CM 690 II or Haf922?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Kind of leaning on going with 690 II basic or advanced. Is the haf922 overall a better case? The 922 would cost me $10 more from newegg. Any other choices for under $100 that would be just as good as either of the 2 options?

I would recommend the 690 II over the Haf922.

However, for under $100 I would buy

Why would you go with the A90 over the other two cases?
I'm looking at buying the HAF922, but am still open to other case suggestions.

I prefer Thermal Take cases, most of them are very high quality.
I also like how the case looks.

Doesn't seem to have good cable management. Though i didn't mention i'd perfer that in my first post. Coming from a p180 i'd highly want that as part of the case.
