Goodday! So I'm looking for a nice looking gaming case with good build quality and some cool design (I really like LEDs and side windows). Also I want int to be preferably full tower since I don't even know what will I put inside of it in the future, maybe some water cooling system with SLIs. I'm a huge fan of CoolerMaster but any will do as long as it matches my requirements. Oh and also under 150 bucks :D  Thanks in advance.

Silverstone Raven RV03B-WA. $160 ($10 rebate)

One of the stringer cases you can get, the Raven series is known for rotating the motherboard 90, with the I/O ports coming out the top of the case. Plenty of water-cooling options, as its supports two 120mm's and a 240mm at stock (and comes with awesome radiator fans). With some modding you can turn the back 120mm mount into a 360mm.
LED's your going to have to add yourself, but arent that expensive.

Hmm looks kinda weird since motherboard is turned but I like the build quality. Although it not really looks like 160$ case, I mean there is NZXT Switch as example that offers all that and looks nice as well, but I'm looking for more options. Thanks though.

Any more suggestions?

No worries on v10 :)  I'm planning to set up water cooling. That seems like a nice case, although I'm not the huge fan of HAFs.

NZXT Switch looks awesome, although black seems to be fingerprint magnet. I will take white version then, thanks for the help :)

I'd just pony up another fifty for a HAFX. Best case ever.

The fractal design refine r4 goes for 80 dollars in some places and has ALOT of room on the inside for a smaller case, can support 120/140mm fans in about 6 spots or a radiator at the top, and is specified to fit up to 280mm cards. Good cable management too.

It doesnt have any flashy lights though, but it is an extremely slick case with great sound dampening.
