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.

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.

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.

Corsair Vengeance C70. $110

Technically a mid-tower, but its a fairly big mid-tower.

Coolermaster HAF-XM. $120 ($10 rebate)

Again, a very big "mid" tower.

Antec Eleven Hundred. $100

Would throw on two fans to go at the front though.
