Also you can remove the top fan and easily mount a 2 x 120mm radiator setup.

Of all of those selected my choice would be the Sniper (probably because I have one) but cases are very subjective choices ;)

Also the StormGuard is a regular PCI bracket, E-Sata Bracket is in mine.

I'm almost decided: Antec 1200 or DF-85 or HAF-X

They pretty much have the same price. Cable management and cooling is also nice in all of them. Help ?

Of those 3 I would go HAF-X as first choice, 1200 as second.

Why I chose the 1200 over the DF-85, is that if you decide to go water down the line, the 1200 can be modded easier than the DF-85. If water is never in the cards for you, then the DF-85 over the 1200.
