I come to you with a small delimma on my hands, I am faced at buying a new PC Case for my system - This system was the first time I've built one, and its gone quite well up until this point, not to go into details but the case I'm currently using now has NO fans (3 yearold hand me down) and I decided instead of spending $80 (Australian) on new fans I would invest in a new case altogether.
Although exciting whenever it comes to purchasing new PC parts, the doom and gloom soon sets in - Which is the best, should I get this, should I get that etc (The same philosophy can be applied to whenever we spend money ).
BUT to the point - I BELIEVE I've narrowed it down to two cases; the Coolermaster HAF 932 or the ATCS 840. Having read EVERY review to date on both machines (yes, over 8 hours of solid reading across the board no jokes) I am back where I began, as one review put:
Currently my computer specs are:
CPU: E8400 with Noctua NH-U12P Heatsink Cooler
Mobo: P5Q Pro
GPU: 8800GTX - Soon to be GTX285/295
PSU: Corsair HX620w
Sound: Audigy 2 ZS
HDD: 1x 1TB, 1x 300GB Samsung 7200rpm 32mb Cache HDD
I come to you with my hands open - if one of you were currently in the market for a new Gaming/Performance case which would you choose? I LOVE the design/exterior of the HAF 932 but with no dust filters it worries me, on the OTHER hand the ATCS 840 has higher temperatures etc.
Please refer to a recent Coolermaster Sniper review that shows graphs comparing a number of up-to-date cases [basically shows the HAF 932 with better temperature ALL round]:
Also note worthy is another comment from another review concerning the ATCS 840:
