Planning to retire my old beat up HAF912 and move my current build to a new case. Since I hate decisions (and I'm rather bad at them), I would appreciate some cons and pros for both of the title cases. Both I can get with free shipping from Amazon. The MasterCase is about $20 pricier than the Enthoo. I'm on air cooling and plan to stay like that, so radiator mounting options are of no importance to me. What I do care about is proper clearance and space (the HAF912 is a bit too small with my NH-D15 installed) to work and fan mounting options.
Right now I have three front intake fans on the HAF912. 2x120mm at the bottom front and 1x140mm inside the 5.25" drive cage mounted using some radiator brackets I had from my old water cooling days. Blocked top and side vents, with open vents at the rear. Works very good for my setup, so I would like to keep a similar config. in the new case. I see the MasterCase lets you mount 3x140mm fans in the front, so that's good for me. Does a 140mm fan fit inside the Enthoo's 5.25" cage (the top slot is taken up by the front I/O)? I only have three drives, 2 SSDs and 1 HDD. Will probably get rid of the secondary SSD since it only houses my rarely used Windows install. Therefore, I like the modular HDD cages on the MasterCase. The ones on the Enthoo seems rather bulky and restrictive in comparison.
