Any way to compare these?
The winner would be the HAF-X in terms of performance. Aesthetics wise, The NZXT/The Silverstone would win. But may I ask what kind of GPU cooling are you going to be using? If you are using a GPU cooler that dumps heat in the case (Twin Frozr II/III), you are better off with a normal mobo layout, instead of the 90 degree rotation. The HAF 932 would be a smaller version of the HAF-X, which is still big. The HAF-X's dust filters are useless...just sayin.
I absolutely have to recommend the R3. It's a great mid tower, looks awesome, has great cable management, albeit the minimal, yet sufficient space behind the mobo panel. It's built for silent computing with noise dampening materials everywhere, only issue is if you are going to buy monstrously long cards, you might not be able to fit it (290mm & above) :/ It cools well and is cheap for the quality you get as well.
You can also consider the Carbide 500r, which is a great mid tower.
