Upgrading Case

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So I have some spare cash and I was thinking about getting this:

http://www.playtech.co.nz/afawcs0139...ctdetails.html

The case I currently has is jam packed with my Corsair H70 and full of fans.
So what I'm saying is, would it be worth getting that HAF 912? Is there significantly more space in it than in my Cooler Master Gladiator 600?

My other question with a new case would be is the cable management good? My non-modular PSU makes a big cable mess in my current case because all the cables have to fit in the drive bay, although I may get a new power supply.

Lastly, I'm pretty sure on this, but it will fit all my hardware, right? There's nothing extra I'd have to buy?

$189 for that POS MIDTOWER! Don't buy from there!

You could get the red R-15 fans if blue does not suit you.

@ Elite-; everything is expensive here. The Corsair 800D is around $500.

Anyway, do you guys think I should get a full tower instead?
Keep in mind I have only blue fans at the moment.. will that look horrible mixed with red?
Also, I will only go out to buy the case, I can't get anything imported (don't ask).

EDIT: If you can find a better Cooler Master case using http://pricespy.co.nz/, then please give a link to it

Seriously Coolermaster cases feel cheap and plascticy. I didn't like the CM 430 Elite I bought my friend for his build. I rather pay an extra $30 or so and get a NZXT Phantom.

Okay, cool. Thanks for the opinion.

Has anyone had experience with the HAF X?

Another edit: I may consider an 800D if that's worth it? I would also consider an Antec 1200

800D may have the same issue as the HAF Black Edition...ooo, if you're considering the 1200, why not look into the Dark Fleet - 85, it's based on the 1200 chassis, but has many more features
