I second the 932 - but then again, I'm biased since I have it too.

But basically, 932 for anything cooling related, Phantom for showing off to your non computer friends.

Ah yes, the cleaning problem. I know what you're talking about. I lived in Sri Lanka (Colombo) for a couple years (7 years ago) and I remember back then the crap that I would find inside my dad's computer. I was about 10-11 back then.

Even here in Canada, the dust problem is quite bad. The dryness doesn't help the dust either.

That being said though, the 932 is really a great case to open up and clean. The amount of room in it makes it ideal for cleaning just about anything without having to take apart every little thing.

The phantom is much harder to clean in that respect. all those closed shiny spaces don't do much for it in terms of ease of cleaning.

If you're really worried, just get a bunch of dust filters for the 932 - or build one yourself. Get a couple pairs of black pantyhose and stretch it around the fans. It'll keep out most (90%) of the dust and its really easy to clean.

Maybe you can also consider the HAF X
It has dust filters incorporated and has great cooling.

^^ This

I completely forgot about the HAF X. But it does cost a fair bit more than a 932.

phantom gets mine it I just find the half 932 ugly and it doesn't even have a black interior on a black case it also doesn't have dust filters and the phantom cools the gpu very well if you use a 200mm side fan though you need to look first which fan and which cpu cooler as it really limits the size of the cooler. I like the fan controller it has.
I can only tell about the half 932 from specs and pictures and I a phantom so I can't really objectively compare the to. even if people don't want to they will in there minds defend their purchase.
