i can deny that the HAF 912 is a bad case BUT if you wan it Future Proof and have WC in mind in near future then M59 is a better Option as it has 2 x 120mm fan slots on the Top and a side widow (dont know what made me say that but ya you get a Side window to show off the monster wink.gif) were as the HAF 912 have a 200mm top exhaust the 240mmRad had too be externally connected which some people dont like looks wise but my vote is still to the Phantom 410 if you have a 1oo$ thumb.gif

I love my Silverstone Raven 2 , theres a newer version out http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811163173&Tpk=raven%202%20evolution
the raven 3 is not as big but also more cheaply made. I love the graphics cards dumping the hot air straight out the top and it kept my 470s in sli relatively frost smile.gif

I have the extra dough, I just can't justify paying another $50 for $5 in features. I can always mod more AC in it. And no, I don't intend on doing WC any time soon, if ever. When Ivy can probably hit 5GHz on High End Air Stable on Prime95 for 12 hours (hasn't been officially confirmed, but it is probably the case), I don't think I would like all the complications of WC for another 1GHz or so of power, when the chip will probably last that much less for OCing it that much.

Way out of my price range. But thanks for the recommendation. I intend on using like at least 4 fans, probably more like 6.

Now that I own both it was definitely easier to build in the 912 and looks better imo. I was all about the side window but that didn't last long. After all I already know what the inside of my case looks like.

That's just the thing, in this things lifetime, it will probably only been seen by a dozen people, most-likely much less.
