    Hey guys, which one do you think looks better? The price is pretty much the same and I am tied between these two cases:

    The blue one is the Antec 1200, not the 902 (the 902 only has 2 front fans), and they're not the same price; antec 902 is $160 and the Thermaltake element s is $120. I would go with the antec on the basis of looks but i would go with the thermaltake because of price. Also look into the Antec 900 which is essentially the same thing as the 902 but $50 less and has a tray for your ipod/camera and the Cooler Master 690 which i really like.

    I'd go with the antec because ive heard its quite a good case. Its supposed to have pretty good air flow too.

    Thermaltake is known for their look-a-like cases.... I was going to use the Element S for my upcoming build, but I decided not to... I don't like the 900 Two either because it's just a smaller 1200.... IMO get the P182, it looks amazing, and performs beautifully... And it's in the middle of those two price wise.... Also anyone saying, "GET TEH R3D ON!!! IT L00KS SOOOO COO!!!!!" is stupid... Performance=Win.. BLUE LIEGHTS!!! = Nubby....

    And the Antec P182 is listed here..

    ( US ) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129025&Tpk=P182


    The P182 is totally silent too! And if it's a window you want, just cut out the side, get some uchannel, and put in the acrylic.....

    I have the Antec 900 and it's great, if you don't mind the larger tower go for the Antec 1200, few things beat 6 fans out of the box.

    Also, PLENTY room for harddrives, video cards and heatsinks.

    I decided to go with HAF 932, and paint the front bezel green like on the pics at ibuypower....

    The HAF 932 is like 10$ more exp*nisve then the antec, but A LOT better. And sorry about posting the wrong case, the blue one is actually 1200, 900 2 is the same thing just a bit shorter

    If you have the money, go for the thermaltake, antec 902 as last choice.

    Just be sure to buy some dust filters..... The HAF doesn't come with any and it really is a dust magnet...
