Need help choosing aluminum windowed full tower case with good ventilation and space!

post #1 of 58
Thread Starter 
Hello....Since I am buying $1,000-$1,500 worth of computer parts and I need good cooling, quiet fans and good cable management.

I'm looking for:
A. A full tower case
B. Aluminum is used in most parts of the case
C. A huge window with a fan or two
D. Lots of space for good wire management.
E. The max my budget I can spend for a case is $130-$150.

I have made up my mind on a few cases that I want.
From the one I want the most in order.

1. Ultra Aluminus (Price and Functionality.)

2. Gigabyte 3d Auora (I really like this case it's badass it's one of my top choices.)

3. Aspire MX Pleasure (Looks good for what it has.)

4. NZXT Nemesis (It looks like good airflow.)

5. Antec Nine Hundred (Looks like good ventilation but too cramped.

6. Thermaltake Armor (But I don't want it alot.

The Thermaltake Armor is a good option. Don't know much about it though.

Except that is the steel version. The aluminum version is silver.

Only thing with the Gigabyte is, you're probably going to want to replace all the fans because I heard they don't push that much air. But thats just what heard so...
