Question Going from HAF-X to ... (need suggestion)

Hi all,

I currently use a HAF-X. I love it. But due to recent changes in my house, my case is now on top of my desk and it takes a LOT of place.

I was thinking switching to a mid-tower but I'm not sure what is best these days. Here are a few points to consider:
  • All black interior
  • Side window
  • Currently on dual SLI but won't be doing it after next upgrade
  • Cleancut, no dust magnets (this means no gloss, no transformer-like designs)
  • Budget is ~$100
  • I hate looking at cables
  • Will always air cool, no OC
  • (Optional) Is there something with USB type C header? Should I wait for it?

EDIT : Saw other posts about Fractal Design S. Could be a nice one but I am still wondering if I should wait for Type C header ones.

Thank you!

If you had a mATX Board, I would strongly suggest the Corsair 240. I was shocked at how nice of a setup it made for my computer.
Its a very clean cut cube case, that just sorta fits wherever it goes. The Matte finish works for it too, not attracting smudges and dust like the polished 'piano' finish you are talking about.

The only other top of the head one would be maybe a Source 340?
