IMO, the Xclio would be better than the HAF 912. But if you would compare it to the HAF 922, I would say they were rather equal in performance.

The xclio would be easier to build because it's a full tower ands has more space, right?

the size of the case isnt everything. quality over quantity made a big difference for me...

No, the size of the case does not matter for cooling and space. Wire management is needed for any case.

Unless you are running a server, you don't need all the space for hard drives.
