Hey guys, ordering my new case tomorrow, so far I'm
torn between a haf x and the silverstone fortress ft0b. I will
most likely stick to air cooling how ever I may consider water one day.

Any opinions are appeciated thanks guys.

Which Silverstone Fortress? I'd rather have an FT02 than the HAF-X since I'm not a huge fan of the HAF-X styling. I like the superior build quality of the FT02, but both have very good stock airflow, great potential airflow, good water cooling support and great cable management. Go with whichever one you think has better looks. Seeing as how you have an HAF 932 in your system specs, upgrading is hardly necessary unless you want something different. The FT02 is certainly a nice change.

My suggestion, its a great case, I actually just bought two of them cause the price was so great... I dont have a system for it but who cares, its classy.
I'll take one off your hands.

Pentium II doesn't deserve a PC-A70F. My i5 rig does though.

The PC-A70F and PC-A71F are pretty much what the ATCS 840 wants to be. The only real advantage the ATCS 840 has is the standard water cooling support. But other top panels for the Lian-Li cases are sold separately, for those who water cool.

The LIAN LI PC-A70F is a nice case. I may have to bite the $ and get one myself. The 700d would be my choice followed by the Coolermaster 840. The 840 would win if it had the 700d's front


Warning! Don't look at IcyPimpHands link if you value your eyes! ^^ is death of all reason and sanity. I must now add bleach

It is shocking to me that anyone can look at these two cases and not come to the same conclusion.

I had a 932 for 2 years, and my new 700D is really gorgeous... I recommend it. It's much bigger than the 932 and really well-designed. Cable management out the wazoo, and airflow really isn't a problem like I thought it would be. The intake fan points directly at the bottom of the graphics card (where the fan is), and with 3 fans on top, there are no problems with ventilation.

Definitely consider it

I assume the 800D would be a great choice as well?

I have a gtx 480 now, it wouldn't get too hot inside it would it?

Night even add some watercooling to it.
