Go look at the Thermaltake case line, they are incredibly plasticky and cheap. The HAF line is as successful as it is for a reason.

well the haf x costs 100€ more then the chaser and chaser has 3x 200mm fans and 2x 140mm fans and its mostly 60% steel 20% hard plastic 20% plastic.

Well then it sounds like you've made up your mind. If you're having a hard time justifying the added cost of the HAF X, go look at them side-by-side. You'll get opinions here both ways, and unless you can physically inspect the cases, you're buying blindly.

Don't worry you will like it. But if you really want a HAF get the 932.

biggrin.gif The only thing I don't like about the chaser is that mine did not come with rubber footings inside the bottom feet, I don't know if its just mine or all of them come like that, but its an easy fix.

holy hell! this is an old thread obviously, but I wanted to speak up here. I don't understand all of the hate with Thermaltake but let me put some of it to rest.

I myself own the Thermaltake Chaser MK-1 and I can flat out tell you it DOMINATES other cases around the same price range. Go look at ANY review online...seriously they will say the same thing. It is made up of mostly steel, along with hard plastic (as is the ha fx)... and the tool-less design / hotswap bays are amazing! All with the capability to accommodate 3.5 or 2.5 drives regardless. Extremely spacey (easily able to have a multiple sli setup) and can accommodate high end water cooling. The case itself is extremely sturdy, and well built all around. Air flow is a must, and once again if you do ANY online research the breakdown of the airflow is amazing. The look might be a little too aggressive... but seriously all of this hate against the case with absolutely ABSURD accusations is just ignorant T.T go look at any reviews online. The Chaser MK-1 is the case to beat in the price range. Don't knock it just because it's Thermaltake, the case is amazing! :]

Glad you went with the Thermaltake in the end, and again sorry for reviving a dead thread, but I really wanted to speak my mind about this killer case ^-^
