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.

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.

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!

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

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.
