might hurt the pocket now but later down the road your gunna compain that you wanted certain features, or sometihng u realy liked but didn't bother the extra. So just spend the extra and get ur favorite case.

I wish, but my mind tells me to spend as much as money on the gpu, while sticking to a minimum budget for a case, but something that i won't be unhappy with.

I REALLY WISH I could have the corsair obsidian, but it's too costly. If I can't have that I REALLY wish for a beautiful corsair 600t case. If I want to go full tower, HAF 932 or HAFX or nzxt phantom is my first priority. I am hoping I can maybe go for the nzxt phantom. I really love these pc cases.
