Haf 922 or IN WIN Maelstrom


Aug 22, 2011
I'm torn between the two. When it comes down to looks I'm just going to remove the stupid handles on the Maelstrom so that's not a problem.

I know the HAF 922 is a huge mid size case but the WIN is a a little bigger. I'm going to want to fit a GTX 580 (maybe 2) and Frio OCK (getting just the regular Frio for now) in the future.

Cooling and airflow is also what's bothering me.
The HAF specs:
Dimensions(L x W x H)
22.20" x 10.00" x 19.70"
1 x 120mm rear fan
1 x 200mm Red LED front fan
1 x 200mm top fan
1 x 120mm or 200mm(would cost me an extra $18) side fan

The Maelstrom
Dimensions(L x W x H)
23.66" x 8.86" x 21.65"
1 x 120mm front fan
1 x 120mm Rear fan
1 x 120mm top fan
1 x 220mm LED Side Fan with switch or 6x 120mm

They are both are the same price on newegg. I know the Maelstrom has 20 bucks shipping while the HAF is free but after buying the 200mm fan for the HAF its not that big of a difference...

I appreciate any and all help. Thanks! =)
