HAF X that good for air cooling ?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I hear alot of people say Haf X is the best for air cooling well i have had it for couple of months it's okey I don't no if i should have gone for a SilverStone FT02 ??? are there any other NEW Full tower cases out that are really good for air ?

nah man haf x for sure is one of the best options considering you already got it the ratio between price/performance if you update to something more extreme isnt worth it imo

Considering that HAF stands for High Air Flow, I'd say its pretty good.
Antecs Dark Fleet series has fairly decent airflow. AFAIK the SilverStone FT02 is more suited for Liquid cooling.

HAF-X is amazing for air cooling, one of the best out.

Don't fret, you made the right choice.

HAF X cannot be beat for the price in both water and air. But if you are looking to go water the 800D for 100 more is often recommended.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME? you cannot even mount a 360 rad cleanly inside the case and here you are saying that FT02/RV02 is good for liquid?

Isn't the front fan partially blocked by the huge HD cage? Or can it move / break down a bit like it can in the 912 if you don't use that many drives?
