Looking for a case with good airflow.

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm looking for a case which can provide some decent airflow. I had my eye on the AeroCool Strike-X black.

Or is the HAF 912 simply that much better in terms of airflow ( it doesn't seem as 'ventilated' )? Any other recommendations, maybe?

Thanks.

Silverstone FT02 is awesome, great airflow cool looking and very quite

but it's price tag is 250 so what is your budget for the case?

That price range is a bit steep. I was looking for something a bit more affordable, similar to the cases I've mentioned.

NZXT Phantom is 140$ it's nice and has good airflow and great looking too but nothing can beat the FT02

Well, if you don't want a steeply priced case, that still looks good and everything, I'd grab a HAF 912. I wouldn't buy any other of the HAF Cases since they look extremely ugly.

Good airflow? Lanboy air...haha. But really, I like my HAF-X.

The HAF 922 I'm using is great, so I would guess the 912 would be pretty good too. When I switched from a crappy case to this one, my temps dropped way down on all my stuff.

dont get a v3 or a v4, i've owned both and both have TERRIBLE cable management. The HAF 912 is where its at. Good airflow, and i picked mine up at micro center for like $45.

IMHO, Tt cases suck real bad, *Tt fans don't groan me*. Better get any of the HAF cases.
