    Due to my OCD, I had to choose a Corsair case (to match the cooler):

    Honestly, any case that has a 120MM case fan placement will fit your CPU cooler.

    Okaay thanks! :)
    If you could tell me any other good cases since I'll be buying from a local store, I'll be more than happy :) ..
  3. List of cases I would recommend (lowest price to highest):

    There's quite a lot out there, but it all depends on what store you are buying from.
  4. There are plenty of choices - mid towers are smaller and take up less space, but full towers have a lot of room inside the case which makes cabling easier/better, and your case will cool better with less effort. If you chip in another $10-20 for a full tower, it'll be worth it IMHO.

    The HAF 922 and 932 are great places to start. Other good cases include the Raven RV02 and NZXT Phantom.

    NZXT Phantom probably is one of the "best bangs for you buck" cases out there (a full tower with impressive cable management and a smexy look, not to mention 4 fans included; an all-in-one package for just around $120 to $130:D). It's a great buy.
  6. I was going to buy the Phantom when I was upgrading (had it in my Newegg cart) when I saw the Raven, and the nerd in me fell in love with the case design. It actually was a very efficient cooling solution too, and handled 3x470s on air. Now I've switched to WC but there's still a lot of space inside.
  7. Haf 912 or Antec 300 Cases are popular.
  8. Cooler Master Storm Scout. Has 3 120mm fans with room to expand. Has a vented side window too. The inside of the case is completely painted black, unlike HAF 912, 922, 932 which are bare metal. $79 after rebate on newegg
  9. nothing beats a NXZT phantom for $120/-.It is compared with other high priced heavyweights like HAFX and all.it has 7 fan ports,LC support and all modern features.
  10. Okay, I know you specified under 120$, but I had to pitch this one forward. It's what I bought myself last week.
    Cooler Master HAF 932

    Very roomy (can fit 3 top of the line and top of the size chart GPUs with ease), fits just about any type of motherboard though you'd want to go for ATX in this baby.

    Comes with 4 fans (3 of which are huge!)
    1x Front 230mm fan (which shiny red led for that "I'm pure evil" look)
    1x Top 230mm fan
    1x side 230mm fan
    1x rear 140mm fan

    Supports future water cooling, if you choose to go that path.
    Has no-tools-required HDD slots, meaning you won't have to fidget around with screws just to install or extract your HDDs (simple click lock mechanism).

    Has a pretty window to look in on your internals and extranally it looks like the military recycles the stealth bomber into your PC case.

    HAF stands for "High air flow" and it seems to provide just that.

    Goes for 139$, which is an extra 19$ over budget but totally worth it in my opinion.
