Hi all, I bet this has been covered, but I couldn't find it in a search. So please post a link to a thread if I missed it.

I'm looking for a mid sized ATX case with a space for a fan on the right panel and a cutaway behind the motherboard. The only case with such features that I can find is the Rosewill Blackhawk. It seems to be a fine case, but I'd like to have more than one option to choose from.

I know I could mod a case to have a place a fan on the right panel, but I'm not thrilled about getting a new case just to cut it up. Plus, I'm not sure I would do a great job or have the right tools for it.

I'd like to have a fan blow ambient air on the back side of my motherboard to decrease CPU and VRM temps. I know you can put fans on behind the motherboard without a cutaway on the right panel, but it seems like the airflow would be quite limited.

Thanks!
