$100 or less (shipped) - NEW CASE! Recommend Me Please!

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
I am using a Thermaltake V9 Black Edition. I liked it for a long time, still do to some extent. However, I am in the mood for a better case.

I like the HAF 932, but not it's price. I like the 912, but can't be sure.

Looking for:

* Don't care about brand, as long as it's not a crap case.
* Can't stand LED's other than power and HDD (hate LED fans)
* Have some fans included in the case (I don't want to purchase a ton of fans extra)
* Would like a raised motherboard tray with cutouts for proper cable management (it's a luxury and I've recently added a lot more stuff that I'd like to route better)

Most people will recommend CM 690 II Adv. I made a similar thread with the same budget a couple months ago and 95% of people told me that case. I bought it and I love it so much.

Is it worth the extra money? I'm coming into some extra cash (450 exact) and decided to order from Newegg or Microcenter to replace my GPU, case and keyboard.

I was either going that one or the Antec but cemented on the 912 because it could fit the 212 perfectly.

What's the wire management on this like? Doesn't seem to have as many cutouts as the HAF-912

If you look closely, you will see that there are wiring slots "hidden" away on the mobo side panel.

Don't buy the Antec. It doesn't have cable management and it is a little outdated. Also, CM 690 II Adv fits Hyper 212+ perfectly, as I have one installed in mine. I strongly recommend the 690 II Adv because it has really great airflow and you are getting the best bang for your buck under $100. Also, check out the CM Storm Scout. It isn't as good as the 690 II Adv but I see it on sale sometimes for very cheap, and it could be worth it if it goes under $75.

I don't know much about the HAF 912 but the CM 690 II Adv has really great cable management. It has more than enough holes to satisfy your needs, and not in a dirty way either!
