Yeah that's the only down side of the HAF is lack of fan filters, I was looking at a review of the Storm Sniper BE, saw at least on fan filter on the fan near the psu, not sure if there rest have them.

Both cases are pretty good..

I have a Storm Sniper, and it cools really well. I dunno it's a much nicer built case than the HAF if you ask me. It's not light though :P

One of the selling points for the HAF AMD was the option for top or bottom mounted psu. I should have mentioned it earlier.

Just in case people dunno, the HAF AMD is basically an original HAF with a pain job, and a custom side panel, (not entirely sure) but maybe a different led fan, but other than that, it has all the features the original HAF does..

Which includes a bottom mounted PSU, as mentioned ^^, a top mounted (with the removal of the top fans).

One or the other because i've never owned a coolermaster case before lol and they seem spacious unlike my 1200.
I'm leaning towards the Storm Sniper more because of the dust filters haha or should i wait for the HAF-X =S

I would take the Sniper BE, it has similar features to the HAF, plus dust filters and a sweet black interior. That is I would pick the Sniper if it was the only other choice, but have you had a look at the new Coolermaster 690 II? It's also a fantastic case incorparates many of the great features found in the HAF and Sniper BE, including dust filters and all black interior. Sure it may be a little more plain looking....but it's also cheaper and you can price match it for 71.99 which comes to 89.00 after taxes and shipping.
