Hi guys !

I will be getting a computer in about a month or two and i have already figured out everything that i need except the case , i will be using it for gaming. I was thinking of either the corsair 500r or the haf 912 advance .

From what i know the 500r comes with a 3speed fan controller , a led switch and 3 x 120mm fan and a 200mm fan while the Haf 912 advance comes with a 200mm fan and a 120 at the back . The 500r do come with more stuff but isit worth the extra cash ? And which case do you think is generally better ? Or should i go with a cheaper case like a corsair 300r ?

Thanks !

the antec 302 would be sufficent in most uses (49.99 at us.ncix.com)

the 500R is great but if you are on a budget, the antec 302 would be a great choice

Im not really on a budget , the max i can spend on a case would be the price of the corsair 500r , i am just not sure which would be better for the price m the 500r or the haf 912 .

The 500r is good as well as the Haf 912 advance so i would go with which ever you like best imo the 500r is overpriced but some disagree to each their own.

why do you say that the 500r is overprice ? the r4 seems okay but it looks like alittle too wide to me .

I guess because for $20 more you could get much bigger case and i don't like the - Flexing on HDD trays.It feels cheaply built in some areas makes me think they try to cut corners other than that i think it's a top notch case + Good thermal performance + Good cable management options + 4 cooling fans pre-installed + Fan control and LED switch
:D

i personally like the flexing drive cages. only harp is that installing ssds were a total pain since they would bend inward a little when you screw them in, making my screws a bit off to the right or the left.

for hard drives, it would take you 20 secs to secure them in
