Best mid tower case for air cooling?

Hello Tom's,

I'm building a gaming PC and the last thing I need to decide on is the case.

I only have 2 drives to put in it, 1 5.25" optical drive and a 2.5" ssd, which is why I chose to go with a mid tower over a full tower.

However I'm putting a powerful 780 ti that will be overclocked so I want very good airflow (especially to the GPU).The cases I've been looking at have been:

Corsair 600t

Corsair Air 540

Corsair 500r

Full towers I was previously looking at:

CM Storm Trooper (I like its looks and features but think the space is wasted with what I'll put in)

CM Haf X (I love the cooling and the looks are decent but it's too big for my current needs, but would be nice for upgrading I guess)

So just suggest what you think would be the best case for me, money is not a concern, just air cooling.

Thank you for your help!

    Storm trooper is an excellent case

    check youtube reviews and this will help you decide on your case , there are so many out there , mid and full towers
    at the end of the day i guess its personal preference in what you think looks good and will do the job
  3. Thanks for your replies.

    I had actually just glanced at the 450d and it looked pretty appealing, I'll look more into it.

    Thank you for your suggestion mickypheonix. I've only looked at like 1 youtube review I will certainly look up more now.

    Btw I love the look of the trooper but it's just too big for my needs :(.
