Well the Armor Extreme was mainly designed for the AMD-FX mobos and now IMO the SkullTrail can make use of it

If I were you, the Armor+ is the way to go. I have one, the one in my sig rig and it is excellent air-flow and cable management. Could not find any faults.

Is the Extreme a more top-end model than the Armor+ ?. I had to cross off COSMOS-S due to no TRUE .

I think it's more just optimized for the AMD dual processor system, making use of the side panel for the CPU rather than general case air flow. the Armor+, like Thunderer said, would be a better choice for you.

I still havent decided between Armor+, Kandalf and Xaser. Can anyone help me please? Also any actual cooling diff between black/silver armor+ ?
post #7 of 9
I doubt there'd be a noticable cooling difference, other than black attracts heat more, but that won't affect your temps at all, since the inside isn't black. I'd have to say armor, because I love my armor case and I feel it's the roomiest of the three.

Well, the Armor+ is the biggest case of them all by cm there and there.

The Kandalf is roomy too but abit smaller than the Armor+.

The Xaser (VI) is practically about the same size as the Armor+ but again, it has some cm there and there.

Choice - either Armor+ if you want a removable motherboard tray and some better room and would use WC in the future OR the Kandalf if you just want an air-cooled PC.

Witht regards to the color, the black one is all steel whilst the silver one is all aluminum, including the chassis. I have the silver one and it looks very neat

I've narrowed it down to the Xaser VI and the Armor+. I didn't like the PSU placement on the Kandalf. My Antec Sonata II is black .
