Hi guys i need new case for my computer .

My build will be

I3-2100
H61M-VS
Hd Sapphire 6850
Xfx Pro Core 650 W
4Gb G.Skill 1600
Hdd Seagate 500Gb
Dvd Writter

I want this case to be ATX who knows if ill upgrade to a bigger mobo or add another GPU. And for sure it should be cool cuz most of the year here is incredibly HOT.

Also it would be cool if it is a good looking one :) 

I dont know what to choose right now but some thoughts are : (if i dont find anyone :) 

CM 430 Elite (budget)
Asgard II (budget)
Striker X GT Red Devil
Nzxt Phantom 410 (not to much sure about this)
Haf 912
Cm 690

Thank you all in advance )

corsair 600t se white, recently built in this case and its soooo sweet and the largest "mid" tower case ever, it made my df-86 look small.

is also a dream to biuld in with amazing case management and a very clinical style

im not sure now

HAF 912 Plus 68Euro

VS

Corsair Carbide 500R 95 Euro ..

Edit : I found another 2 cases that are my decision's

Elite 430 ; NXZT 210 Elite ;Ante3c Three Hundred ; Thermaltake V4

Whic of these are better . 210 is 5 euro cheaper than 430 .

The rest of the money went to the mobo :)

Depending on your budget I would highly recommend the Thermaltake Level 10 GT Snow Edition. Amazing look, nice cable management built into the case, nice and large, multi-color LED, quick swap HD bays.

The case I used before I swapped to the Level 10 GT was the Coolermaster HAF 932 which was also an excellent case, I would recommend that one also however I dont think anything beats the Level 10 GT as far as unique look!

Y ur right lvl 10 gt is 258 Euro . I will never buy such an expensive case. Better to get Mega PC hardware than that .

All the suggestions on the table are fair and within your budget. What we can't know is your personal preferences on appearance of the case. Which one looks best to you?

@Malmental thats a hard choice :D 

@rugger
They both look good to me thats the problem !If 1 of them was cheaper i would buy that but they have the same price .

Also there is silencio 550
I like the external sata dock but that front door seems weird.Also it is called silenico but it just lowers down the noise by 1~2 Db acording to reviews.

I like simple, functional, and quiet. In that list of four I would go for the Carbide 400R.

To make it even more confusing for you, I'll throw a couple of other options out there. I really like Fractal Define R3 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... or the Antec P280 for a few dollars more. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

For a little less, I like the Bitfenix Outlaw: http://www.anandtech.com/show/5224/bitfenix-outlaw-when...
