What is the best of these?
-- Cooler Master HAF 912 Advanced? [3999 PHP/$93 USD]
-- Cooler Master CM 690 II Advanced (Clear Side Window)? [3999 PHP/$93 USD]
-- Corsair 300r? [4070 PHP/$94.55 USD)

They have almost the same prices.
I have a maximum of 4000 PHP/$93 USD budget.

Here some of my "requirements":
-- Should have USB 3.0 for my next motherboard.
-- Good airflow for fans.
-- Radeon 6870 should fit.
-- Hyper 212 Evo should fit.

Sorry for many requirements. :)

690 II Advanced, I've owned both the 912 and 690 II Advanced. Now, the 912 is VERY basic, here it's roughly 30-40 cheaper than the 690 ii advanced. I recently switched over to the 690 II and it features much better cable management, better airflow, and overall better case quality. The Hyper 212 Evo fits perfectly in both of those cases, and any current GPU will fit in both cases.

That's one hell of a tough choice.

They look nearly identical when it comes to cable management, the deciding factors really ought to aesthetics between the 2 cases, price and HDD capacities.

Thanks for your opinion. Will look forward to 690 II Advanced. :) 
Any opinions for Corsair 300r? Or, 690 is better?

I liked HAF 912 for its design. (Just the design.)
For 690 II, I think, it's a simple case that has great features. (Based from the above.)

I've got 2 HAF 922s and 1 HAF 912...... really difficult for me to see beyond them as far as other stuff being better is considered.

I think I'll go with CM 690 II Advanced 'cause of it great airflow.
Many fan slots but 140mm max fan size. (Good airflow maybe?)

HAF 912 has great design for gamers but only few fan slots but big fans can fit.

But, any opinions for Corsair 300r?

Many small fans can cause a lot of turbulence inside the rig, it's better to go for a few big fans with enough airflow.
I would not be suggesting the 300R since I really don't get the feel from it.
It's also got only 7 Expansion slots, the plus one vertical slot actually does help a lot when it comes to mounting something else which the other two cases have.
Plus the Side vents for the 300R are, wouldn't you say a little 'just there' and nowhere else, a limiting factor.

Now, only HAF 912 and 690 II remains.

Cooling System of HAF 912:

Front: 200 mm red LED fan x 1, 700RPM,19dBA (Can be swapped for two 120mm fans.)
Top: 200 mm black fan x 1,700RPM,19dBA (Can be swapped for two 120mm fans.)
Rear: 120 mm black fan x 1, 1200 RPM, 17 dBA
Side: 120/140 mm fan x 1 (Optional)



Cooling System of 690 II:

Front: 140 x 25mm blue LED fan x 1 / 1200RPM / 19dBA
Rear: 120mm fan x 1 / 1200 RPM / 17dBA
Top: 140 x 25mm fanx1/1200RPM/19dBA (Supports 120/140mm fan x 2)
Bottom: 120mm fan x 2 (Optional)
Left side: 120/140mm fan x 2 (Optional)
Right side: 80 x 15mm x 1 (Optional)
HDD cage: 120mm fan x 1 (Optional)



I'm still confused. :S

+1 for HAF,but Antec 300 illusion is another great choice.
June 12, 2012 9:17:44 AM

Thanks for your opinion.
But, I'm still confused.

Most of them says that 690 II Advanced is better.

Will wait for other opinions. :)

if 300r is same price than it's also a good choice.
June 12, 2012 11:30:18 AM

By the way, is there a bad effect if there's too many fans installed in the rig?
'Cause, if I'm going to buy (If only.) the 690 II Advanced, I'm going to put all possible fans.

you don't need to fill every fan mount.a fast 120mm in front as intake and second on the top and third on back(both as exhaust) are enough.
June 13, 2012 2:34:26 AM

I see. I might really go for the HAF. :D 
I like designs like that HAF 912.

Thanks a lot for all of your opinions. :) 

Next stop, after buying a case, will ask for my PSU.
Well, it will take a long time. :)
