A fractal R4 would be a nice case to look at, it even has room up top to fit a 240 rad AIO/CLC like an h100i or H220 from swiftech.

If you can swing an extra $10 it's probably a nice upgrade to your current case. A very quiet and well built case IMHO. I would also get the white one! thumb.gif

Fractal Cases

If you really want a sub $100 case a Fractal midi for $98 bucks would be the next best things, not really sound insulated like the R4 but very good for water and air cooling.

EDIT: All fractal cases mentioned have dust filters as an FYI.

The Corsair 400R and 500R are both excellent, and being Corsair products they are designed with H80 and H100 compatibility in mind:

http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Carbide-Series-Computer-CC-9011011-WW/dp/B0055Q7BR4/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1361945521&sr=8-3&keywords=corsair+carbide+500r

http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Carbide-Series-Computer-CC-9011012-WW/dp/B005E983JW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1361945521&sr=8-1&keywords=corsair+carbide+500r

I have the 500R with a H100 exhausting out of the top but you can just as easily have a H80 exhausting out the rear. Plenty of room inside, great for cable management, and the removable hard drive trays make installing and upgrading storage a breeze. Plenty of options for additional cooling as well. I opted not to use the side intake fan, but instead added one on the bottom for intake which has a removable dust filter and the two at the top for the H100.
