Okay, so I HAD a case, but I returned it because it was an ugly color and doesn't match my set up (black/blue). I have about $120 dollars left to spare, and I need a good case, CPU cooler and extra fans if needed to fit in that that price point. I'd like to have some extra space inside for r/CableManagement, but I'm not sure if this build falls in the mid tower or full range. That would make a huge difference in price and styles available.
Thanks! Opinions needed! Fire away!

Have a look at the NZXT Phantom series, lots of color options and cable management.

I've looked at the NZXT Phantom line. I like it. But a full size case eats up the rest of my budget, and I'll have no cash for a CPU cooler and replacement strong, quieter fans if needed. I literally don't have another dollar to put into this build.

Look at the corsair carbide 400r. Its not a full tower, so it isnt huge, but has lots of room for multiple video cards and drives. Has lots of room for added fans, and has a nice simple sleek look. And personally, I love the white led fans http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168.... 99 bucks. And unless you are planning on heavy overclocking, you wont need to add extra fans or an aftermarket cooler.
If thats too much, then the 300r has a 4egg rating on newegg, only 69 bucks.

Looking at it now. I like what I see. It's showing the price as 79.99 for me, but ten bucks more isn't gonna kill me.

Thanks. Staying open to other options as well.
