So, I'm looking for a case, and having a tough time making my decision. I have my preferred case, but if I can get the same features and save money, it allows me to invest elsewhere in my $1000 PC Build, such as in getting a slightly better graphics card.
Specifications that I'm specifically looking for (not by importance, but all important to me):
Overall dimensions(Specifically internal): going to be using a 212 Evo CPU cooler, must be able to fit.
Ventilation: Number of fans/Size of fans
PSU: Bottom mounted
Filters for air intakes
Front Mounted USB/Headset jacks
Preferably front mounted status buttons
Wire pass-thrus, preferably grommeted(I assume grommets keep the wires from being at risk of pinching/rubbing/shorting?)
My baseline case that I'm comparing everything against is:
Also, if you have another personal favorite that has all of the features I'm looking for and is in this price range, please submit it, I'd be happy to take a look.
And thanks ahead of time for any feedback on this, I'm just trying to get my first build off the ground.
