Hey,
I'm looking for a good, full tower case for my build. I want it around 150 give or take with 120mm(pretty sure thats it) fans with no LEDs. I would like good airflow and good cable management. Thanks

I should preface my suggestion by noting that you don't need to spend that much for a good case. The NZXT Phantom 410 (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B006I2H084/?tag=pcpapi-20), winner out of 15 mid-range cases Tom's compared (http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/solo-ii-400r-buc-ra...), is only $85 right now and should be absolutely fine for that build.

That said, one of my personal favorite cases, the NZXT 630, is also within that range, and would be an excellent choice: http://us.ncix.com/products/?usaffiliateid=1000031504&s...

I'd take the NZXT Switch 810. All fans that came with it are even bigger than you asked for ( 140mm ).

I heard the phantom is a closed case and that wasn't good. And i think the fans were supposed to be 120mm because of room.(thats what i was told)

Closed case? Well, it has sides... The 630 has superb airflow, as do the 810 and 410 to a slightly lesser degree.

They all also support large fans and radiators, so space isn't an issue in that regard.

Alright. I always like the case but was told by someone is wasn't good, but this definately cleared it up. Thanks!

I have no idea why they would think that. The 630 has essentially no bad elements, other than perhaps price (that is, you can get a cheaper case which will still work fine, though the 630 would outperform it).

Glad I was able to help. Happy gaming!
