Actually I've been getting increasingly annoyed with my 1200 regarding the fan screens. It's UNBELIEVABLY annoying to have to unscrew all 24 screws holding in the drive bays every time i want to clean out the fan screens.

Yes, that's an odd design shared with the 900 and 902 cases.
Having a HAF 932, that's what I would recommend, although a HAF X is certainly a nice case as well.
As an example, here's a brief review of my HAF 932 BE:
http://www.techreaction.net/2010/07/...black-edition/
No side fans in that one though, but the regular 932 has provision for a 230mm or up to four 120mm fans in the side panel.

If you do narrow it down to the 932 or HAF X, have a look at some reviews of both, and the different variations of each, to see which case appeals to you the most. And check the prices at your store(s) of choice.

Am i right in thinking the HAF-X has room for two 200mm fans on top?

So far i'm leaning towards the HAF-X. It's got one of the quietest setups although the phantom is about 30% lighter.
