Corsair 500r vs Cooler Master HAF932 Advanced

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Newegg has a special on the white 500r for 119.99 right now. Haf932 is 125-130 dollars. I'm trying to decide between these two cases =/

What's your intended use? The HAF 932 is a larger case, technically a full tower. If you're planning to do extensive watercooling, it's better for that.

The 500R has removable hard drive cages, more fan mount locations, and integrated fan speed control and LED on/off switch, not to mention arguably superior cable routing and native SSD compatibility.

They're both good cases, but the 500R is a newer design and a bit more compact. If you are doing more than one 240mm radiator though, you might want more room.

I intend to do an air cooling setup, and I was under the impression that the HAF 932 flows better. My components would probably fit into either case fairly easily, I just want the case that will flow more air. How many points does the 500r have to mount fans as opposed to the HAF?

The 932 comes with more 200mm+ fans, stock.

The 500R can fit up to 10 fans (dual front, dual on back of hdd cages, one bottom, dual top, one back, dual side). Default, it comes with dual 120mm in front, a 120mm on back, and a 200mm side fan for the GPUs.
