Hey I need help on these two cases

NZXT Guardian 921

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


Rosewill Challenger-u3

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I just want to know if the NZXT is good and does it provide good cable management. And is there a bid enough difference in usb 3.0 and 2.0 in these cases to choose the Rosewill instead.

Thanks I can't choose between the two

I have LOVED every single NZXT case I've used. And I'm currently lusting over the new Phantom.


As for your other question... yes. USB 3.0 is worth it.
However, your motherboard is going to have 3.0 ports on the back anyways.
(Or won't have 3.0 headers, in which case it's a moot point.)

What motherboard exactly did you get?

The Challenger-U3 only has a front panel connector. If your mobo doesn't have an internal USB 3.0 header, there's no real point on it then.

Seeing as the first choice is out of stock for now, you might want to change something up.

the rosewill challenger won an award for being cheap , and as they pinned the medal on it they wished they could have afforded the Antec 300 in their $50 budget

The antec 300 is now replaced by the 300 two

and Antecs well build budget case is the Antec ONE . Its an excellent case for $55

So is the HAF 912

the antec one can be had for 44.99
