Hey guys I can't decide on what case to get for my build. In the future I will be doing a custom water cooling loop for my cpu (after I upgrade it) and maybe even my gpu. Ive been looking at this case (Silverstone Raven 3) <----- I really like this case because I like the side panel window and all of the 5.25 bays it offers (7). But can someone take a look at it and tell me if my psu is compatible with the case, because its mounted in a really unusual way. So I was wondering if there are any better cases for $150, any help will be appreciated. Plz keep in mind that I want a case with a side panel window, and big enough for custom watercooling.
Here are my components

Motherboard:MSI Z77A-G41 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

CPU: Intel I3 3220

Power Supply: Corsair 600m

GPU: GTX 560Ti

The Cooler Master HAF Series have some AWESOME cases that you can get a side window for - the HAF 912, 922, 932, & XM are all in your price range, you may want to look at those cause they are awesome, high quality cases for under 150$, and offer great cooling.
Also, btw, I'd do is drop your motherboard. It's a bit high end for the CPU you're using, I'd recommend using this instead, for it is cheaper & a much more logical purchase for a Core i3 -
