not bad, but my loyalty is to the HAF's still. how did this case stand up to them in terms of cooling performance?

Sorry, that's a huge oversight, not having the pic in there. A picture taken from Antec's site has been added now to the first page, and I've asked Gabe to take some photos of it.

Here's what it looks like

Just a heads up, Page 4 has 2 shots of the case from a head on and a side profile. It's a hard sell for fans of mid-tower cases but with such a spacious design it's really a dream to work in. If you guys have any specifics you'd like to see I can take those and either post them to the article or host them in a folder in my neo gallery.

The HAF is cool for what it is, but personally the 193 runs low RPM and has a silent killer appeal to it since you don't see 30 fans all over and the panels mask things quite well.

well if you like a simplistic and rather plain design, then sure, this is a great case, but for people with performance, its a nice addition to have the case look mean as well.

and as far as i know, the 2 250mm fans on the HAFs are really quiet

Minimalistic and sleek has been the goal of the Performance One series. The HAF is a great case but it's more likely to butt heads with 900 / 1200 series which it dominates. If anything simply because the 900 feels like a nightmare to work in at times with cage placement and cabling nightmares.

In the end the preference of course is on the user, some may want power and sleekness. Others may want a glowing case with a fan bus, variable control CCFL lighting and more. I would personally prefer to finish modding my SX if I plan to go that route it's more rewarding overall.

BTW they are 230mm fans, not 250mm. The HAF 932 has 3 of them, not two.

You know you want to. It's the paint that kills me, I want to make sure I get it all cut and drilled the first time instead of having to come in later ruining the finish. :/ I figure if I'm going to rebuild the interior I might as well go with exotic cooling so now I've got parts catalogs for Danger Den and such which I haven't settled on. x_x

Basically just like the 180 and 182, with a few design changes.

I'm still using my 180 today and I love it.

apologies, i didnt bother re-reading, so my memory was hazy. heh, 3 is even better. if i recall correctly, it was a front, side and top set of intakes right?
