Hi , i'm juan
I'm planning on building my first gaming pc as a project for myself. I played a little unreal tournament when i was little and the experience was awesome but i had a crap computer so i had to play on super low settings.
I'm excited to get a good gaming rig and join the pc community instead of buying the next gen consoles. Anywyas i want to know which CASE is better for this build and i'm think about the future too, i want all my pieces to fit incase i decide to upgrade next year or something. I've been looking at these 3 cases :Cooler Master storm, haff 912 or 922. All help is appreciated and i just want something that will do and will be future ready. Thanks.!

More about what case build
  1. Best answer
    They will all work, but I would grab the HAF 912. This is because I've owned the 912 and I own a Scout as well. The Scout offers barely any cable management, but the 912 gives great cable management and has great airflow.


    I would also change the board to an asrock z68 extreme 3 gen 3
  2. Thanks for the info, could you give me a comparison? Wth this build i'm going for high settings comfortably maybe some games on ultra , but just if the graphics are good on high on the most demanding games i'll be happy.
  3. 912 will be the best option.
  4. Will the 912 have enough room incase i want to upgrade in the near future say a year? I heard some motherboards have a hard time fitting into the 912.
  5. It's a pretty big case for upgrades :)
  6. Awesome thanks man. Just found this site, i will comming here from now on to ask. Quick answers. :bounce:

  8. I would upgrade the ulta PSU. Go to Realhardtechx,com for a data base for PSU.

    Ok thanks, i forgot to include that i would be getting a Corsair Hydro H60 too.
  10. Please also note that we have a new board HAF XM if it may fit in your budget.
