I had previously decided to purchase a Antec 302 case, but I can't get any dealers who can get me anything Antec. I need an alternative for the Antec 302 and it can't be an Antec, which is as good as the 302, if not better and for a *similar price*.

Any suggestions?

FYI, this is my hardware that needs to fit into the cabinet

Intel 3930k
Asus p9x79 Pro
Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo
Corsair TX750 v2
GTX 680

To add to my post, the alternative I was thinking about was the Corsair 400r carbide series, but that's expensive($99) vs the $69 for Antec 302.

cooler master HAF 912 & elite 431
bit fenix outlaw & shinobi
corsair carbide 300R
Fractal Design Core 3000
zalman Z9+
NZXT Tempest 210

just to name the many solid cases out there in that price range. personally, i would get the BitFenix Shinobi. cases are mostly subjective so looks play a big factor in getting a case. Most cases have similar fan lay outs so no need to worry about one case's claim as being "better" at cooling since one or two after market fans can change the entire airflow of a case unless you don't want to purchase additional fans or have none on hand.

i actually own both. the corsair 400R and the antec 300. try the corsair 300R, fairly similar to the 302

i personally don't care for the large opening on the top of the case but that is what fan filters (or sound dampening foam) is for

If you can afford it then the 400r if not then the 300r is also good.
