Help me decide (full tower case)

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I'm having a real hard time deciding what case to get. My options so far are the phantom and haf 932.

I love the way the white phantom looks (some might disagree I know) and I was about to pull the trigger until I read that a h50 won't fit with the side fan. And I don't want to do any mods to my case.

The haf 932 is nice also. Looks ok.. But no dust filters!!! And I have a dusty room unfortunately.

Please, if there are better options let me know. I would prefer a full tower case with good air flow with great cable management and hopefully under $200

Corsair Obsidian 800D? That's one of the Full Towers that I would buy if I was looking to buy.

The cases that I would buy, personally are these:
- Corsair Obsidian 800D (Not the best in terms of airflow, but great for watercooling.)
- NZXT Phantom (Black or White, doesn't really matter. Just not red.)
- Antec 1200 (Most people hate this line of cases cos of their terribad cable management stuff)

Those are the cases I'd choose.

The 800d is outta my price range. And I've read it has terrible air flow

How about a Silverstone Raven? They have awesome air flow, and I think you can get them for ~$150.

I have read most of the pages on the phantom club thread and from what I read was, the h50 will fit without the side fan. And with the side on you would have to mount the rad somewhere else. But i kinda don't wanna do that cuz the air flow will decrease.

That pic on the first page is referring to the top fan, I'm talking about the side panel fan.
