Looking for the best all around case that can specifically encase large coolers (Mugen-2). Budget is say $50-$60 max. TIA

Good suggestions guys. I think im probably going to go with the HAF 912. I like the Elite 430 but with the wait for the $10 rebate I can just go with the 912 for $5 more upfront from amazon. I would probably go with the 430 if amazon still had them instock though.

You really can't go wrong with a HAF 912 for under $50. I can't think of a better case in that price range. The CM 430 elite is close, but the HAF is definitely better on a functional level.

Can't say much about the looks though.

Yup I ordered the HAF 912 today! Planning to paint either just the inside or the whole thing just for the hell of it.

Yea, I have to go pick mine up next week. I'm thinking about painting the inside, but I don't want to have to do all that sanding and priming and whatnot. I'm just gonna save my money and wait for the Arc Midi to come out. When the price is reasonable I'll ditch the HAF
