Hi all,

I'm looking for a good ATX case under $100. Preferably, it has a hard drive dock. Also preferably, there is 240mm for a heatsink and fans. I have been considering the Thermaltake Dokker, but idk.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,
Thanks for the reply. I have considered the HAF 922 for around 3 years, but it's I/O ports are minimal, and no hard drive dock. Do you know of any way to change the I/O ports? Thanks in advance

The front panel i/o ports? I don't believe you can change it but what exactly were you looking for?

I believe the haf 922 only has 2 USB ports in the front, only USB 2.0. It doesn't have an esata port either.

The coolermaster haf 922 is probably one the best mid-range cases you can get for under $100.

Some of it's features include:
five 5.25" external drive bays
transparent side panel window
two enormous 200mm fans (one in the front and one on the top) as well as a 120mm rear fan
tool-free installation of drives
Ton's of room to fit the largest video cards (and liquid cooling)

As far as what D4rkr4in said about the minimal I/O ports, I agree. But with two usb 2.0 ports, audio, an e-sata (yes there is one). This is definetly good enough as USB 3.0 still isn't mainstream. Also if you invest in a decent motherboard you can have the usb 3.0 ports that you are looking for. My advice is don't let the front I/O ports be your deciding factor. This case is very spacious, well built, and even looks pretty good.

The HAF 922 is a great case, no doubt, just be aware it has no dust filtration.

I saw the two cases, thanks for the suggestions. But, I don't like the looks of either of them, sorry :(
