Hi. I am looking for a good functional hi-tower case with a good airflow and good amount of space for cables etc. Currently I have Antec 900, however I am planning on getting corsair h100i and I feel my case is a little on the cramp side. So I'm looking for a cse with a good airflow and fuctionality > looks.

Thanks in advance :)

Easy. HAF X if air flow > aesthetics. I got the exact same case and it fits my NH-D14 with ease so the H100 will fit without a hitch as well.

Yeah I recommend the HAF X also, it's great. I wish I'd paid a bit more and got that instead of my 932 Advanced.

Haf-X is great but I love my case as well the NZXT Phantom.

COOLER MASTER HAF 932 Advanced is also a good option

Yup. I'm in love with the Corsair offerings. Some are a little over priced, but man, they look good to me. My 650D was SO easy to build in.

+1 for the HAF series case. The HAF 932 is a beautiful case but it barely fit in my cupboard (uncommonly large for a midtower case) So take into consideraion that the HAF X, a full tower, is a monster of a case and you won't appreciate the size of it until you see it in front of your face.

HAF 932 is a full tower, HAF X and 932 are virtually the same size

The one I have is the midtower version, guessing its the 922 then. But yea they all look the same.

Both Recommendations for HAF X and 932 are Solid.

"This case is ugly" comments are subjective. :P I love the industrial look of the HAF series. I have a HAF-932 advanced myself, and I love it. I was going to get the HAF-X but they're almost the same, and HAF-X costs more. Size, they are virtually the same. Buy some dust-filters.

Antec 900 might look good here but when you see it in real life, the haf definitely looks better imo. I guess if you were to compare the HAF would be something like a mustang while the 900 would be a ricer car like the eclipse/genesis etc.

Which shouldn't be for a long while, I've had my HAF 932 for over three years. And dont see myself changing the case for a long while yet.
