  1. your links dont work

    and names would be helpful

    and then just buy a Silverstone TJ 08e anyway
  2. re updtated links
  3. Get the HAF 912, it a good case with good cooling/airflow, and it's at 39.99$ after mir.
    There's also a good alternative, like the Corsair 200R : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811139018
  4. isnt the rosewill one good and how is the corsairs? i need more fans inside x;
  5. The HAF 912 is superior.
    The corsair for a budget solid case.
  6. it has like 3 fans tho shud i order more for HAF?
  7. why use a mid tower when you have an m-ATX motherboard?
  8. well i have matx atm and it gets really hot lot of ppl told me to get mid tower
  9. b/c lot of ppl recommended me to gwt mid tower b/c i recently got new cpu mobo ram and it runs hotter than my old 5 year old cpu and my gpu is high idle temp as well heres the pic

  10. The size of your case wont make any difference to cooling , but a bad case is a bad case . Your pic shows small fans and a not much room
    What are your temps?

    The HAF is a good case and it will work well

    But if you want to stay with a smaller case then the TJ 08e will cool as well as any
  11. The HAF 912 supports matx, it's a good case, you'll have good airflow and space.
    And what's best you'll have a case for future builds, that case is very solid.

    okay thanks it dosen't matter if it have like 3 fans like the rosewill link i put up right? im geussing everyone is saying get the HAF one even tho it has 1 or 2 fans its better?
  14. the Haf 912 has more room to fit stuff in, the Challenger will probably run cooler at stock, stuff.

    In my opinion, if you plan on having alot of internal drives, pick the challenger
    Cooling at stock, Challenger
    Size advantage - haf 912
    Modability - haf 912(ive seen some decent mods with the case)

    if you have one drive, I would recommend the HAF then. You dont need the 120mm fan, the difference between ambient temperatures in the case will be at the most a few degrees off on a bad day. Purchase one when you think you need one.

    edit: i just remembered, the 912 has more drive bays, i forgot the middle section was removable.
  17. thanks alot i will order the haf 912
