need help selecting a new full tower case with certain features

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
OK I have a small perdicament I like my computer insides very clean and yesterday I opened up my computer case to clean the dust and it was rediculous and its less then a year old. Any way

I'm looking for a full tower case with. Air filter fans And a big clear side window for, my future project

What I'm putting in it is 3 1 TB hdd 2 bluray burners and Asus sabertooth 990fx motherboard with the 8 core bulldozer 16 gb ram the corsair h80 (unless anyone here know any better pre built water cooler beside h100. Too big) and 2radeon HD 6950 2gb along with a wifi card and 1250 watt psu

The reason I want a big window is because I'm but UV cold cathodes inside and paint specific non cuductive part UV greeen and purple


Also trying not to spend over 200 for the case!!!!

Thank you all so much you will be my heros if you find this.

HAF 932 Advanced, and get the full glass-pane side panel from CoolerMaster's web store. Fits every need and it's a gorgeous case! thumb.gif

 

For the record, regardless of case quality, there will always be dust. If you haven't cleaned your rig in over a year then of course there will be some ridiculous dust amounts mellowsmiley.gif. I clean my rig at least once every two weeks.

Silverstone Raven 3?? Positive air pressure would help keep the system cleaner from dust.

OK let me reiterate I need a big window and the silverstone isn't big enough also I would like the filter property because its so much easier to clean. Right now I have a xclio a380 and to access the front fant and areas is a pain in the rear.

Here's something:

 

http://cmstore.coolermaster-usa.com/product_info.php?cPath=18_25&products_id=712

 

Model 621020840-GP
Application HAF X / 932

 

HAF-X-Left-Side-panel-big.jpg

 

There's another windowed side panel that doesn't have the fan cutout like the one above, if I find it I'll link it here.

 

EDIT - OKAY! I found it biggrin.gif : http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=29449
