Best airflow case <$150

Ok, ive been looking for a case recently. I just took a peek at my friends pc he just built and now i know how bad cable management can be. Here are my categories

1: Good overall airflow
2: Minimum space for a dual 120mm rad at the top, better if capable of dual 140
3: Plenty of space for cable management
4: Less than $150
5: Preferably black with optional blue lighting (i will light it myself either way)

So far i have accumulate these cases http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147107 , http://www.amazon.com/NZXT-Phantom-Tower-Gaming-Case/dp/B006I2H084/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1357314591&sr=8-4&keywords=nzxt+phantom

I would greatly appreciate if you recommended other cases to me

  1. 500r, 600t, and 650d seem like nice choices (all from corsair). I personally have an 800D with blue cathodes and it looks very nice (black and blue color scheme ftw)
    I think I read some where that the 810 is the only case that supports a dual 140 in the top not sure though

    Any specific form factor of the case?

    Atleast a midtower. Doesnt matter if it is a fulltower or not

    the phantom 410 will hold a 280mm rad at the top (2x140 mm fans), i have one. you looking to put a kraken in or something? great case for airflow, and it's a beauty if you ask me!

    I like the 410 because its classic phantom style, has a window, and a removable HDD cage allowing for maybe 15-16" cards. The 280 rad capability just put it at the top of my list
  10. glad to hear it! didn't answer my question about the Rad xD. you going for a custom loop or a kraken?

    Most likely the Kraken. I might do a custom when i actually have a job :P
  12. coolio. post pics when you are done! the kraken is a nice looking piece of kit!
