I'm going to be building a new build within the next half year and I'm looking for a case to use in the build. I'm looking for a case in the range of sub $200 that is a full tower.

Specs for the other parts of the build are as follows:

Mobo - Gigabyte Z87X-OC
PSU - Seasonic Platinum 1Kw
CPU - i7 4770k
GPU- GTX 770 or HD 9970
CPU Cooler - Corsair H100i or XSPC Rasa 750 RS360 Universal CPU / Triple Radiator Water Cooling Kit w/ Updated Pump and Free Kill Coil!
GPU Cooler - Antec Kuhler 920 w/ mount
Ram - 2 x 8 Gb Corsair Vengeance
Ram Cooling - Kingston Hyper-X
SSD - 2 x Samsung 840 Pro 256 Gb
HDD - 3 Tb Seagate Barracuda

Some of the cases already under consideration include the NZXT Phantom, Phantom 630, Xigmatek Elysium, Azza Hurrican 2000, and Azza Solano 1000.

Important features:
- Radiator Support
- Good Airflow
- Value for Price
- Less Plastic
- Full Tower
- Non-Red Color Scheme(Not So Important)

Any other suggestions for components are welcome as well.

I appreciate any help thumb.gif

The Seasonic 1000 watts PSU is a bit overkill and its also has a 50mv ripple on the 12v rail which today is not great so even if you want a 1000 watts PSU the Seasonic Platinum is not worth it

Yep, I'll be looking around at other PSUs, I'll definitely send you a PM or something when I'm close to buying. That should be around Christmastime since I'm waiting on the next gen of AMD cards to compare
