Hello.

Am looking at a new X99 system, motherboard is most likely gonna be the Asus Rampage V Extreme, which is E-ATX, am also gonna go for a Corsair H110 cooler. Anyway, which case would fit these? I know my current 800D probably will, but i would like something a bit smaller in size maybe, even though i don't really have any problems with the 800D, beside that i would like some USB3 ports on it, i know there is an upgrade-kit, but getting one doesn't seem easy these days.

Anyway i've looked at the 750D, and i like the case, specially the dust-filters, but i've heard the air-flow from the front is really bad, which i don't really like, but there seems to be a new front cover coming some day? Else i've looked at the Fractal R5, but getting the Rampage V Extreme inside it, might cause some problems since it supports up to regular ATX boards only.

What would you recommend?

Well around the same pricepoint as the 750D would be nice, but can go higher if the case is worth it.

About the Cooler Master HAF X, not sure if i like how it looks, not that i matters to much, either way thanks for the suggestion.

The case should have some smart way of routing the cables, i do love the cable management on the 800D.

If you don't want to get the Enthoo Primo, then get the Enthoo Luxe.

Unless you're opposed to cube cases, I recommend the Corsair Air 540. Airflow is awesome and it's easy to keep the build clean with the dual chamber design.

That Corsair 540 does look really nice, liked the Cube design. Thanks for the suggestions so far.

My last case was the Air 540. Loved it. If I were to ditch my CaseLabs S8 I would go back to the Air 540. Easy cable management. Big window, great flow (air or water).

I went from a reversed M8 to the Air 540!

One day if I go back to something other than my Caselabs it will be into a Air 540 unless another dual compartment cubes comes that is better.

OP, The Air 540 should be a strong candidate in your case search. I ran mine with x79 and H105 in push with great temps
