NZXT = Like to do there own thing, weird fan sizes (200mm fans not really 200mm, a little off), lots of expansion space.
CaseLab = Experimental, massive, tons of room for growth.
Thermaltake = Generic cases, not to much, weird designs.

Those are the ones I came up with off the top of my head... Feel free to add to this if you see anything that needs to be edited.
Rosewill= LOTS of airflow, Very solid construction, quite cheap, lots of variety
Bitfenix= Lots of stealth, Good airflow, solid contruction
Fractal Design Define R4 = One of the best Mid-tower cases you can buy
Silverstone = Superior quality, Good airflow, quiet, expensive.

Aluminium cases conduct heat? Nonsense. Unless your heatsink is the case itself it doesn't matter
Besides 200mm fans are garbage. And also CM cases have lots of airflow because they basically haven't got a filter in front of the 200mm fans

I've had generally a better experience with aluminum compared to steel, that may be because of other factors. But I still believe it to be true.

Not really, to get a quality M-ATX board is just as much as the same quality ATX. And the cases for M-atx are often more expensive for a decent one. And dont even start on mini-ITX lol

I don't understand, how could you possibly be this disconnected from resources? Are companies afraid to ship to the Middle East?
