Need a new case to accomadate my new MB asus Crosshair V formula

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
After installing my new motherboard the asus crosshair V formula, I ran into one problem, I am forced to use the 1st and 2nd pcie slots. Well the issue is the 2nd slot is x8 lane only and causes my video cards to be right on top of each other. The temps only rised a bit,but I am needing a new case to accomadate my motherboard. My current case is the haf 922, but I know now i need a full tower. After searching for ever I have narrowed it down to the haf-x or the raven R02B-ew? I need advice, I can not decide. By the way the front audio hd panel connector of my haf 922 ,also came in between the third pcie x16 slot and my saphirre 6950 2gb refrence vieo card!
I would appreciate any advise you all can give me!

I will be upgrading to the haf x. I can't wait. Plus, I will be getting the crosshair V at the same time.

RV02-EW/RV03-B

Many will disagree, but they are in the top 5 best air cooling cases on the market - both can accommodate an E-ATX motherboard. The install into the RV03 was a bit difficult for me, but I highly doubt anyone with previous building experience would have an issue.

The HAF-X always seemed a little overrated to me. A good portion of the fans need replaced, and it doesn't come with (3?) of the fans pre-installed. I just never saw why people would pick it over something like an RV02/FT02, etc.

If you ever plan on watercooling in the future, I'd check out the 800D as well. Massive freakin' case, only marginally more expensive than the HAF.

I want the rv02-ew but I am not sure that the gpu's will line up correctly, so that I can use lane 1 and 3 for. Crossfire? I am also gonna go with 2 of the new 600 series NVIDIA cards when they come out,maybe even 3 if the wife lets me, lol!!
