I'm deciding on which case I want to buy and I can't really decide which one is good.

I'm looking for a case under $100 (but the cheaper the better, $100 is my absolute maximum).

I generally care for air flow, wire management, and dust filtration more than noise.

I was recommended these three cases, but please feel free to tell me any other case under $100 that has great air flow, cable management, and preferably good looking.

Only the Zalman has USB 3.0 ... The easy choice is the Corsair 500R

$95 after $20 MIR ..... 87% of peeps on newegg give it 4 eggs or better. IMO, it toasts those 3 in your three categories ....aesthetics, cooling and cable management

I have the 500R and can say it does indeed have good cooling, is quiet, and easy to work with. It's rather large tho for "mid-tower."

USB 3 is a must these days. Don't go without it.
