HAF 922 vs Lanboy Air vs Other?
 
I am indecisive, I'd like to not spend more than $130 or so on my case but I also want to find quality to keep my components clean and cool. I've been looking heavily at both the HAF 922 and Lanboy Air and I just can't decide between the 2 (other than price and appearance). Does anyone have suggestions?

My specs will be:
Micro Center - ASUS P8Z68-V LGA 1155 Z68 ATX Intel Motherboard 505917
Micro Center - Intel Core i7 2600K LGA 1155 Boxed Processor 179499

Have you considered the Corsair 500r? I think it's right around 130.

I'm a huge advocate of the Thermaltake Chaser Mk-I if the looks appeal to you.

i've heard bad, bad, bad things about the lanboy air. Probably the worst case around.

For me (is size doesn't matters), it's the HAF932 clean and clear.

Every review I have ever seen on the Lanboy always shown something wrong with the configuration of the case. Either the amount of fans they said would fit did not, or the way the person wanted to set it up, they had a problem with fan clearence. Over all conclusion was not to buy this product. It was a great idea of a case fully modular but they did not do enough design review before they launched it on the market (totally my opinion). Haf 922 is from the reviews a great cooling case and leaves you with alot of upgrade capability.

Actually I think I like this better than the 922/932... my only concern is that I can't find any sort of case mods to replace all the blue plastic with green instead. Know of any?

Saw that one but it didn't really impress me...

Not that I know of, but then again it is just on the front expansion bays and along the top vents. the expansion bays, you could probably replace with something else. I dunno.

Well, @134.99 untill the Oct 26th I have to say the Silverstone RV03-B is an awesome case. I love mine and I would buy a second in a heart beat. Between the 2 you mentioned I would probably go with the HAF. I don't like them myself, but I would buy one before a Lanboy, based on reviews and customer satisfaction.

How about the LIAN LI Lancool First Knight Series PC-K9WX Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Very nice case closely resembling the Corsair 650D. Lian Li cases are usually ridiculously priced but this one is very fair price.
