One of the best cases ? [ cooling ]

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hello!

I thought of getting a new case some time ago , and now could do it.

I haven't though of any other case than HAF X. In my opinion , it's currently the best case in cooling performance and features.

I looked up NZXT Phantom , and it looks pretty cool , but is it better in cooling than HAF X ?



And , probably this won't be solved , but, is there any other Full Tower case that would be better than HAF X if X has all fans ?


I know a lot of you don't like the way HAF cases look , especially HAF X , in my opinion , it looks awesome !



So , your opinions , any case better in air cooling than HAF X [ Full Tower ] ?

I've heard good stories about CM HAF series. Haf X is good but so huge unless you use a EATX board, so my personal choice is Haf 922 w/c I will get soon.

Yes , it's big , but I like it Can put all necessary things in , space for long graphics cards and big CPU coolers , and when you put '' big stuff '' in , you still have space and that's good in my opinions.

But , it's kinda old I guess , anyone heard anything about new HAF cases ??

Depending on your taste, you can look at the INwin DRagon rider full tower-it is one of the best cases out there. Only draw back it has is you have to remove the 220mm side fan if your going to use a monster air cooler, but i did any way with my liquid cooler, because you can put up too 6 120mm fans on the side if you want-cools fantastic, i love mine, have to say out of the cases over the years this one is one of the best i,ve ever had. Killer price at newegg right now too!!

nothing wrong with "old" cases The TJ07 is still one of the most modded and considered to be the best case out there and it came out about 6 years ago

When I think of it , are there any umm kit mods for HAF X ?

I don't want to damage the case if I get it , but I mean things I could replace , add.

Like , to have 4 giant fans on side panel.

Not necessarily. If you were to cut those extra holes you'd have to have lots of time and a dremel, or lots of money with a powerful Drill and a 8" Hole Saw for a 200MM fan.

The HAF X doesn't look bad, but it's no-where preferred on the looks list of mine.

Well , that side window was just as an example , so no kits for HAF X modding ?
