It may be slightly smaller, but I don't mind, still bigger than a Mid size. As I said, I love the look of this case. For 5 bucks more than the HAF, I think this will be my new case. If I hadn't of seen this price, I definitely would've gone with the HAF, but I just can't pass this up. Thanks for the responses even if they ended up for naught.
nice deal! I just never liked the look of the antec 900 or 1200. I must admit the HAF932 isn't 'sexy' but all the functions and how good it feels working it in makes it 'sexy' to me. So it really does come down to what you like.

I've been doing some hunting for a new case lately as well. I'm strongly leaning towards the Thermaltake Element G. It has 2 x 200mm fans (one in the front and one on the top), 1 x 140mm at the back, and 1 x 230mm in the side panel. It has a fan speed controller which also allows you to change the colours of the LEDs from red, blue, green, alternating colours, or turn the LEDs off. It has an all black interior and a decent cable management system. There's also an access hole for the cpu backplate so you can change coolers without removing the motherboard. I plan on getting it from NCIX and price matching with DirectCanada, which turns out to be roughly $145 before taxes and shipping. Can't beat that IMO.

You guys are amazing. I compared the two cases in person today, and holy crap, is the HAF ever PURRRDY. The pics don't do it justice. From images on the internet the 1200 looks better than the HAF, but in person it all comes together and the HAF just kicks the 1200s ass. Thanks for the recommendation guys, I'm going back with the HAF!

I have used the Antec 900 first gen. and the TT Armor and now I am using the HAF 932. Without questions, the 932 is the best case I have ever used. Cooling is more than adequate and the cable management is superb. The cable management was not so great with the two previous enclosures. The styling is a bit peculiar but this is really a matter of personnel taste and I'd like it better with no red led into the front fan. The only con, IMHO, is the seize that can be a problem depending where you have your rig standing. In this price range, this case rule supreme...
