Yes I keep thinking about the Define XL but I've read some reviews about the air flow not been so great in that case.

+1 for the haf 932, beauty looking case, top and front 200mm fans keep things cool and quiet also.

So far it looks like it unless someone can point at another case that will catch my attention.

I said the HAF 932, but he doesn't like the front, for me is the best choice

Go with a CM Scout or Sniper, both have excellent air cooling and fairly respectable cable management.

They aren't built cheap either, they are built with very solid materials and are rather professional.

They also look very aggressive and have a style to them that not many other cases can carry without looking tacky.

Also, if you get the scout, you get the awesome handle that (in my personal experience) helps A ton for just about any time you need to move your case...

If you're looking to water cool, it's gonna be a little tight, but it's very workable, and aesthetically will look very sleek and organized (provided you cable manage correctly).

They also come cheaper than some other cases, but once again, I must reiterate, they do not fail on quality despite the lower cost.

All in all, I would highly recommend the Scout/Sniper for not only its cheap price tag, but its build quality, and its overall practicality and aesthetic.


Hope that helped,

If you're getting the HAF 932, beware of dust build up. All the airflow is great but it's a dust vacuum. So have some compressed air ready once in a while.
