My System Specs

Default Choosing a PC case

I need suggestions for a new full tower case!
Must have:
1) Great airflow
2) Dust filters
3) Good cable management options
4) Water cooling compatibility
5) Room for a at least 240mm radiator
6) Good space to host a large sized GPU

Optional:
1) Fan controls (would be good)
2) Side window
3) Hot swaps for SSD and 3.5 bays
4) LED's :D
Also, my budget is around $150 (can go over but prefer not to)
Thank you already :)

Sounds like a LVL 10 GT to me, although that's gonna be more than $150..... :)

Might be best if you let folks know what your current "no budget concerns at all" choice would be and they can probably point you towards something similar.

I looked into the Stor Trooper and I just dont think i will ever grow to its looks :D
Nd did mention that my budget is around $150 but I would prefer not to go over it
Also, any opinions towards the NZXT Phantom?

Switch 810 or Antec 1100?

Not sure how close to 150 they are but I think close.

The 600t and 1100 are mid towers...
And the 810 is way over as well
