antec 900 vs haf 932

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Hi, i currently have the gigabyte aurora 570, but my gpu and pci slots area get REALLY hot, and since i cant add any more fans than the 3 that the case comes with, im thinking about switching it. antec 900 and haf 932 are both at the same price for me, and i dont know wich one to pick.
im looking for something that will run cool and quiet at the same time,
and that will worth the upgrade from my aurora.

932. Had the Antec 900 and I didn't like it. Bad cable management, bad general design (HD bays for example), fans were either loud or pushed very little air, depending on the setting.

By far the HAF 932, it's got:

-More airflow (these 200mm fans are 110 CFM)
-Good cable management
-Tons of room
-Dual PSU support (who cares though ^^)

Also, DirectCanada is got it for only 119,69$ with free shipping (black edition also which is even better, side window + black interior)

Good purchase

if your looking for coolest possible the haf 932 will do you good. although down the road if you decide to do watercooling or silent computer you will not be happy with your choice. The only issue i had with my haf is dust it takes like a week or 2 for the whole case to get CAKED in dust so filters on the intake fans is a good idea.

fyi the fan on the door really helped lower temps when i was air cooling so if you can get one with the fan on the door get it, it made a difference.

i wouldn't suggest a haf 932 for watercooling imo, but you got 2 dedicated fans blowing on the graphic cards one 230 and the possibility of one 120, and for the cpu you have a 230 sucking air out the top and one 120 sucking out the rear there is way more air flow that can make a huge difference when air cooling.
