Question Looking for Mid-ATX case that works with noctua nh-d14

Hey everybody, I am on a budget and looking for a nice(plain and not over transformer looking case) for my old 775 desktop. I can't get the Noctua NH-D14 to work properly with my antec solo case so I need something wider and where the PSU attaches at the bottom.
I am looking in the under $100.00 mark for a case...I don't need flashy lights or 15 fans. Just looking for a case that can house my desktop and allow it to cool better.
Any suggestions you guys have are greatly appreciated :-)

I recommend the Bitfenix Shinobi. It will fit and it can be had for around $60.00 at NCIX, Canada Computers, etc...

Thank you! I ended up purchasing the cooler master 690 II basic. I hope this thread will be a help to others as I want to keep this HSF for the future. The case cost me 87.00 tax in shipped so not bad for keeping it sub 100.00. The differences between the Advanced and basic are really minimal and not worth me paying extra for features I know I won't use myself.
I was thinking for the 400R but really for the price I rather get the cheaper one as both seem pretty good.
