Mid-tower case for first build

I am assembling my first build, but i need a specific case, mid-tower size

i'm trying to find one that DOESN'T have a rear mounted vent, as i don't want to irradiate my wall, and there isn't really another place to put the tower.

i have a:
i7 4770k
ASUS z87 pro
MSI R7950 twin frozr (261 x 111 x 38mm)
1 dvd drive

can you recommend a case and accompanying fans? also a good fan controller?
Thank you!

I own the Storm Scout II and I don't think that's what he's after because the primary case fan blows out the back. OP could move the rear-mounted fan to blow out the top and drop in fans on the side and another one up top to compensate, though.

OP, why are you opposed to buying a computer tower with a rear-mounted fan? What's wrong with hitting the wall with heat?

that is nice, though sadly it does have a rear mounted vent from what i could see. maybe i'll just put a wooden board or something over the wall

i don't really want to irradiate and ruin the wall behind it. Thats pretty much the only reason. i might just suck it up and protect the wall with some wood or something

its just air coming out of the pc pal.

i know, but i don't imagine its good for the wall. Wouldn't the paint peel/shrivel/mutate, and something nasty or other happen to the plaster?

honestly it will not do anything to your wall pal i have had mine against my wall for 4 years and it is just as if it hadnt been there. the air is only slight and even if it was a gail force it would not damage your wall

i meant more along the heat levels. I'm wanting to game on high settings, and not exactly for a few minutes at a time

i know i game for about 8 hours pal the air is cooler coming out of my pc than the air going in........

If you think hot air from your computer is going to damage your wall, you are nuts.
