    Default What case?

    im thinking of this one:
    CM HAF 932

    but I saw the antec 1200 and was wondering if anyone had justification to spending $30 more on the 1200

    That's pretty vague. What do you plan to do with the case?

    Well, frankly speaking, I'd go with the Antec 1200 just so I could avoid Cooler Master's crappy sleeve bearing 230mm fans. With the Antec you readily replace every fan in the case with those of better quality, and have a ****load of choices. With CM, you're limited to like, 3 manufacturers.

    Caseking.de has far superior photos than the stock crap Newegg slings.
    1200
    HAF 932

    Any plans to water cool?

    I'll tell you what, I have the Thermaltake Xaser VI Super Tower that we reviewed back in March 2009. Read the review if you want the case, pay for shipping and it's yours. It even has a removable motherboard tray, this ones all black out side with blue fans and mesh side panels. I have a UPS account through my shop so shipping to you is not a problem.

    You can't beat that, SW. Seriously, you'd be a fool to pass up that deal.

    I need the room it's been sitting here in the box ever since Jeremy shipped it back to me after the review. It's a really nice case, if you take your time you can have a nice build when your finished.

    I'll be honest with you, it's going to cost close to $50 to ship it, UPS charges be $10.50 just to come here to pick it up, plus I believe it weighs around 37-40lbs but your getting a well built case for $50 with 140mm fans.

    25.00 and you pay the shipping from Calif and I will send you a perfectly good 1200. Not using it now with the Lian Li.


    100.00 plus shipping and I send you the SilverStone FT02.
