Alright, I'm thinking either the HAF 932 or the HAF X. However, that NZXT Phantom is just downright sexy in my opinion!! (not that the others aren't)

Have to say, I'm loving my Hurrican. Go read some reviews on it, as the only things that seem to get it less recommendations around here is that it's not the HAF X, and that people don't like the "looks".
I'm sure the HAF is a great case, but EVERYONE and their brother seems to have one. I wanted something a little more obscure, and the reviews I have read all say it's a worthy competitor to the HAF X, in build quality, cable management, features, and cooling.
It's also cheaper.
Get what you feel you want, but I really suggest you take a chance on the Hurrican. It's an awesome case.

If you're not watercooling, than I would say go with a Raven RV02, otherwise the Corsair 600T white edition is a good looking case.

Thanks for that, I really like the edition that has a red interior. Plus, it doesn't cost an extra $100+

Keep in mind that the HAF 932 is still in production, and is less expensive than the HAF X. It can have the psu mounted on the top or bottom, and has a different selection of side panels than the HAF X.
The HAF X has nine pci slots, as opposed to the 932's seven slots.
Have a look at the Coolermaster site, or google some reviews on both cases.
Check the price difference at your favorite retailers.
See which you like better, you may prefer the newer HAF X over the HAF 932.
Or not.

Well, I have no interest in going 4-way SLI with the HAF X, I just wanted a big case; the AZZA Hurrican and the NZXT Phantom are only $150, and have room for anything I need/want. All I really wanted was a comparison between these selections, and I think I'll probably go with the Phantom or the HAF series.

Lancool cases are sweet, also there appears to be a successor to the mighty Coolermaster Cosmos just around the corner...Also the new mid-range cases from Corsair look brilliant and well priced to boot.

Look at the NZXT forums and bask in the sheer weight of people rma'ing case fans, fan controllers etc - it sure is ugly, there's still people here posting about HAF X issues such as frying motherboards, shorting, not being able to use the reset switch etc, not many people like to talk about these issues but they are genuine if you poke around here/google.

Even the marvellous Raven 02 Evo has had a fair number of complaints here lately due to the poor build quality of the fans in *some* recent batches and mysterious oil oozing from the bottom fans - again do your research thoroughly.

Although a fan of Silverstone and Coolermaster, having great experience with their cases, and god awful experiences with an old Lian-Li case which led me never to touch an aluminium case ever again, with the Lancool I have just bought, the quality blew me away,and I am one FUSSY customer : )

Whatever you choose, I hope you enjoy it, and remember you look at the screen, not the case so who cares what it looks like, ALL cases are fugly!
