Hi i m building a new gaming pc these are the specs:

i5 3570k + H80i Cpu Cooler
8gb Corsair vengeance 1600mhz
Corsair TX750M Psu
Gigabyte Z77X-D3H
MSI GTX 670 2gb twin frozer 4
120gb samsung 840 series ssd
320gb WD Sata hd

Which budget gaming case should I choose for maximum air flow & cooling!

Right now my favorite is the Corsair 300R Windowed - http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B008B6ONXA/ref=ox_sc...

My maximum budget is 70 GBP and I buy only from Amazon UK!!

What do you suggest me guys?

Thanks

The Corsair 300R is a fine case. There are other price alternatives, but you already chose a good one.

The HAF 912 plus is also a good case, it has a great airflow and it fits all your hardware just fine.

yes,for what you got the cases mentioned above are ok...however,if i were you,i would wait a bit to go with the budget at about 100 pounds and grab a full tower case...you never know in the future when you might need it

Hmm..Go all the way for 500R, dont look as 20$ extra. It has a gigantic 200mm side, Top Added Dust Filter, Removable HDD cages to support the longest Graphic card yet, Fan Speed controller, Amazing airflow with 3x120mm and 1x200mm, Looks great with 3 LED's (these are the features additional to what Corsair 400R has). Also, take the white version, looks amazing with white LED's !

Get the HAF 912, highly regarded as one of the best low budget case on the market. If you haven't purchased your parts yet, grab a CM Hyper 212 Evo instead of the H80i.

Not that it's better, think of it as a better value. The H80i, sure it performs better but how much is it? It's around $90 and the Hyper 212 Evo is around $30. You can use both and overclock to around the same, but the 212 Evo will be hotter by around 5 to maybe 10C. But considering the price it is still worth it. As you can see in my sig I have the Plus version, just a bit older than the Evo.

Thanks for clearing that up! I have a 212 EVO and looking to advance to H100i later, but seems like waiting for something like Swiftech H220 seems like a better alternative..H 100i doesnt look like a major advantage over h 80i

The H100i and the H80i are great water coolers but just too expensive. If you can, then wait for the Swiftech H220, it will destroy the H100i. The H100i and the H80i are VERY different coolers. The H100i is a dual 120mm slim radiator and the H80i is a thick 120mm radiator. Sure at stock speeds they may seem the same but as soon as you crank up voltages and start overclocking the H100i WILL pull ahead and cool better because it has MORE SURFACE AREA. The most important thing in cooling is the amount of surface area a cooler has. The more it has the more room it has to cool it down.
