HAF 912, Corsair 300R, or 400R

I need a case with nice airflow and cable management for under $100. My mobo is 12" x 8.6" and I'd want to reuse the case again if I ever build a new comp.

I was debating three cases already.

HAF 912 for $65

Corsair 300R for $80

Corsair 400R for $93

The 912 seems good, but doesn't look that nice. Both the Corsair cases are nice looking and have good features, but cost more.

More about corsair 300r 400r
  1. What about this CM 692A http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119259 $80 after MIR and free shipping.
  2. Thanks but no thanks. It looks nice but I don't know, I just don't like the look of it really. Can anyone tell me if the three cases I listed above would suit my needs.
  3. The 400R is the better of the Corsair's. They will all work with your std ATX board and provide sufficient cooling for a gaming rig!
  4. Is the 400R worth the extra $13? I mean the only difference I see is that the 300 has some dust filters on the front (Doesnt say if the 400 has any)

    Thanks
  5. It is bigger more fans and possibility to add more and so on http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007583%2050001459&IsNodeId=1&bop=And&CompareItemList=7%7C11-139-008%5E11-139-008-TS%2C11-139-011%5E11-139-011-TS
    But really it is a question for you if you want to spend more money on it, it will not have any performance advantage over the other two.
  6. i have the 400R. i like the case and it's easy to build in especially with the side panels that flare out. compared to the 300R, the 400R has a larger HDD cage, one more fan, and rubber grommets. the lack of one fan could be a good thing since I personally don't care for the corsair fans. they are loud and I replaced all my fans with scythe & enermax tb silence fans.

    all the cases you selected are solid, make sure you get one with looks that appeal to you since you will be staring at it for a while.
  7. What about the NZXT Tempest 410:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146081

    It has great cable managment, room for improvement, but the design is a little bit gamer.

    Another case NZXT Phantom 410
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146093
    This case has a removable HDD cage, different colours, and it looks great.
