So, I am looking to purchase a new case, and I'd like to tap the knowledge of this awesome forum.

Here's what I am thinking:
  1. Needs to be UNDER $150
  2. Needs to be able to house an average WC Loop
  3. Needs to have great air cooling so that I can air cool until I am able to put together my WC Loop
  4. I will not be puting more than 2 video cards in the case
  5. I don't want an overly large/bulky case
  6. I'd like for it to be a well known/commonly modded case
  7. Side window comes stock.
I've been looking at the HAF 932, but I'm sure there are some others you all could recommend.

Thanks!

You're looking at mid-sized cases then. There's a lot...

-Corsair 600T ($159 itself on newegg. There's a seperate shipping and handling fee)
-NZXT Tempest EVO
-Antec 300
-Antec 900
-CM690 II Basic
-CM690 II Advanced
-HAF 922
-Silverstone Raven

Full tower cases

-Cosmos Pure
-Cosmos S
-Cosmos 1000
-HAF X
-Corsair 800D
-Corsair 700D
-NZXT Phantom

These are only a few out of a bunch of great cases out there. Check out lian-li too. Hope this helps!

But for a smaller case you could go with the 690-II Advanced
w/ 690-II Window
I've had my eye on that 690-II, but didn't realize you can buy the side panel with a window... I'll look in to that.

Think it'll fit a WC loop though? Maybe just a 240 rad?

I'll definitely keep my eye on the FS/FT section for cases, Thanks!

yes you can fit 2x 240s one on the top and one on the bottom by removed the hd bays on the 690ii.
you just have to find room to put hte pump/reservoir

You can put a Pump/Res combo in a single 5.25" drive bay with 2 x 240 RAD's and even another 120 RAD on the back of the case. Makes for a great setup in a small-er form factor.

Coolermaster Storm Sniper Black Edition

Well under your price point, better stock cooling than a HAF932 (I have tested both).

Support for a dual rad up top.

HardwareHeaven reviewed the 600T and it got a really nice rating.
