Re: what to replace a HAF-X with?
Ok necro'ing my own thread. I'm looking again at potentially replacing my HAF-X still. Was thinking maybe one of the EVGA cases but that was just a random though. Anyway the reason is I just built a new L shaped corner desk for my office and I want to get the PC off the floor and into the back corner or similar on the desk. The HAF with the PSU on the bottom is always sucking dust into that filter. I know that will be improved getting it up on the desk but I wonder if it will be too big on the desk. The only requirements really are good airflow (ACX3.0 cooled 1070) and room for a Noctua NH-D14 cooler which as you probably know is massive and tall. Room for modest water cooling in the future would be nice though in case I ever go that route. Front panel audio is no longer a must because I could just route my mic to the rear input on the motherboard, my headphones now use a USB DAC, but I do need at least 3-4 USB ports.
