I'm trying to decide between them right now but am having a hard time of it. Antec supposidly has better air cooling, filters, and will save me alot of money not switching from red LED to blue. However, I feel like the 932 would have more ventalation, easy instiliation, along with quiter fans.

Mostly I'm need help deciding which will be better for me, thanks guys.

their both good cases, though a little pricey if you ask me, I have a hard time spending more then a 100 dollars on a case, 70 is more in my idea of a good range. I voted for the coolermaster because I think it will provide slightly better cooling, though they both would be a good case, just your preference, would you rather see more of the inside or have a big fan? big fan makes better cooling but you cant see as much of the inside, while the antec case probably (im guessing) wont be able to cool as well but will look cool, and will definetly cool anything well enough I doubt youll have overheating problems with either one. for a third option here is a case that I actually just ordered, that I think actually provides better cooling then either, though you cant see in the side panels. lol. It is a coolermaster as well, and far cheaper :D http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16811119137

Well if you want Blue LED's I would go for the Antec cause as you already said it would save you money. If you havent noticed the CoolerMaster have the inside plastic in Red. So I would go for the Antec if your planning on modding on Blue.

I have the Coolermaster Mystique 632S and modded it on Blue. Blue with Black looks nice :D , I've just put two 12" Blue CCFL neons at the back of the screen and at the back of the case, and my room is all Blue when I switch them on :huh:

And for the cooling, Like the_patriot09 said, you will have overheating problems (as I also have). Heat is the enemy of Gaming PC's. If you want to eliminate heat, buy a water cooling kit, and buy a ticket to Alaska :thumbsup:

Just "Get Cooler Master" isnt a suitable option for the user, explain why you would get that type of case. :thumbsup:

Sorry, I misread that one. I thought I saw a "but" in there.

Take a look at Corsair Obsidian 800D PC case. Lots of reviews. It will be my next case.
