Another Question Haf 932 or CM 690 II adv

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am looking into cases.

I heard problems about restarts from touching the front panel. I am kinda nervous which case to buy... I mean i heard it has to do something with a reset switch. I know i have everything plugged in right

i personally think the Haf is ugly as hell.

I just looked at the CM 690 at the store today and i have to say it looks really nice...
As long as its set up right it wont restart by toucing the front.

Yea i read in another place that it has to do with it tripping the front pannel reset switch

I bought a HAF 932 BE (Black Edition) last month, to replace my 690II Advanced.
The 690II was, and is, a nice case, but as I recently acquired a second 480 to run in SLI with the first one, I had to get a bigger case. This was due to the triple-slot coolers I had on both 480's. The 932 has an optional top-mount ps spot, which gave me enough clearance for the 480's and their custom coolers:

Aside from the huge space increase, the 932 is a much sturdier case than the 690II, which is made from thinner-gauge steel than the 932. More fan options, room for water-cooling, etc.

As for your original question, the HAF 932 would be ideal as it has the room for two cards and great airflow for your setup.

By the way, I have no issues with the front panel. If you ever did have any problems, CM would send you the replacement part to fix it. But this problem has been fixed for quite a while now.
