So I'm looking into replacing the case I currently have (HAF 932) with a cleaner case and I need some help with the available options/decisions. I've been out of the loop for a year or two. Budget is ~$400 USD, willing to spend a little more for the right case. I've always spent sub 200 on my cases, and I always end up replacing them after a year or two. Looking to keep this one and re use it for future ventures. I'm looking for the case to be relatively good at air cooling, but will eventually (whenever I do my next upgrade) be used for water cooling, and the pumps must be internal, not external - so room for those. Going for the smooth, clean, appearance - part of the reason my HAF 932 is going away. I'm looking for a minimum of 7 HDD interior bay slots. Black interior, black exterior, and an optional side panel. Excellent cable management would be ideal. USB 3.0 front ports (at least 2) Removable motherboard tray would be nice, not necessary. Room for 2x large GPUs (again, for the future upgrade) I was looking at a couple cases.. Lian Li a71f looks good, has the hdd bays, appears roomy, but lacks usb 3.0 and a black interior. That led me to the Lian Li a77f, which has usb 3.0 but also has a silver interior instead of the black anodized. The front isn't as aesthetically pleasing either, but at least it appears more functional. The xigmatech elysium has nice specs, plenty of room, watercooling options, but could be a little less ugly, although it is a bit better than my HAF. Anyway, I know I'm picky, and I'm open to compromise. Especially when things like a black interior can always be done (how much does anodizing cost?). I'm just searching for a good starting point for a next case. Thanks for any advice.
