What exactly are your goals? Do you prefer cooling performance or silence? Is cable management a priority? Do you like side windows?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... - storm scout. no usb 3.0 port on the front, slighly narrower in width than other cm cases.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... - haf 912 good case with decent features, typically the go to budget coolermaster case. very good case.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... haf 922 bigger version of the haf 912, roughly 2 inches taller and 2 inches longer, same width.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... - storm enforcer, my personal case. Have no complaints easy cable management, with front port usb 3.0

All the other ones except the storm enforcer do not have usb 3.0. not a big deal though. All of these cases share very similar design, and you really cannot go wrong with any of them.

here is a compare so you can see all the differences http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submi...|11-119-240^DM%2C11-119-196^DM%2C11-119-197^DM&bop=And&ActiveSearchResult=True&Type=1&Item=11-119-240

Why a micro ATX MoBo ?....not normally used except where someone wants portability and teeny case for LAN parties.

As for CM, the only case left on my build list is the HAF-X .... most of the ones that were on the list got knocked off because they still have no USB 3 front ports .... At your $100 price point, my two fav's are:

$114 Corsair Carbide Series 500R

$89 Antec Nine Hundred Two V3
