I'm looking for a case to use in my i5-2500K/GTX 560 Ti build. The most important things I want to have in the case are good cooling and airflow. Other important things are silence and good cable management. Also it should be good without any modding and the price should be around 80€.

I was thinking about Fractal Design Arc Midi because it seems to have good cooling/airflow and it probably isn't too noisy. Also it looks good and is only 79€.

So should I get Fractal Design Arc Midi or something else?

I'd look into Lian-Li cases. From the simple design you showed, you might be amazed at the craftsmanship of the lian Li cases and the air flow is awesome.

(Not sure of best UK site to use seeing how I am in the states)

There's Lian Li PC-A05NB available for 84€ in my local pc store. Do you recommend that case over the Arc Midi?

I've had a Lian Li case for over 5 years. Its durable and its just not made out of stuff that last a long time. I just looked at the Fractal case and since airflow is more important to you...that might be your better bet. Its basically a very ventilated case. Keeping it clean with dust might be difficult. Look at the review below. If you can see both in person then just go see which one suits your needs best. Buying a case online without seeing it is the hardest part. Trying to visually picture how everything will fir in there and if its going to be enough room for you.

Here's the review and basically better pics.

Here another idea. I personally find it ugly but best airflow in you price segment

Thanks. I think I'll get the Arc Midi since it should have better airflow than the Lian Li case and HAF 922 is 50€ more expensive than the other two so it's too expensive.

The first case you chose kind of grew on me. I like it as I personally like less flashy stuff and the air flow looked really efficient. Sometimes I forget I don't use stuff that creates a lot of heat.
