The cases:
CM Storm Enforcer:
Click
CM 912 Advanced(supposted to be Asia only,but it's available here in Europe)
Click
The interior of both looks the same.Should i go for the HAF because it has the option of side panel 120mm fan?The HAF 912 Advanced comes with pre-installed 200mm fan on the top,the Megaflow 200mm.I was going to buy with with the storm enforcer.
Cooling on both,pre-installed and optional:
HAF 912 Advanced :
Cooling System Front: 200 mm red LED fan x 1, 700RPM,19dBA (can be swapped for two 120mm fans) Top: 200 mm black fan x 1,700RPM,19dBA (can be swapped for two 120mm fans) Rear: 120 mm black fan x 1, 1200 RPM, 17 dBA Side:120/140 mm fan x 1 (optional)
Storm Enforcer:
Cooling System Front: 200mm Red LED fan x 1, 1000 RPM, 19 dBA Rear: 120mm black fan x 1, 1200 RPM, 17 dBA Top: 200 mm black fan x 1 (optional ; can be swapped for two 120mm fans)
So the HAF 912 Advanced comes with free 200mm top and optional 120mm side.The fans on the HAF 912 Advanced have more RPM too,1,700 compared to 1,000RPM.
Is the interior exactly the same? I really like the one of the Storm Enforcer.
Pricing: (my currency)
Storm Enforcer + additional 200mm fan for the top = 170 BULGARIAN LEV
HAF 912 Advanced(comes with 200mm on top) = 140 BULGARIAN LEV
P.S. I like how both looks,maybe the storm enforcer a bit more but whatever,i'll sacrafice the opening/closing thingy on the front.Do they have the same space inside?Is the cable management in them the same because i really want to do some.
Thx in advance.

They are the same chassis just that they have different top and front panels - now it's your choice. biggrin.gif

I'll go for the HAF 912 Adv.
Main reason - it's cheaper and looks really bad ass and it gives the option for a side fan.
P.S. Price of the storm enforcer is 180,not 170 as i said in my first post.So 40 bulgarian levs profit biggrin.gif

After reading all the good responses and seing all the good reviews of the HAF 912 Adv,i'll definetely go for it.Ordering tomorrow,let's hope everything will arrive and get transfered to the new case until the next weekend.Can't wait to finally put my good parts(imo they're pretty decent) in a good home.

I'll add your profile to my address book in Google Chrome and once i'm done,i'll personally send you a picture.Don't expect something extreme though,it would be my first cable management attempt in a case that supports it.I have only one problem(hesitation) - my 8pin connector is 550mm,will it be long enought to reach my 8pin mobo connector? I'm really afraid it won't and i'll have to wait few days to order extension cable.And other question...i'll probably have to delay it even a bit more if that's the case...From my PSU,there is a weird noise coming out of it.It's not a problem for me,but i'm worried of it's something broken... Click Watch this video - in it i recorded the noise.Can this indicate a faulty PSU? I haven't had problems with it at all powering my system for about 2 months now.

I'm pretty sure the case comes with an extension for that mobo cord (cant remember what case it came with) and if not their not that expensive.

Edit: Can you rma the psu?
