Have you considered the NZXT Vulcan? It's a smaller mATX case, and has a handle that helps with transportation. Also has two fan controllers in the front, it's a pretty nifty case to have and look at.

so far, it looks like the 922 maybe what i go with. looks like plenty of room for Xfire and aftermarket cpu cooling.

Just food for thought here's the interior of my HAF 912 :



I added the extra 5.25" tool-less, 200mm fans and rubber feet.

Added edit: Also the HAF 922 you're considering has front air filters and the front panel removal is not so easy to what I hear as you have to remove 6 screws every time to access the front fan dust filter. So one askes how long will it take till the screw holes that hold the panel will no longer allow the screws to tighten? The only dust filters on this case reside in the front panel within the 5.25" covers and the front fan area. Just somethings for you to think about this case.

The HAF 912 has dust filters on the front and for the PSU - the front panel is more easily removed by releasing 6 total clips and the upper hard drive tray (which holds 4 hard drives) can either be removed if one needs extra space for a GPU, wants "more" air flow or turned around like in my photo above.

If you like the HAF 912 chassis but want a black interior maybe this case below will do as it pretty much has the same chassis as the HAF 912 with a few extras.
