If it had to be out of those, i'd say the tempest evo.

But my favorite case is the Coolermaster 690 II. Best case i've ever used, and i've gone through quite a bit of them.

Out of what you have listed i would pick the Thermaltake v9 Blacx. That was the case I was going to buy before i found out the cm 690II.

EDIT: The cm storm scout is also a really good case.

I have the Lexa S for my wife's build I did recently, I got it for an amazing price and really like it. My favorite thing about the NZXT cases is that they always have the painted interior, for some reason I can't stand the standard steel color.

Antec 1200 has amazing airflow, but at the same time is hindered by it's cable managment, or lackfore of. which negate's it's potentially good airflow.

the haf 932 is still amazing. it's age is irrelevent. still is here. still works. still does what ever u need it to.

all HAF case's the CM690 II. the NZXT evo.

The Coolermaster 690 II looks so much like the tempest evo but without the window.
I want a case with a big window to display my LEDS but the CM 690 II does look very nice!!

Thermaltake v9 Black has a painted black interior and looks very smart!
Its so hard to pick. Do you think a case without a door would be better for someone who wants a LED display effect? The Lexa S looks smart 2! I've noticed that the window is black so does that mean the LEDS won't shine that bright like the clear windows do??

Just going to check out the Haf 932
Antec 1200.
