Intel Core i5 3470 3.2ghz, 4-core, 6mb, HD2500, (lga1155)

Well of those cases the NZXT Source 210 (The Elite version has USB 3.0 with a 20 Pin Header, so if your motherboard does not support USB 3.0, buy the non-elite version)

Basically because it holds more fans than the others, 2 x 120 mm fans in the front to intake cool air or the side 120 mm to intake air to the GPU area and has a good cable management (You don't care about that, but a good cable management can improve cooling by tucking the cables behind the motherboard tray to have a clean looking case) and is well constructed.

The CM Elite 431 also seems good, it has that external X-Dock but the cooling is a little worse than the others because of the side window, and lacks of cable management but still is a very good case.
