I am finalizing two HTPC builds, both use Micro ATX mobos. I am wanting a case that has great cooling, and can fit long graphic cards. I have basically now narrowed it down to these two cases.

Thermaltake V21

Corsair Carbide Air 240

Thoughts on these? Any folks out there with either of these cases care to weigh in?

P.S. Yes, I also have read the [H] review on the Corsair Air 240 as well (http://www.hardocp.com/article/2015...s_air_240_compact_pc_case_review#.VdSsAGfouJA). I am just wanting to hear actual users thoughts on the cases.

Corsair Carbide Air 240 is a great case I would highly recommend it unless you want to use water cooling then I would say go with the Fractal Node 804

I bought the V21 for a few reasons.
1. can flip the case on it side so the Motherboard is in the vertical orientation.
2. the rails that can hold fans and/or radiators albeit 240 or 280 only are so easy to install and move.
3. the big 200mm fan in front.
4. the ability to move the on/reset /usb to different sides.
5. Fan filters are huge and easy to clean.
