Straight up: HAF 932 vs Antec 1200

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've been looking for a while at cases at the $160 price point. Which case offers higher cfm, and better cooling at stock? Also, is there any case better than these for the same price? All I have been able to find is empirical evidence. does anyone have statistics?

raven 02-ew if you're not concerned about how large gpus might get in the future. As of now though, it fits the largest available gpus, has incredible airflow and full dust filter coverage.

the only advantage of the 1200 over the haf 932 advanced/haf x is that the antec 1200 has a better dust filter system. the cooling performance is close between these cases. haf for everything else.

why did you mention the haf 932 and not the haf x?

I'm try to decide between cases at this price point and i'm leaning toward the haf x for future 'proofing'. if the raven 02-ew fit longer gpus then i would get that.

HAF X is most likely not in his price range since he said 160 dollar range.

Hmm.. In Canada you can get the HAF x for less than the Antec 1200. The new HAF 932 advanced is the same price as the HAF X.

The normal HAF 932 is about 25 dollars less expensive than the HAF X, but the Antec 1200 is still more than the HAF X.
