Im lookin for a Mid-sized tower PC case which looks good and has good airflow. Im guessin NZXT Phantom 410 series or Cooler Master Storm Enforcer would be fine but do they have good airflow? Suggest me a few other cases meeting my criteria if possible (btw dont exaggerate too much or sumthin becuz im just 14)

The NZXT Phantom 410 is an absolute joy to work with, and it has fantastic airflow. I recently did a power-house build with it, and the fans pump air, and are almost inaudible. It also has some very nice cable management options. The little side-window is a nice addition. All that being said, it's pretty pricey, and you could probably get some full tower cases for the same price. If you like a more minimalistic look, I completely agree with Mr. Irish. The N600 has some great cable management and decent airflow, and is pretty friendly on the wallet for its feature set.

Coolermaster N600 - $60 after rebate or $80 full. There is also a windowed version with same airflow for $10 more.

I already saw this one but it doesnt look too attractive. Well how about the ones that I've mentioned do they have good airflow? Which one has better airflow?

Out of the two you mentioned, the NZXT is definitely a better case. The cable management on the Storm Enforcer is shotty at best, and cable management can be a very large factor with airflow. Also, the NZXT has a couple more fan options.

The Phantom 410 does have good airflow and cable management, although, for the price range, it does have a lot of plastic. The Storm Enforcer also has a lot of plastic, especially for the price, and the airflow doesn't seem to swell. With that price I would go with the H440 or the Phantom 630. They are really well designed, but one thing to mention is that the H440 doesn't have a CD drive slot available. You would have to mod the case in order to do that , but if you are only using the CD drive to install Windows I would put it on a USB or External HDD and install it that way.

Link to the cases I mentioned:http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-ali... - Phantom 630

thanks for the suggestion but ill be makin a gamin rig and for me an ODD is a must. Well, ill will surely checkout phantom 630. Once again thanks for helpin me out.
Edit:630 is quite a bang for the buck. Well it is a little above my 100$ price range but there are times you gotta spend more for better. Im guessin ill wait till the end of the year for other cases thatll be comin out cuz thats when ill start building this whole gamin rig thing. Incase, there are no good new cases ill go with 630. Thanks for the help
