I have the Cooler Master Storm Stryker and there is super easy access to clean the front fans.
Cases are very subjective though, so its hard to recommend one in particular.

yeah! i can see how easy to clean the front fan with this case, just what i'm looking for. hey socialassassin, when cleaning the front fan by pulling it out, does it pull out the HD too ? anyway thx for the reply !! :D 

anyone else can suggest other casing similar to this (easy front fan cleaning) please do tell, before i purchase CMStryker this week.

If you don't need front-panel USB 3.0 ports, this is really easy to access the front fan and clean, great airflow,too. It is the case I own/use:
Coolermaster Storm Sniper
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
I just checked Amazon.com/UK, they don't have it.
Don't know where you live, but worth a quick search of local sellers; it frequently goes on sale and/or can be found for a little less money.

You just remove the front dust filters and the fan is right there, no need to even remove it.

Your welcome. I switched from a CM Cosmos to the Sniper because of air flow and maintenance; found it had more interior room than the full tower Cosmos and was easier to work with.
Good luck.
