Best case for my build

I'm stuck between two cases for the new build I will be making, here are my components:

CPU: Intel i7 2700k or ivy bridge
GPU: EVGA 680
PSU: Corsair ax850
RAM: G.Skill ripjaws X 8gb (2x4) 1600 low voltage
Mobo: Asus p8z68 v-pro gen 3
Water Cooling: XSPC rx360 or extreme version
Optical drive: Asus DRW-24B1ST 24X
SSD: crucial m4 128gb
HDD: Seagate 1tb 7200

I'm thinking of the HAF X: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119239
or the NZXT Switch 810: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146089

Tell me what you think, any other suggestions are welcome and encouraged!

  2. I believe they are aren't compatible with the water cooling I selected.

    It really wouldn't make a difference cooling wise and future-proofing, But I have the HaF 912 Plus and nothing but good things to say about it besides that the fan that came with it broke upon shipping. However if you ever planned to do a full water-cooling system the switch looks like the best route, but both should do just fine since they're both enthusiast grade cases/chassis.

    Yea that's what I was thinking, I would probably be happy with either one. I think the switch looks better but the HAF is built better.

    I don't know my friend got the NZXT ZERO 2 it is all steel he said and he's had no complaints beside it being a real heavy case but he isn't a LAN type of person so it fits him.
