post #11 of 24
i thought the HAF cases were butt ugly from all the pics online, but i got a 932 black edition and its acculy really nice once i got it.. i only got it in the first place since it was a cheap large case for wcing.

Yeah the HAF series photos don't give those cases justice as they're IMO much better actually having them.

EDIT:Scratch that maybe the Phantom, tough decision.

The Phantom is a MUCH nicer looking case in all honesty, has much more room, a nicer HDD mounting setup and a better stock cooling solution to boot.

I'm honestly only stuck between the NZXT Tempest EVO and the NZXT Phantom White because of the difference in price. If there were $20 less in difference right now there would be no choice; the Phantom clearly.

The 690 is a classic and many people use it - the cable management is almost as good as the Phantom and the stock cooling is decent with plenty of upgrade options. But at the end of the day, it looks *just* like the rest of the cases. Nobody mistakes a Phantom, and it's not a gaudy piece of trend, and its features really justify the price difference.

I'm talking myself into the Phantom, you're just hearing the process ...

True true - this is a lovely case, and made it to my top 3. My main reason for not choosing it is because it looks too similar to my Antec 300.

Cable management is great, cooling is phenomenal, looks are stylish and workmanship is top notch.

OP - this is also a really good choice.

I bought a RV02-E recently. Great case, but I'm more and more drawn to maybe changing it out for a HAF for a future WC setup.

The RV02 is the best aircooling case out of all those mentioned. Would be my choice.

Ummmmmmm:

"One of these few is not like the others ... "

I get that the Lancool PC-K62 is much nicer than an Antec 300, and yes it IS different in that you can pick them apart, but PLEASE do not over-exaggerate such a semantic point as "they look NOTHING alike".

Both black, both standard-ish "box" shape, both have blue-LED 120mm fans on the front, both have square mesh covered fronts, both have black-plastic case-fronts ... come now
