I was considering that case long and hard, but there's just too much mesh everywhere, it seems like it will be loud and dust-aplenty.

My vote goes to CM 690 II Advanced. It come with the three fans most needed. has options for adding more in top and on side if and when you need it.

Outside of your budget is the CM Storm Sniper but worth a look. has 3 x 200mm Fans and 1 x 140mm fan

i got that case for a custumor once and i was really impressed with what you get for that kind of money, and no its not loud either [fans on low]
even if you find it to loud, with a few new silent fans this case is still better and cheaper then most others. your cpu fan and/or graphicscard will be louder then these case fans

cant say about the dust [didnt had it long in my possesion] but it does have dust filters.

its sold out at newegg but newegg isnt the only shop you know.

edit: lol i quoted the wrong post [mean this about the xigmatek utgard]

The HAF 912 was an initial possibility but I'd have to spend $100 total including case fans, and then I'd have to paint it still. Doesn't seem worth it when the PC-K62 has included fans and paint job, plus all the other features.

My concern for the PC-K62 is that the front 140mm fan isn't going to pull in enough cool air to balance the rest of the venting fans.But i might replace the rear fan with another blue led fan

My concern with teh CM690II is that I have to buy more fans before it is "ready" ... thus increasing the costs.
I cant speak for the CM690 II.I only have the orignal 690 it came with two fans that i replaced.The front with a Blue LED yateloon and the rear with a 47cfm yateloon.Cost me $8 + shipping for the two yateloons from petra's i think it was.

Now the PC-K62 comes with 4 fans. 3x Blue LED 140mm and 1x120mm black exhaust fan.And i havent found the need to replace them so far.
