The HAF-X outperforms the Phantom in terms of cooling, and the Trooper outperforms the HAF-X. I would grab the Trooper, because it offers better cable management, more features, and better airflow.

get the trooper its my favorite case ATM and i really wish i bought it rather than the CM storm enforcer, the trooper is filled with loads of nice features too, and the is a whit one being released soon called the CM storm stryker, that has a window, although if you get the trooper you can buy a windows panel for it.

on pccasegear.com.au there is a window version. its the one im getting. but i think that the HAF X is pretty cool aswell. what are the disadvantages of trooper compared to the haf x? are there any? i heard someone said water cooling is better on the haf.

IMO I would wait a little, they've got the Stryker arriving soon.

It's a white trooper with a side panel! :na: 




Non-window version=same to trooper

That is what I was told by Tim at CM Storm. Said the Stryker case will be released on June 19th and that I could pick one up anytime after that date. I hope I can get one online on the 19th or 20th.
Hey CM Storm, can you tell us if you went with Matte White or Gloss White? I hope it's Matte. Gloss just would be too shiny for a white case.
