The cases:
CM Storm Enforcer:
Click
CM 912 Advanced(supposted to be Asia only,but it's available here in Europe)
Click
The interior of both looks the same.Should i go for the HAF because it has the option of side panel 120mm fan?The HAF 912 Advanced comes with pre-installed 200mm fan on the top,the Megaflow 200mm.I was going to buy with with the storm enforcer.
Cooling on both,pre-installed and optional:
HAF 912 Advanced :
Cooling System Front: 200 mm red LED fan x 1, 700RPM,19dBA (can be swapped for two 120mm fans) Top: 200 mm black fan x 1,700RPM,19dBA (can be swapped for two 120mm fans) Rear: 120 mm black fan x 1, 1200 RPM, 17 dBA Side:120/140 mm fan x 1 (optional)
Storm Enforcer:
Cooling System Front: 200mm Red LED fan x 1, 1000 RPM, 19 dBA Rear: 120mm black fan x 1, 1200 RPM, 17 dBA Top: 200 mm black fan x 1 (optional ; can be swapped for two 120mm fans)
So the HAF 912 Advanced comes with free 200mm top and optional 120mm side.The fans on the HAF 912 Advanced have more RPM too,1,700 compared to 1,000RPM.
Is the interior exactly the same? I really like the one of the Storm Enforcer.
Pricing: (my currency)
Storm Enforcer + additional 200mm fan for the top = 170 BULGARIAN LEV
HAF 912 Advanced(comes with 200mm on top) = 140 BULGARIAN LEV
P.S. I like how both looks,maybe the storm enforcer a bit more but whatever,i'll sacrafice the opening/closing thingy on the front.Do they have the same space inside?Is the cable management in them the same because i really want to do some.
Thx in advance.

They are the same chassis just that they have different top and front panels - now it's your choice.

I'll go for the HAF 912 Adv.
Main reason - it's cheaper and looks really bad ass and it gives the option for a side fan.
P.S. Price of the storm enforcer is 180,not 170 as i said in my first post.So 40 bulgarian levs profit

After reading all the good responses and seing all the good reviews of the HAF 912 Adv,i'll definetely go for it.Ordering tomorrow,let's hope everything will arrive and get transfered to the new case until the next weekend.Can't wait to finally put my good parts(imo they're pretty decent) in a good home.

I'll add your profile to my address book in Google Chrome and once i'm done,i'll personally send you a picture.Don't expect something extreme though,it would be my first cable management attempt in a case that supports it.I have only one problem(hesitation) - my 8pin connector is 550mm,will it be long enought to reach my 8pin mobo connector? I'm really afraid it won't and i'll have to wait few days to order extension cable.And other question...i'll probably have to delay it even a bit more if that's the case...From my PSU,there is a weird noise coming out of it.It's not a problem for me,but i'm worried of it's something broken... Click Watch this video - in it i recorded the noise.Can this indicate a faulty PSU? I haven't had problems with it at all powering my system for about 2 months now.

I'm pretty sure the case comes with an extension for that mobo cord (cant remember what case it came with) and if not their not that expensive.

Edit: Can you rma the psu?

The 8pin cable might be too short.

Also in that video is it only the PSU that is running or the whole computer?

I hear what it sounds like multiple fans, are you saying that your fan is making more noise than normal? I do see that it's a Seasonic PSU.

Perhaps you may look into RMA-ing your PSU as that fan shouldn't be making any funny noises.

You can tell them buzzing, but you can also say that there's noise coming from the PSU that wasn't there before and it's continuous and annoying.

Just a FYI: If you had their "X" series PSU's the fan in those are superior and it only comes on when necessary (haven't even heard them turn on) and it's a quiet PSU overall. I have two the Seasonic X-650 and Corsair AX750 which is pretty much a Seasonic X750/760.

I would of bought it but x650 isnt available.Only 800W and more which is freaking expensive.Lets hope its just a noise thats not related to any problems.Im at school right now,im frm my phone.Ill go and see for xase availability because delivery would cost me a lot for a case.If it isnt available thoigh,ill still order it,ill have to just pay a 15$ delivery.If my PSU is faulty,wich PSU would be with the same quality or even better for same or a bit more expensive?

I feel for you great people outside of North America to the pricing of the same type things that are so much more money where you are for the same. Now being I don't know what's available to you in your country below is a link to recommended PSU's and the first post has great information and suggest you read it all.

Here's the link: http://www.overclock.net/t/183810/faq-recommended-power-supplies/0_100
