Hi everyone,

I'm looking for a good case for under $100. I'd like to get the best case for the money but I don't have the knowledge of what would be best for the current parts I have. I was looking at the CM HAF 912 or HAF 922. If the 912 is all I would ever really need for my build, then that's probably what I would get. I figure I won't need front USB 3.0 ports if I have rear ones from to motherboard.

The current parts I have (not including the DVD drive):

Would the HAF 912 be a great case for this build? Would the parts have breathing room in that case?

EDIT: Any other case suggestions are welcome too, I've just heard a lot of good things about Cooler Master HAF cases.

Thanks.

the 912HAF case would be fine for your system,it has good airflow,i would recommend adding a fan at the top,i found this helped in my cm storm case to reduce temps,if you decide to spend some more money on a case,have a look at the corsair 600T case,also take a look at some reviews of these cases on you tube
