I completely agree, but that puts the case in a different price bracket negating one of the reasons its such an great case. At this point i think its best for me to wait for a enthoo pro v2 with a proper dust filter and fans....and while they are at it remove the 5.25 bays lol.

So, essentially a Pro M Acrylic?

Sadly the front intake is still poorly designed on that case requiring modifications to keep dust out. It also still has a 5.25 bay for some reason.

i lived in a dusty house when i had my pro and it was pretty bad...i had thought someone posted a picture of the pro that came with the screen mesh like the primo has for the back fans...either way the pro is an amazing case even at 150 it would be decent for the money...so 3 dollars in foam isnt that bad...the 200mm fan isnt all that loud it just doesnt move nearly the air two 140s does...i think people seem to forget how loud hand used to be....like my old masscool 2800rpm fans...they were louder than stock r9 290 fan at 100 percent lol

I figured the dust would be pretty bad just looking at the pictures of the intakes, i also have a cat so ya. I guess its nzxt h440 or fractal define r5 for me at this point.

Phanteks its a really odd bird to me, they clearly know how to do proper dust filters as shown on the evolv atx but then you look at the dust filters on the P400 which are literally laughable.

So......in order to keep dust out, you are also fine with keeping air out.....both of those cases are notoriously bad in terms of airflow. The R5 is understandable, as it is built for silence, and airflow oriented variations of the case are available. That isn't the case with the H440, which also doesn't come close to the Fractal or Phanteks in build quality.

To each their own.

Just copied some images and added the text.

What would you suggest for blocking that heat?

Not trying to start a beef here man, just trying to find the case that suits me best. Let me add i think the rumors about the H440 running hot are a bit exaggerated. Sure if you are running an AIO in an H440 you will probably be seeing higher temps than normal, but i think a proper air cooler would run great in an H440 as would in an R5.

No beef here. It just seems you are looking for the absolute perfect case, but airflow seems to be an afterthought. It is also a shame that the average consumer does not have the ability to actually go to a store to actually have a hands on with the case to look at the issues, compare build quality, see what may be an entirely different issue for them, etc. Choosing cases has become a ridiculously difficult task these days.

Having done extensive testing on the R5, H440 and all of the Phanteks line (along with a lot of other cases), I can assure you that the H440's airflow issues are not exaggerated in the least. It doesn't matter if you are running air, liquid or a CLC - it simply doesn't flow correctly. The R5 is a bit better, is also built like a tank and has great finishing work, but it is, and is marketed as a case built for silence, not airflow. The Enthoo Pro is better than either of them, even with the 200mm (which is only noisy at the upper end of it's speed rating).

BTW - I was being completely serious about the Pro M Acrylic. It matches up with all of the requirements you are looking for, and is priced ridiculously low for what it is.
