The Storm Sniper has amazing airflow, quiet fans and a nice feature with turning off the LEDs. To me the HAF doesn't look that great though, I don't like the checkered window.

Some like the looks, others don't. It's far more boxy and ammo-crate style than most others, but a few people like me like it. Especially us that bought it before 30 trillion others did

You'll appreciate it and so will that hot running 780i chipset being housed in the HAF932 instead of the sniper. I've had the pleasure of working on a i7 build that was housed in a HAF932 the room to work in with that cases is awesome, but yes it is a behemoth and casters are wise investment if that thing is going to find its place on the floor.

I thought you were swinging towards the HAF Shayan, either way you're stilling get a good case just each have their pros and cons. I prefer the HAF932 due to its large interior and airflow, but I'm most sure the Storm Sniper will serve you well.
