Hi guys, I'm building my first gaming pc and got stuck when choosing a case. So I'm looking for some recommendations and ideas.

Around or under 120 usd. Can go up to 150 if really worth the extra.

Must have:
- Mid tower ATX case
- Side panel window
- Toolless 3.5/5.25 inch drive mounting
- Front panel: Two USB 3.0 + audio/mic
- Top: Capable to mount 240 mm radiator or 2*120 mm fan
- Interior: Good cable management (can route wires to the back of the mobo)
- Good airflow

Optional but good to have
- Removable HDD cage
- Front panel: Additional USB 2.0/3.0

Cases I'm considering
Rosewill BLACKHAWK Gaming ATX Mid Tower
NZXT Phantom 410
COOLER MASTER Storm Enforcer

These three are just what came to mind. I'm definitely open to other options.
Any ideas/suggestions are welcome.

Thanks for helping

Cooler Master.
Built to keep it cool when the pressure mounts.

Best solution

The coolermaster enforcer does a great job. The airflow with this case is phenominal.
