Both are good cases, the Mk might be better due to the 932 having to use a 5.25" adapter plate to add usb3 ports.

HAF 932 for days, man. It's a monster if you plan to watercool.

Given the choices I'd go with the HAF 932 , as for the cooler ... either the 80 or 100i although there are potentially better things on the horizon eg. the swiftech h-220 ..........THIS

dunno. swiftech 220 is good, but not that much better than than 80i or 100i.

also its 320$. versus 100$

kind of big price difference.

$139.00 actually ... The promo shows it with better cooling performance , lower dba and better reliability at 60,000 hours . Its expandable and the pump is much stronger @ 6 watts rather than the 1.2 watts of the other offerings . To that I must admit that the performance will be determined at release .. late feb ..

Definitely choose the HAF. I've got the 932 Black Edition with a WC loop for the cpu and vga, along with a dual bay res, and it's got nice room to expand in addition to what I already have. I can also tell you the the high air flow (HAF) really does work well in this case, which is more important if you don't water cool.

mux-120. tuniq xtreme 120. all good coolers just as good as the swiftech. dont forget there using air to cool unlike a custom water cooling system

The noctua is hands down the best air cooler on the market . The 212 evo is likely the best value , the h-220 I'm expecting will be the best AIO cooler for the short term anyways but if ya want a custom loop at a good price the Raystorm rx 240 is hard to beat ... if ya have two 5.25 bays available for the res ... IMHO
