Yup Haf 932 is the right choice. Coolermaster should rename it HWC absolute case. We all have it and we all love it. Well You have see idea for many case wich are all great, the last choice belong to you to take a case wich allow you to to everything you want and with a lay-out you are going to love.
Post question again if you have more to ask.

Alright well I guess my original top choice remains my top choice. I had been looking at that when I saw the Stacker and that thing just looked like a big beastly monster that could scare away viruses and keep my GF from wanting to turn it on. Hahaha Thanks for all your advice!

As the reviewer who did both the Haf932 and ATCS 840 reviews for HWC (and owned a Stacker 830 at one time) here is my two cents:

For AIR only: HAF 932 kicks the 840s arse.
For Water only: 840 is better.
Looks: toss up, the 840 is elegant and refined, the HAF932 is butt ugly BUT grows on you.
Bang for you buck: HAF 932 clear winner
Space restrictions: NEITHER they both are big arse cases!... but the HAF932 is a more manageable monster:)

Even though I have both my main rig uses a HAF932 and NOT a 840.

YMMV, but that's my two cents.

Hi AkG.. for us to go through the both reviews once again in detail would be a little tough and then to compare.

If you wouldn't mind mentioning what makes 840 a better in water cooling then 932. So far what I understood in your HAF review was there are multiple ways of mounting radiators, single, dual, triple even... which you mentioned overkill.. and we do love overkill indeed.

Please :)

The 840 is just more refined in its wc possibilites. In the HAF932 a tripple rad fits...but it is tight AND takes up a crap load of space in the 5.25 bays. Its also a bit more of a PITA to install. Whereas the 840 is longer & easier to work with. What really decided me though is the fact the 3rd fan will be partially blocked by the top "lid" of the HAF932...increasing static pressure and mucking with the air flow to the rad. The HAF has a fill port built in, but it is easy to add one to the 840....as you got room to spare on the top ;)
This really is splitting hairs as BOTH are good air and WC cases, but the HAF is a better air case and the ATCS is a better WC'er. Honestly, either will suit your needs NOW and in the future.

Hope this helps!
