Help with purchase of gaming chasis

Building a new pc, not sure what case to get for it. It needs to be able to house an ATX and be a full tower case.
The processor is going to be overclocked so basically im looking for a very well cooled case.
I was thinking of:

Also any ideas on what fans/cooling system to get for the case would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance

    Anyway i would go with the HAF 932 out of those ones but why do you want a full tower if you're getting an atx motherboard?
  5. Basically I'm going to overclock the cpu etc quite alot so it needs a lot of room for airflow etc. And budget for case 150. This will be my first build, yes.
    And the specs will be CPU: Intel Core i7 3770K 3.50GHz @ 4.50GHz Ivybridge CPU
    - Motherboard: Asus P8Z77-V Intel Z77 (Socket 1155) DDR3 Motherboard
    - RAM: TeamGroup Elite 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C11 1600MHz Dual Channel
    etc
  6. And the evga 4gb gtx 670
  7. What CPU cooler will you be using? custom water loop? Air? Closed loop water?
  8. I would go with the NZXT phantom here: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CA-038-NX&groupid=2362&catid=35&subcat= which will suit your needs well i think, or you could spend a bit more on the full tower version of it here: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CA-022-NX&groupid=2362&catid=35&subcat=
