    I also have a HAF 932 and love it. I don't think you can go wrong with either case if you're looking for good cooling. I bought the HAF 932 because I wanted more room to work in not to mention extra room for the longer video cards. It was definitely the easiest case I've ever worked with for installing and then wiring. You'll be more than happy with either the HAF 932 or the 1200.

    I highly recommend the HAF 932 as well. It's one of the nicest cases I've seen.
    I am looking at the Thermaltake S for another build though.

    I have my HAF 932 pretty packed right now but the cooling and wiring options are excellent.I am using mainly air, too chicken to try water cooling.

    I have both cases and it is a toss up but I would probably go with the HAF 932 also.

    The HAF 932 has just a wee bit more space for wire management but it is enough to make a difference.

    Which one do you think cools better? I like the idea that the HAF looks a lot more "stealth" without as many lights. I absolutely hate the lights on my 1200. I had a 900 last year and i individually removed every LED from each fan (4 LED's per fan). I want to do this with my new 1200 I just got last week that I am using now but it has friggin 7x4 = 28 leds I need to remove. Gah.

    I like how the inside of the 1200 is all black. I think the 1200 looks better overall, but as mentioned before if the HAF has better space for video cards that could be a big factor. I know that with ATI cards in a 1200 the 6pins are awefully close to the interior 120mm fan (if you installed that extra one like i did).

    It really is hard to say which one cools better. My computers are all configured different but all do an excellent job of cooling.

    I have a HAF a 1200 and a Cosmos 1000

    My personal favorite is the HAF. It is a little louder than the Cosmos but about the same as the 1200.

    I just installed a 295 in the HAF today and still had about 3 inches between it and the HDD cage so there is plenty of room inside.
