I don't think a comparison of dimensions is relevant because of the alternative layout of the Raven.. to me, it looks like the Raven has less usable space, despite it's large exterior.

The HAF-X seems like your best option for (slightly) more space and (slightly) improved cable management, but I can't say I think it's worth it upgrading from a 932 because they're so similar.

Well according to bill review of the case the material is pretty good and the case isn't cheap as other. For the raven, the case is huge but not so high. I seriously find it smaller to work in but it's still good. If you are looking for something that is bigger than a haf 932 to workin. Raven is not the way to go IMO.

I agree that the Raven looks bigger from the outside than what you'd think. Personally, I feel it takes more cable management skill to make it look clean, compared to other suggested cases. Do a quick google search, and you'll hit up a visual thread with hundreds of builds specifically utilizing the Raven.

From the people whom I've seen review it including Mpctech , its actually very good build quality. I won't know till I get one.

My ATCS 840 was much roomier than the HAF 932 it replaced. HWC has a review on a silver one (I have the black).

Hmm, anyone know of something stylish, but larger then the HAF 932? Im just looking for a beast of a case, that wont cut my hands (lol 932 took a chip outa my knuckle last time i swapped boards). BTW how do those silverstone sound dampening pads work? My desktop sounds like a jet taking off, id like to calm it down a bit, and for $20 i dont mind it.

BTW, any local Calgarians need a 932? When I get a new case, id be happy to sell it for like $60 lol

Could you do me a favor and take a picture of the interior, perhaps all mounted, just so I can get a rough ideal of space.

Thanks!

Lilly pcx-2000 big, stylish, Alu, sound dampening.....but might be out of your price range. If you know someone with PP you can knock down the price a bit.

Been more than happy with mine, superb air cooling and whisper quiet.
