Default Cases on weekend sale, should I upgrade?

I have HAF 922 Midi Tower.
Would any of the cases below prove to be a considereable upgrade over my HAF922?
I value sound dampening, cooling, easy to build in, sturdyness, easy to upgrade in.
But feel free to mention other positive/negative things about the cases.

The following cases are now on 50% sale over the weekend:
  • Corsair Carbide 400R Midi Tower
  • Corsair Carbide 500R
  • HAF 932 Advanced Big Tower
  • Cooler Master HAF X Big Tower
Cheaper cases also on sale:
  • Cooler Master Elite 430 Midi Tower Black
  • Cooler Master Centurion 5 II Midi Tower

Aww, that's not in Canada. $88 CAD after conversion from 500 NOK, that's quite cheap .

I personally dislike the HAF series aesthetically and would go with the 500R. Black version looks quite sleek. But you've got a HAF922 and I don't really see any purpose to move from that case to any of these listed here. The 922 is good as it is functionality wise (the cases don't really offer anything more over the 922 other than looks and cable management )

I hate the whole HAF series so my opinion is biased , I wouldn't move "up" to a smaller case after owning the 922, I love the new value series from corsair (elite). Used a half dozen of these cases this year on small builds for family and they all commented on how good the case looked, and how quiet and cool the components were.

I have to agree with the posters above in re: to the HAF series, not a fan of how any of them look. If I had a choice, I'd go with the 500R.

It would be nice if the Corsair fanbois could take a second to write up why the 500R(?) is such a no-brainer over the HAF 922.
