Which is the better case:


RAIDMAX ATX-404WU Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case ?                                                




Cooler Master Elite 430 - Mid Tower Computer Case with All-Black Interior and Windowed Side Panel ?




Cooler Master HAF 912 - Mid Tower Computer Case with High Airflow, Supporting up to Six 120mm Fans and USB 3.0 ?


The Raidmax has already come with a faulty case fan.

the best case between the 3 is the HAF 912, with the elite 430 being second. I have used both mutiple times, and had excellent success with both of them. Good cooling, good case design. My preference is the 912, but the 430 is nothing to be scoffed at. Its much larger then the 430, but it is a breeze to work on, and it keeps everything cool.


With that said, fans are extremely cheap and easy to replace.

Indeed, I would just replace the fan on the raidmax.

Hey faulty fans happen but they are cheap enough
