I like my cooler Masters. and the Haf seems like a great in-between from budget to high end.

Haf has too much plastic and plastic mesh for my liking. I'm after something simple, and I'm now trying to decide between:

1. TJ-09B
2. PC-A70B
3. FT-01B

In that order, so far.

If I didn't want some more space I'd be all over the PC-A05B.

I definitely considered this (HAF 932) prior to my TJ09, very good looking Case for cooling price is very reasonable!! I liked the more "polished" look of the Silverstone however.

Well thanks to all those who helped me out with your feedback.

After debating heavily between the expensive cases, I decided that my cheapness will prevail and I will most likely be picking up a Lian Li PC-A07B if I can ever find a Canadian retailer that carries them. So far I seem to be finding them in the US for about $120, which I can justify spending.

I will end up removing the 3.5" internal drive bay rack and putting something like the Thermaltake icage or the Lian Li or Silverstone equivalent. Basically a 4-in-3 bay conversion rack with an 800rpm 120mm fan or so, as long as I can keep the bay covers on, I don't want to mess with the look of the front of the case.

Canada Computers is selling what I believe is the case you are looking for at under $100. Or at least it just might be close enough.

Canada Computers - Cases > Mid Towers : LIAN-LI PC-7B PLUS II Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case.
