IMHO, HAF 932 is a 'better' case than HAF X for your purpose because:-

1. its side panel supports a wider combination of fans, both number wise and position wise.
One can fit four 120mm fans to the side panel of the 932. In my opinion, the top 2 positions are well positioned to supply fresh ambient air to the CPU heatsink-fan. The lower 2 positions are better suited to take care of the graphics cards. See the pic below.

2. a few good features of the HAF X cannot be used effectively with internal exhaust type of cards (eg the VGA Dock which only works well with 'front centrifugal fan intake + rear exhaust' type of graphics cards).
And this reduces its cost-to-performance ratio, indirectly making the 932's CP ratio higher.

Well guys had the case over a week now. Got to say it's massive. Had to diy my desk to fit it under lol.

It's keeping everything cool. Not sure lot of noise comming from the fans and case. I am very impressed.
I always thought expensive case were a waste of money. Not now tho.
