Here are my system specs
i5 3570k processor, gtx 660 ti video card, Asus P8Z77 motherboard, 16 gb ram, and 680w thermaltake power supply

Here are the cases i found
Rosewill
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Galaxis Atlus HAS NO USB 3.0 PORT
http://www.amazon.com/Galaxis-Atlus-Tower-Computer-Case...

Antec
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Which one has the best cooling and has the most space???

Well, the Antec comes with 6 fans, 5x 120mm and 1x200mm so thats gonna cool really well. And for that, the $100 isnt bad.

The Rosewill comes with 5 fans - 4x120mm and 1x140mm

I would rule out the Galaxis, because, for that price you should get the HAF 912.


I'd probably go with the Antec, but before I decide... What's your budget?

The budget is up to 120
and I found this one

Hmm, I disagree.

No mount for top fan. There is a reason Top fans started showing up. Heat rises etc. I wouldn't get that raidmax.

Also, only 1 slot for USB 3 in the front, for that price you should be getting 2.

I went with http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... personally. Coolmaster are amazing, tried and true, and I like the look of it.

Also keep in mind that you'll be staring at that thing for some time, so looks should factor in, if all other things are equal.

After rebate it's 130 so very close, and Way better case

Also, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... is great.

Go to Newegg and type HAF in the search field.

Mmm based on what I see, you get no USB 3 ports in the front (which you will want either now or in the future. Why would you settle for having to snake around back to get that thing plugged in?)

And no 200mm fan, which may or may not be important, but if you can get a case for a wee bit more and has it, then why not?!

Plus, and this should have no effect on Your decision... I think it's ugly in the front :)

Like I said up top, the Rosewill comes with like 5 fans and 6 USB ports in the front (2 x 3.0 and 4 x 2.0. It looks like a solid case, but I've never used one so I don't know first hand.

You like the way it looks? If so, make sure the dimensions fit what you want, and do it :) 

Most people I've seen around here swear by Coolmasters.. but nothing to say that other cases aren't just as good or better!

I would check to see how many of those 3 USB ports are 3.0, but looks like it comes with a Lot of fans and they are placed all over the place. Could be good :)
