I own the HAF 912 advanced, it's marvelous actually for airflow and design. You can also consider Cooler master Storm Enforcer it got the approved award from Tom's and has a nice design besides it has the internal USB 3.0 header for your motherboard.

what about the corsair 400r?

check out pcpartpicker.com.

Not sure about availability outside of the US, but a few of my favorite cases that I've had go below 100 USD:

nexus prominent 5, 9, r cases (silenced, nice black finish, more than decent fans included.

fractal makes some great cases as well.

For fancier options, phantom 410, bitfenix shinobi, corsair carbide and graphite series are all great.

I ended up cutting my hand for the first time in about 20 builds on a haf 912 last month, not my favorite case by far, preferred the phantom 410 to it honestly.

Corsair 400R would be the best in terms of Airflow, Quality of stock fans, Corsair Liquid coolers compatibility as well as looks and cable management, 10 case fan locations(with 140mm fan mounts at 6 points which is awesome). I'd recommend 500R if you can go for it, 1 added 200mm side fan, detachable HDD cages to support the longest cards yet, fan controller, Top added dust filter(could be very handy for CPU cooler intakes),3 gorgeous looking white LED fans and the case is just epic quiet. I cant really notice sound of any fan other than the PSU's. The side 200mm fan itself is worth the extra 20$ over 400R
