Currently I'm running my sig rig with a Hyper 212+ cooling my CPU and an Antec Kuhler 620 cooling my GTX 460. Somehow I fit the Hyper 212+ with a single fan on my CPU and the Kuhler 620 with two fans as a rear exhaust behind it. It's not cutting it and is less than ideal. I've had my eye on the RV03 with the grey trim because it's a great air cooled case with interesting styling I like, the Phantom and Phantom 410 because they've got interesting styling and has room for water cooling, and the Kublai KL04 because I think it's a beautiful case with some interesting potential if I don't use the HDD cage that comes with it.

What I'm looking for is something that will run cool and fairly quiet, but also gives me room to do water cooling in the future if I want to, but that also doesn't cost more than $130. I'd love to get some input on the cases I'm looking at, particularly from people who own them, and to get some good alternate options that I may not have considered. Also, if you know of any cases coming out in the next month or two that would be great, I'm willing to wait for it.

My last option is to buy a rotary tool, some Krylon Fusion, self-etching primer, and some other paints and hope to find someone with a drill press or other suitable drill in Seattle and mod the heck out of my Rosewill Challenger.
