BFG
....

I just cant get behind BFG, I had the worst time trying to register my little brothers video card on their site and I just dont like the look of anything they make.

The Haf, I dunno its getting to be dated, no dust filters, hard to replace fans... yata yata. What about the Storm Sniper? or like RJ pointed out, if your going extreme, a more high end case.

And seesh, what bank did you break into? I want some of the cash

Wow... I think you've got that backwards pal. Since coming here you've offered nothing but attitude and received sound advice. Have a nice life.

Here we go again. You want advice, yet every time a member gives his, you disagree.

Yes, the HAF is passe. It's a plastic design, god-aweful fans, no filter, pesky HDD holders, though it can hold a ton of components. But there are much better cases out there: Silverstones, Lian-Lis amongst others.

Did you put your hands on one? I did.

Sorry sanjo...but you did start off on the wrong foot. IF you are going to start a brag thread...w/ less than high end / "extreme" parts and try to call it "XtReME"....well you are not going to get much sympathy. Read some of the other beginner threads where they didn't come off as rash/abrasive/argumentative etc. If you want help...all you need to do is ask...politely.

You fought tooth and nail to back up your extreme claims on your original list and didn't take criticisms and too well. THEN you call us childish.

When what we are saying makes sense...please come back and stay a bit. Hell, I for one will welcome you with open arms then.

In the mean time, the HAF 932 is controversial peeps either love or hate it. It is NOT an extreme case...a kick arse one but not a $400 Lian LI work of art either....YMMV ;)

...AND that is my LAST contribution to this thread and indirectly to your education...time to move on.
