Anyone got a recommendation for a case that offers good airflow and enough room inside for a larger CPU fan? (ie, I just picked up the Scythe Mugen 2 CPU fan and it won't fit in my current case - but my current case also has no front fan to draw cool air so I'm not terribly disappointed that I may have to replace it :)  )

Some ones I had been considering are :

ANTEC Dark Fleet DF-35 Mid-Tower
ANTEC Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower
Thermaltake V9 VJ40001W2Z
Thermaltake Armor MX VH8000BWS

All are mid cases, which is what I was considering, or would it be foolish not to go with a full sized case? Any thoughts / advice are welcome :)

For a mid tower, take a look at the CoolerMaster Storm Sniper or the CoolerMaster HAF 922.. Your cooler will easily fit into one of those.. Personnely I'll recommend the Sniper over the 922..

I like the Antec 900 cases (I own three - modded for cable management), but by today's standards, there are better cases out there. I don't like the ThermalTake cases. They seem gimmicky to me.

If I were starting over, I'd choose one of the CoolerMaster cases.

I have the antec 902 and it has great cooling along with the sexy all black interior. It also has dust filters on the front and side intake fans to help keep the dust under control.
