The 3rd one is what I'd choose

The first two are a bit smaller than what I was looking at, esp. with a decent sized graphics card. The third is decent, but I like newer models better and the cable management leaves a lot to be desired. These might lack on cooling as well. Thanks though!

i recommend you take a look at the lian li pc-9f (might not be good for water though). i bought one 3 months ago and absolutely love it.

at the time, the cases i was looking at were the fd r3, corsair 600t, 700d and several lian li cases. the r3 wasn't being sold by any us distributor and i had read that there were issues with their build quality so i crossed it off my list. now that newegg carries them, i think they offer great value at their price point.

i also looked at several corsair cases at my local microcenter store. if you have a chance to see these cases in person, i highly recommend that you do. when i saw the corsairs in person, they looked pretty fugly to me (please don't be offended if you think they are beautiful cases). the 700d was too big/heavy for my particular application (my comp sits on my desk right next to me). the 600t was too plastic-y and looked funky, the lines of the cases ruined by the latches to open the side panels.

so i took a chance and bought the pc-9f sight unseen as everyone on ocn was singing the praises of lian li cases. now i'm in the choir singing the chorus. you will not be disappointed. cool, quiet and the brushed aluminum is so beautiful. i often find myself stroking my computer case - pure sex.

Why H70? NH-D14 or Silver Arrow outperform it by miles......

and don't get Fractal, seems like theres a few build quality issues......

What about the complaints of the fans not being interchangeable? I doubt I will care about the 200mm that is proprietary, but I will care about the 120mm as I have Gentle Typhoons I would like to install in place of the stock fans.

And if I want to do water cooling does it work well with this case?

I can't even choose on your poll, there's a few good cases on there. If you don't mind doors on the front, the Fractal Design cases are pretty badass. The Lian Li K62 has more features for any case at its price point. The phantom is the only case by NZXT I've ever liked.

Don't ever buy an Antec, unless it's a P182. Everything else they make is garbage.
