If you are getting water cooling, then Corsair 800D or Fractal Design R3, XL. I personally have the XL, and its one of the best cable management cases I have ever seen.

Air cooling, I guess the HAF or something along those lines.

Was going to get the Hyper 212+ or the Noctua D14, depends on how much money I have at the time of purchase.

Which HAF are you speaking of? The X is kind of out of my budget.

The HAF 932 is a good full tower, with plenty of space for watercooling and whatever hardware you want to fit inside. Air cooling inside the case is also good. Some people dislike the looks (me included), but that's a personal preference I guess.



However, if you want the BEST air cooling case, look into the SilverStone RV02 or FT02 (depending on budget). Those two cases are the top air cooling cases right now. Also, there is more then enough space for you to fit a longer GPU inside. I also love how the RV02/FT02 looks.

Yeah, the HAF 932 and NZXT Phantom were my primary choices before making the thread, didn't know if there were any other in that price range that are good.

I had the HAF 932, don't take my word for it, yesterday i downgraded to a 690ll Advanced case....if your going for a HAF case, go for the HAF-X....the 932 is a dust magnet!!!! Unless you take the initiative to look for some custom dust filters and what not go ahead, cable managements MUCH BETTER in the HAF-X and the Phantom.

Phantoms got enough going for it to be a huge hit, and the HAF series are a proven series....either way, it's a win-win for you!!!

My house is incredibly dusty, I have an air filter on full blast in my room 24/7 and I still have to wipe my case down about twice a week, so dust isn't a problem, but I think I'll go with the NZXT Phantom. Thanks for your help everyone. +rep all around!
