Hi, I'm looking for a new case that's good at being dust proof because where I just moved to they are doing alot of construction and it's really dusty I currently have the Cooler Master HAF 912 . Also I'd like for it to have good cable managment, simple, smaller, and would like to have a window but not necesarry. I plan on having a GTX 660 Ti and a corsair H80i. I have an ASRock Extreme4 Motherboard so it would also have to fit those. Sofar I have in mind the "Fractal Design Define R4" but I'd like to see some other options that are similar. Thanks. :)

well, the cool air has to get in and the hot air has to get out somewhere, so it won't really be dust proof. you might do better with just cleaning out your fans and using a can of compressed air more often than usual

although a good case definitely doesnt hurt

and, judging by the parts i dont think you would want to afford it, but an asus sabertooth comes with dust caps for all its slots (amongst other things). that might help with that

Yes, but I'm looking for a case, not a new motherboard. What I mean by dust proof is that I'd like for the case to have dust filters on all the fan vents and for them to be easily removable so I can clean them fast and easy.

your fractal case is a very good case. I would really just buy some dust covers for all of your vents it makes a world of a difference. also the haf is nice, it is what i have. I helped the dust by moving to a 200mm fan up front and also a 200mm fan on top. the slower rotational speed helps keep dust out.
i have a 2 and an autistic 6 year old for children and they are a constant deconstruction zone in my house and the dust they carry in from outside and there constant running has made it an issue to keep the dust down.

so big fans and dust covers is what i rec.

would moving it to a different part of the house/living area help? like my bedroom is a dust storm, but the basement ironically is much less dusty

other than that, i agree with the others, fractal r4 i think has dust covers over several if not all of its fans
