Most enthusiast style cases have windows, the list is too long to even attempt.

I always recommend the RV02/FT02 from Silverstone. Best air cooling cases you can get. Not so great if you want to go water cooled in the future. They are different because the window is on the right side and not the left. This could be a good or bad thing.

The Corsair 650D is another top choice for me.

right well

for the pure enthusiast, i would say the new silverstone TJ-11

i personally own a silverstone raven 02 - while im impressed with the case, ihave rappidly increased my storage space, to 10TB, and looking to mirror that.

So my next step will be the TJ-11

i also watercool my raven 02, its quite tight in there now.

on the up side, motherboard is rotated 90degrees on the raven 02 and the TJ11, meaning the heat vents out the toop and since heat rises, its the smart option.

although i have just seen this aswell, not my cup of tea but if your a HAF fan, this might be up your street.

In my opinion the case should be simple looking. It will draw the attention to the window and show off your parts. If the case is all crazy and loud then people wont look in the window.

Kind of like a good painting. A good painting doesn't need a crazy looking frame.

I like my FT02 for that reason. It shows off my pretty Rampage motherboard and black chrome heat sink.

-anywhere under £70
-any noise level as that dont bother me with surround sound
-any cable management because i can buy clips to sort that
-i dont and wont need watercooling so that doesnt matter wether it has it or not
-any look as long as its black or black and silver , and it needs to have a side window
-cooling - id like 1 or more fans on the front , and on the back , any other (example - top) would be a bunus though

so pretty much anything similar to the antec 600 , also is there a version of the antec 600 which is fully black instead of black with a silver trim ?
