I am getting a new case in a couple weeks, on a $140 budget. I can go up to $210 max. I need a full tower, as I plan to watercool with a triple 120 MM rad. I would like it to have a little bit of blue, but not needed. My currnet options are:
Bitfenix Shinobi XL with custom blue mesh (its a good deal, but I loved this case before I noticed the price)
Cooler Master Haf X
Fractal design Define R3 XL
Danger Den Extended water box plus Over budget, but if you think its worth it.
MM Plaetu 18

Suggestions welcome... especialy from Mountaion Mods.

^^This, the 800d or that Mountain Mods if you can go over budget the water cooling guide for noobs has a list of recommended cases that are all good. If you want cheaper 360mm rad support and blue then you could get the HAF 932 blue edition or just change the fans of whatever case you get with blue fans.
