So what case will be the best for air cooling. It will need to be big enough to fit an NH-d14 as well as the side panel fans.

Those are all great choices. I'm more inclined to the Switch 810 and the 500R. The Switch 810 is perfect if you ever decide to do a custom loop, and the Carbide is better for an air cooled setup.

You can see what a finished build with the Switch 810 looks like here: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/switch-810-cosmos-i...

I'm inclined to the corsair 500r as well, only problem i have is that i've heard that its build quality is not so good and if you remove the top hard drive bay, it becomes unstable.

I think you should go for the Antec Nine Hundred Two Mid-Tower Gaming case. Its got lots of room, plenty of cable management holes, and beautiful cooling with a bunch of fans onboard and room for more. Plus, that 200mm exhaust fan on the top is quite nice. I myself own an Antec Nine Hundred (900) and its just fine, but youl want that extra room available in the 902.
