Been having the hardest time trying to figure out which is the best case for me. Looking to spend no more than $300. I will not be watercooling and a need an excellent air cooled case. Pretty much i want to know what is the best air cooled case for under $300. And NO to the antec lanboy air.

I would go with the Lian li, unless your going for the corsair 800d.
The 800d is the top-notch case by corsair.

The 800D is nice but from what I have read, it is horrible for air cooling.

Lian Li far superior cooling, craftsmanship and only 40$ extra over corsair 650d which looks pretty terrible.

Lian li easily. The Corsair Obsidian series are pretty garbage when it comes to air cooling. Maybe except for the 600t and the 650D, but even then, one 200 mm intake fan that isn't replaceable with anything else on the market is pretty annoying. Go with the tried and true Lian li with replaceable 120/140mm fans.
