    AZZA Solano 1000 ATX Full Tower

    COOLER MASTER HAF 922 ATX Mid Tower

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119197





    which is a better case for the money, I have heard good things about the HAF 922, but I have never heard of AZZA much less the "Solano 1000" before. Please advise?

    are fan filters that important? HAF 922 has them AZZA does not.

    I realise the HAF 922 is a Mid case and the AZZA is a full, they both work for my mobo and GC's. is there any advantage to a full case besides size?

    HAF 922 is prettier.
    Otherwise filters are important, because you don't want a vacuum cleaner, 922 is big enough to accommodate any build, 922 has gone through reviews proving its value,..
    I'd take HAF 922.

    Bigger case means more space for your hands when putting together, or watercooling,...
    Smaller case like HAF means better air cooling since all fans are blowing across your hardware,..

    That Azza looks like an Antec 900 rip off and although the 900 is good it doesn't compare to the HAF 922, the HAF 922 looks a lot better too

    I wouldn't write off the Azza, it looks like a much better deal. Comes with a lot of fans.

    I'm also a sucker for black painted interiors..

    it comes from a genric manufacture and it is probably going to be terrible build quality, lots of plastic and no cable management it would like buying a thermal take case

    Reviews on the Solano aren't that bad, so idk.

    Saving $20 over the HAF 922 is worth taking a bit of a risk IMO. I think the Azza looks better actually, the HAFs both look pretty weird.
