Worth upgrading my Antec 1200? CM HAF X or Corsair Obsidian

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I currently have an Antec 1200...been using it for almost 4 years now..and it has been amazing. It came with like 8 stock fans...and it cools my system very well. I only do Air..no Water. The filters on fans (that other cases lack) can be annoying to clean every 2/3 months or so, but i think its worth it to keep the inside of my case clean (reduce gpu dust clog, etc.). I also think it looks better than most other cases that have crazy ugly case designs. Installing/swapping hardware isn't the most friendly...but it's not like I do that often..if ever.

However, I am building a new system and was thinking whether there are significantly better case options out there. Perhaps the COOLER MASTER HAF X or Corsair Obsidian Series 800D?? I know they are superior in cable management...but I am not sure whether its worth the upgrade.

What do you guys think...should I upgrade the case..or leave it? Is it worth buying a new case or should I keep my Antec 1200 case? I am just not sure if these new cases have significant features I am currently missing out on.

Don't bother considering the Corsair Obsidian for air cooling, it sucks ass completely.

The HAF X is a great aircooling case. TBH out of the two I would have to go with that.

Do you think the HAF X is a big enough upgrade over my current Antec 1200 to warrant a purchase? that's the real question.

Not really,

There are some design changes, but the antec 1200 is still a very very capable case.

Personally, I wouldn't bother, not unless I was going water and then i'd go with the corsair obsidian.
