I use a Coolermaster Haf X EATX. It has awesome cable management and I love how the hard drive are mounted sideways, much better for cable management.

Another case that has phenomenal cable management but does not have a window is the Corsair Graphite Series 600T. You can watch a video of its cable management in action below.


If you want awesome cable management with a window the Corsair Obsidian Series 800D is a higher end alternitive to the Coolermaster Haf X I have.

Hope I helped!

an exhaust fan up top is nothing special, even if it's 200mm

not to mention the tricools that come with the 900 suck so bad

Wow, you guys are a huge help so far... Love it!!

As far as price.. I really want to stay under $200 .. I just spent $1000 on the 980x for my video encoding.. and I'm a college student.. so the cheaper the better.. but I want QUALITY and the best cable management, where everything looks perfectly mounted and cools greatly..

I liked the HAF-932 for cable management (I also have Antec 300,900,1200). With the HAF-932 I like the ability to route cables through that break in the case structure (where the red SATA cables are in the picture). The 932 is without question better than any of the Antecs I have and the 900 is the worst Antec I have

Holy ***** bro. Did you get the back panel closed without having to force it on that? It looks similar to the Antec 900 back? Does it have more cutout holes that I'm missing or something?
