Hi!
I'm going to make an upgrade soon and i was wondering if i'll be able to cool the configuration with a mid tower case, like the CM Storm Enforcer. These are the components i'm planning on buying:

CPU: 2500k or the upcoming 3570K /depends on the price after IB arrives/
MB: Asus or Asrock Z68 motherboard /Z68 EXTREME3 GEN3, P8Z68-V, something like that/
RAM: 8 GB, haven't decided on the brand/model /depends on the MB and CPU/
VGA: my current one for a while - 5770, at least until i get a new one
PSU: my current one - Seasonic S12 II Bronze SS-520GB
HDD: my current one - WD Caviar black, 500 GB

At first, i don't plan on overclocking /no point in that, i'm not an enthusiast/, but after some time when the processor starts to lose performance in the newest software products /graphic rendering, games, etc./ - then i'll probably think about it and maybe do it. So - you've got to have that in mind when giving your opinion.
I just want to know if the CM Storm Enforcer is going to handle the cooling of this system /on air/ or i should put up some more money and get a Haf 922, for instance.

Thanks!

Haf 922, Corsair 400R, 500R, Or Cooler master Storm trooper :)

Why not the CM Storm Enforcer? It's not a good case? I see in your signature you have the Haf 912 which is sort of similar :)  Could you explain a bit.
Thanks for your opinion!

Just saying there are better cases out there, you want a variety to decide from before buying a case.

corsair 600t, by far my favourite case so far, cable management, cooling, looks all in the top 5. Very good all round case.

The Phantom is nowhere to be found in my country :(  I've tried all the official resellers, but have had no luck.

Too much money. I'm looking for something in the price range "CM Storm Enforce - Haf 922".

Any opinions of CM Storm Enforcer owners? I'm not quick about ruling it out, it looks very good.
