We liked Corsair's Crystal 280X Micro-ATX casewhen we tested the black version with RGB fans last year. And I personally liked it so much that I bought one and built a new AMD Ryzen 2000 system in it, and it's been serving me well ever since. Newegg has the white model of this case, without RGB fans, on sale for $79.99 after a $15 mail-in rebate. That's $40 off the list price and -- RGB absence aside, which many will see as a positive -- it's quite the case for a penny under $95.

So long as you're down for the more compact Micro-ATX form factor (which means you'll lose some expansion card slots), there's a lot to like about the 280X. Its dual-chambered design means you can hide your power supply and drives behind the motherboard for a very clean build, and our testing showed it to be very quiet, thanks in part to its trio of tempered-glass panels. I can personally attest to this as I write this with the case just a couple of feet to the right of me on my desk.
The filtration system is also very good, although thermal performance isn't stellar thanks in large part to the glass panel up front. Given that, you'll almost certainly want to add to the pair of black fans (one in the front and one up top) that ships with this sale model, especially if you plan to load this case up with lots of high-powered components. I have four fans in my system, with a 1080 Ti and a 240mm CPU radiator, and temps stick to very reasonable levels, even when I'm rendering video or fragging demons in Doom.
