I am about to buy and build for the first time. I am happy with all my choices I wanted good quality parts that fit in my price range which I feel I have accomplished.

But my question is about my choice of case. I have heard some complaints the about lack of dust filters on the cool master HAF XM and have been looking at other options around the same $125 USA price range or lower...

I have been looking at this XClio Touch 787 ATX Full Tower http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... but My concern is will my hyper 212 cooler fit in it with all those fans on the side door? Also I don't know much about the companies reputation and the reviews I found were not very informative. The case looks awesome in the video I watched and I wouldn't have to add any extra fans which would save me some money.

Anyway here is the build I am looking at let me know what you think about the case question. I want a durable case with great airflow that everything fits in. My old case is so loud that I really doubt noise will be an issue anything would be an improvement.
