I want a case for my budget workstation

FX 8350
M5A97 R2.0
Hyper 212 EVO
XMS3 4x4 16Gb 1600MHz CL9
S12ii 520W
HD5750 (Already Own it)

Both cost the same in my country(India).
These two seem to offer the best bang for buck.
I will be running the 8350 @ stock till I buy a better cooler.

300r - $75~$80
K62 - $80

I'd really appreciate your suggestions.

Both case are very cool, but I suggest Corsair Carbide 300R with window side panel.
Window panel on Lancool is better but price is little higher.

I suggest to look CORSAIR Vengeance C70 for 130$. Three color options...
Excellent Gaming Case...

I think C70 is case far best airflow opportunities on market at this moment.
I'm fan on Obsidian 650D and I can tell you...CORSAIR KNOW TO MAKE CASE,
same like Lian-Li but I like CORSAIR design more.

Like I mentioned, they both are priced similarly. The 300r windowed ver. is not available.
I'm leaning towards k62, because its larger and seems to have better stock airflow!.

The C70 is totally out of budget

I'm a 300R owner.
In my opionion Corsair cases have good quality build.

I don't know about the PC-K62 and the Lancool other cases.
According to the Tech Power Up review the PC-K62 build quality isn't the best.

So my vote goes to the 300R.

Cons according to the Tech Power Up review:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
•External build quality not comparable to Metal Boned or Lian-Li cases
•Feels a bit fragile - cracked window & broken clip to prove it

The Lancool Dragonlord K62 is a certainly not good for your nerves. Starting out, you may be really disappointed after unpacking the case. The plastic feels quite weak in many areas and there are some places which may not withstand the cruelty of the postman. This is certainly where the frustration starts. While these are the most obvious downfalls, there are a few less annoying ones, like the missing 3.5 inch bay or the short audio cable. But, no matter how disappointed you will be with the exterior build quality, considering the Lian Li roots of the chassis, it really shines with inner values. Nay, let me rephrase that, it rocks big time!
This is the first chassis which manages to apply screw-less systems to every area of the case. From the hard drives - which is something we have gotten used to from Lian Li, to the external drive bays. Then Lancool tops things off with metal locks for the expansion slots, while adding an eighth slot for good measure and if that does not get your PC enthusiast heart beating faster - the Dragonlord K62 even does away with screws for the power supply. Last, but not least it sprinkles some dust filters here and some cable management features into the mix.
So why is the Lancool Dragonlord K62 bad for your nerves? First it gets you frustrated, then it manages to push your blood pressure through the roof with crazy, but surprisingly functional features. Lancool should take the interior of the K62, slap an aluminum front on it, call it Metal Boned K9 and maybe drop the price by a few Euros or Dollars. The result would be a chassis that would almost certainly edge dangerously close to the perfect 10. But, as it stands now this ultimate potential stumbles across a lot of plastic and some construction choices which may mean that you end up getting a damaged case or damaging it yourself way too easily.
