Looking for a case

Hey guys, I'm looking for a case, but having a hard time finding a case that everything I want in it. First of all, I want something tool-less and a couple of 5.25" bays. I also really want a window so I can check out my components. I want one with good airflow and room for expansion, so a full tower would be nice. I would also want it well constructed, has ample cable management room, and I am hoping for at least 2 USB 3.0 on the front. Any case like this?

Thank you for helping me out here.

Edit: Sorry, around $100. Cheaper would be nice, but no more than $140.

  1. budget?

    I would suggest Corsair Carbide 500R (about $100). Not a full tower but may as well be considering the size.

    I also like the Corsair Graphite 600t (though also is considered a mid tower). Price is about $160.
  2. A budget would help here, as well as the hardware your going to put in it.
    Any water-cooling aspirations at all?

    Normal MB, thinking 15-3570k, HD7950, and cool master 212 evo. Nothing too crazy. Might do water cooling later, so the option would be nice. First time building, so don't have all the decisions yet.
