My System Specs

Default Looking for a new case

Hey HWC, lately i been using the CM690. Now don't go off saying how it is such a great case or whatever, i totally agree. The truth is i want something that has more airflow + better look to it ( I'm sorry the cm690 looks dull to me). It is almost Christmas and boxing day so I'm ready to spend a few dollars on a brand new case.

Few cases i been eyeing are:

Cooler Master HAF 932:
I really like this one, good cooling, looks bad ass, plenty of room for cable managing and airflow. The major problems i got with this one is weight. I move my computer occasionally so does any one have experience moving this beast?

Thermaltake VH8000BWS Armor+ MX:
I kind of like this one, about the same price as the HAF. Yes i know this is a mid and HAF is a full tower. Any reason i would take this is because its lighter.

If anyone needs to know my budget is around 200$. Also i don't really need a water cooling option. BTW i'll probably be buying all these parts at a local canadacomputers. Anyone's opinions are welcome, and please share your experience with the case you suggest.

I have the HAF, it's a great case. It comes with little wheels to put on the bottom so if you're moving it from room to room weight shouldn't be an issue. However, I wouldn't reccomend it for a LAN party case or anything like that.

hmm wheels, sounds awesome! Yea, is there a cut out handle on the HAF's case? I used the CM690 box as it's traveling box most of the time since it had a cut out handle. If it does i don't think the weight will be that bad, unless the box gives out and my case falls down the stairs..
