Really unsure about the case. Currently upgrading from an ATX mid tower (Nikao Dragonfire). Also unsure how loud all the default fans are that come with the case, would be interested in taking all the fans out and upgrading them to quieter fans if necessary, or if the fan control from my mobo is good enough.
ok?, what are you planning on doing with computer?
how much over-clock are you going to do? ivey doesnt run hot until you super-clock it and there are better platforms to do that with. ivey can easily hold a 4.5/4.7 clock with a highend air cooler of H100. unless your photoshoping 500mb raw files, folding, or have 25 applications open at one time, you are jumping to false conclusions.

all under $150, good air cases, can be fitted with H100 (anything less than H100 and you aren't getting the benefit for the dollar).
all can take the noctua nh-d14 easily.
