Shinobi (Normal, Window) Bad cooling, bad HDD setup, no side fan option
K63 Wasn't $100 when it came out, no side fan option
K62 Wasn't $100 when it came out, no side fan option
K60 (Normal, Window) No painted interior, bad cable management, no side fan option
K59 (Normal, Window) No painted interior, bad cable management
K58 (Normal, Window) Same as 59
K57 (Normal, Window) Ugly transformers case, same as 59
Tempest (Normal, EVO) HDD bays aren't sideways, bad cable management, EVO is over $100
Beta EVO Bad cable management, too small to fit an H100 without customization
Source 210 (Normal, Elite) Bad HDD setup, nowhere to put H100

These aren't even close...

Also, most of these cases are too small to fit an H100 without customization. Please step up that "level of pwn".
The list is about cases which can fit a H100, not about which case is better or not. Don't try to put words into my mouth.

Allow me to redo the list then.

HAF 912 (Basic, +, Advanced) Top is too low to fit H100
HAF 922 (Normal, Red) This one works
690 II (Normal, Basic, +, Advanced, + NVIDIA, Advanced NVIDIA) This one works
Shinobi (Normal, Window) Top is too low to fit H100
K63 Top is too low to fit H100
K62 Top is too low to fit H100
K60 (Normal, Window) See K62
K59 (Normal, Window) See K62
K58 (Normal, Window) See K62
K57 (Normal, Window) See K62
Tempest (Normal, EVO) Top is too low to fit H100
Beta EVO See Tempest
Source 210 (Normal, Elite) May fit but motherboard placement looks too high

It's important to note that you could put the fans on the outside, but that doesn't count.

So basically only two cases come close on this without customization.

Edit: Some of these weren't under $100 when they came out and some are over $100. I'm sure this case will drop in price too.

The Lancool cases have TWO compartments for top fans/rad, sorta like the 600T, mount the fans on top compartment, mount H100 in bottom compartment.

I say the Lancool PC-K62/63 is still the king of the under $100 segment.

Am I the only one who HATES the look of the fans on side windows?

Yeah you are accurate! I would choose HAF 922 over C-400R. 922 is one of the best air flow cases I owned before upgraded HAF X case.
