post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi,
Iam Looking for a case for my new Pc and the primary Issue i have is finding something that will Keep my Two gtx 470 superoverclocks cool. I have been a big fan of the Haf x because i know it will move tones of Air and like the industrial look it has aswell. the to other options are the DF 85 and 1200 V3 from Antec. The Antec's are almost identical. I just would like you guys opinions and feed back about with cases would be the best for SLI'ing my two cards.

I would say go with the HAF X because of the ducted side panel fan and great air flow

Silverstone RV02e/RV03, Fractal Design Arc Midi, CM HAF X, Antec DF 85, Inwin Ironclad, and NZXT Phantom are the top cooling cases for under $200.

If you can afford it, HAF X, 932, 600T or 400R if you want to wait. The Antec cases are outdated and way too expensive for having almost no features compared to better competitors now.

I would HIGHLY advise against the 600t because that thing has next to no cooling.

The DF 85 though looks like it does jsuta bout the same as the HAF X i have always been Eyeing the HAf X. the only reason is my friend has it and hates it and my other friends bought there 932 and feel they dont move as much AIR. I would go the 800d but It not really set up for aircooling plus its a 300 dollar case and need another 100 put into it for water cooling. SO probaly thee best Case that will fit my two cards and Cool them Equaly as well is the HAF x?
