$160 limit and must not exceed a maximum height of 22.9".

Its time to get rid of my crappy Apevia case that I have had for the past 2 years. I want some cable management because I am looking at grabbing a 955BE to overclock some. I figure with that and my GTX470 I might start having some heat in the case.

Below are the ones that I am currently looking at in order:

Number 1: NZXT Phantom( I am leaning VERY heavy on the white model)

Number 2: Corsair 600T

Number 3: HAF 932

Number 4: CM Storm Sniper

Coming from a HAF 932 to an 800D, since 800D isn't on the list, it has to be the 932. It's huge and you can fit plenty of stuff in it, the cooling is good and you can fit a 360 radiator up top with no trouble.

Well after looking at the four cases I am ruling out the HAF and Storm cases. I want something that is more enclosed. So I am trying to decide either Phantom or the 600T.

I say 600T looks way nicer than the Phantom so go with the 600T.
