i would like opinions on which case i should get, the cooler master haf x, or the nzxt switch 810. i liker both of them alot and the switch is cheaper. whichever one i get i will fill them up with fans as much as i can put in em.
note: i will not be water cooling only air.

HAF X in my opinion is better than the NZXT switch. As far as 140mm fans, these are really good and quet, move lots of air as well: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Also, a full tower case is a little overkill judging by what your sig describes... I use a mid tower and fit 2 water cooled GPUs as well as watercooling for the CPU. But do whatever, you may like the exterior so whatever makes you happy.

orange dosent go with either case. i just want the highest airflow, i dont care about quietness cuz im gonna have some logitech g930 headphones for sound reduction. i was thinking about these fans since they move alot of air and will go great with my build.

and yes i do know theyre out of stock. thats ok since i wont buy this pc til kepler comes out and if theyre still out of stock ill get them from somewhere else.

Get the Switch. CM is a dishonest company. In competent technical reviews, HardwareSecrets found that some of their PSUs still have liar-labels on them, or claim to have protection circuits that are actually missing. For that dishonesty, IMHO, CM does not deserve anyone's business, for any of their products. Some of the Rosewill gaming cases also mount a lot of fans, and may come with 3-5 fans already. They may have additional features you may like, such as a top SATA dock for a 3.5" or 2.5" hard drive (such as one under test, or to be formatted for use somewhere else).

Edit: For high airflow, check out these, even though they're "only" 120mm: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... but be advised they are 38mm thick, rather than the more usual 25mm.
