CoolMaster 690 Advance II to HAF32. Worth the upgrade as far as cooling goes?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Currently I have a CoolMaster 690 Advance II and was looking at going with a Full Tower HAF-932. Would there be an improvement in cooling if I did so. Also looking at an IN-Win Dragon. On another note, what about color? Would a white case be cooler than black?

Actually instead of the HAF-32, think I'll go with the IN-Win Dragon.

HAF 32 does not exist, and the In-Win cases have been getting really mixed reviews. Dont bother, the CM690II is an awesome case.

As a HAF series owner I already knew that.

I thought maybe the OP found a special won ton soup special case named a HAF-32. lol!

If you are going full tower I would probably get a NZXT Phantom. They are always for sale on newegg for around 100$ with free shippings. Don't know if I would go with a white case, but the few that I have seen look very sexy.
Edit - they have a black, white and red case available for the Phantom.

Also FWIW I went from a Full Tower back down to a Mid Tower and I am so happy that I did. Unless you plan on doing some crazy custom water loop or doing 3 or 4 way sLi or crossfire it's really not need IMMO.
