I was just about to go with the 932 for the looks alone (not the right reason but meh). Was there a glaring fault with the haf x? or was it just difficult to put together?
sorry my responce took so long, and i will ahve to say now forgive me for my bad typing and wording, its $4:50AM and i havnt slept for almost 30 houts.. idk why im awake... i have a problem...
but with that said, ontyo your question
The HAF X is an awesome case no doubt about it! it absolutly massive, imagine a huge case, then imagine a bigger case, then imagine the HAF X dwarfing that case. you really cant grasp how big it is untill you see how it barley fits under your desk. with the wheels on its 24" tall!
i am a little dissapointed with the air flow of the supposed High Air Flow branding. it has several large fans but they dont move an impresive amount of air. my HAF X has 12 fans in it, which makes it pretty good, but the 4 fans it comes with arent impressive. you will need more fans.
the side window is awesome, and i really like a lot more than the window on the HAF 932
my ONLY gripe with this case is how you mount 120mm fans and a radiator in the top, the brackets they use are not how i would have desigened and it kinda seems like they just through something together... i cant explain it, you would just have to see it in person to udnerstand what i am talkinmg about. but if you arent going to be using this case for water cooling, then this isant a problem for you.
the case is extremely heavy, 38 pounds EMPTY, id bet my computer weighs about 55 - 60 pounds! pretty crazy. the 800D weighs more though.
the wire manament and spacve behind the mother board trey are exceptional, i cant imagine a case having better wire manament, except maybe the 800D
really, if you are considering either one of these cases, you cant go wrong. but the HAF X can support XL ATX mother boards ( someone correct me because i know thats now what its called ), and i dont belive the 800D does. but unless you are looking to put 4 massive video cards in this case, that shouldnt be a considering factor. really it just comes down to what look you prefer, the sleek sexy look of the 800D or the barrel of a M1A2 Abrams take pointed right at you military look of the HAF X.
