[Advice] Buying Full tower

Hello guys.

I've recently upgraded some components of my computer and now I'm looking forward for another case, as mine doesn't seem to be handling AMD and all it's demand for cooling pretty well ^.^. I'm leaving Intel behind and going with AMD (the price is much more fair, I think).


AMD FX-8120 Bulldozer
Asus CH Formula V
2x4GB Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz
HD6870 (I'll have another one for Crossfire in some months)
2xHDD Samsung
Corsair GS800


I'm willing to pay for about 250$ for a new case and I don't want to make the wrong choise. Diging through I found Aerocool Strike-X and although it isn't a Full Tower case, I liked the design and the reviews look fine.

Which case will you recommend me?

  1. HAF X
  2. CM HAF X 942, built to last.
  3. Yeah, I saw some reviews on HAF. I'm just afraid they are too big for my settings and also afraid of Strike-X being too small. lol

    Is my Power Supply going to fit in HAF 942?
  4. Just get a mid tower 922. It seems to be the one you want.
  5. chaser MK-I looks sexy IMO.932 is one of the best.

    Isn't 922 going to be too small for a Crossfire? Aren't components going to be too tight and close to each other? I actually face this problem with my case. :/

    Not really, A 922 should be near the size of a FULL tower. It's not too big and not too small.
  8. Humm. Yeah. I've just seen some videos on this tower and looks sweet. Guess it's going to solve my problem. Also it doesn't seem to be very expensive. :)

    Thanks for the tips, guys. Really appreciate that.

    I have the Raven 03... it's AWESOME... but kinda a pain to setup initially if you choose to put all 7 additional fans it can take into it... the drive bay fans in particular tend to be a pain in the ass... luckily I have some solid noctuas in there so when i upgrade the system I will be leaving the fans as they are... also I live in the desert of Arizona... and the entire front of the case has dust filters and the bottom dust filters are held on with magnets so they can be easily removed and put back on without even moving the system... it really is a great case after initial setup... moving the new system into will be a breeze i just know it.
