Looking for a case upgrade

Hello,

I'm looking to upgrade my case as it's pretty old now and I'd like to get a better one. Currently I'm using Fractal Design Core 3300 and while it's quite spacious, cable management space is pretty small, also my CoolerMaster MasterLiquid Lite 240 is a little bit too small in height and there's a small gap between the top of the case and the radiator on either sides of it, so there's a lot of dust collecting inside.

Currently inside:
3x 3.5" HDD
1x SSD 2.5"
3 slot GTX 1070 AMP Extreme (using 2 slots but it's wide for 3 slots)
4790k (doesn't really matter)
5.25" BD Burner which I'd like to keep inside
CoolerMaster MasterLiquid Lite 240 - mounted on the top
PCI-E 1x to M.2 Intel 8260 WiFi and BT Card
4x RAM sticks
SuperFlower Golden Green 600W (80+ Gold fully modular)

I'm looking for case with better airflow and more space inside, especially for cable management. Those nice silicone covers for cable management holes would be really great to have in a new case.
I've seen Define R6 but it's got no 5.25" space and I noticed a lot of cases have no 5.25" space nowadays.
What would be the best one to switch to for around 150$?

Thank you, it's so hidden I didn't realise that, as the shop online where I looked for a case didn't have a picture with a 5.25" bay. I suppose that will be my choice unless somebody has a better proposal
