    Default HAF X vs THOR V2

    I have been sold on getting the haf x for a while now, but then the THOR V2 arrived. Now the HafX retails for $50 more than the rosewill competitor, but i was google shopping and i found a sirte that has it for $142. If i went with the THOR, compared to the HAF, i would find:

    PROS:
    Fan Controller
    More cable management abilities
    Better aesthetics IMO

    CONS:
    No side panel window
    No wheels

    These are the major things. Both have USB 3, which is something i really want, but I definitely like the look of the thor better.
    Hopefully the thor will get reviewed, but lemme know your input.

    HAF X will have better inflow and Rosewill is not known for the best quality. IMO, stick with the HAF X

    You can always add a window, wheels and extra fans to the THOR V2. To be very honest with you, I think the THOR V2 looks better than the HAF X

    Default Re: HAF X vs THOR V2

    After seeing the ThorV2, I really like it also. The HAF X is a good case but I think the Thor V2 has allot of potential with very little mods.
    The Window panel is very easy to add. As far as airflow the HAF X case does the job good. But like ANY case you buy if you can set your fans up correctly you can get pretty good airflow.

    What are you trying to accomplish with this build? I guess that will help determine if this case is good for you.

    If I didn't already buy a Corsair 700D Case I would get the ThorV2 and try it out. It would have been cheaper also.

    Default Re: HAF X vs THOR V2

    Although the Thor is a nice looking case, the hotswapable bay hardware is better on the HAF and the hinged panel is nicer. By the time he mods it and puts more fans twill end up costing more than the HAF X.

    I agree it does look better, and i was thinking of doing the simple mods too. Although i do like the aerocool, thanks to biff.

    Mostly, i am just trying to get my first build off the ground with this one, and try to future proof it as much as possible. All the hardware i am thinking of doing is in my specs.
