    Hi guys,

    Im looking at building a new PC soon and I think its time to move on from my old CM Centurion 530.

    Here is a breakdown of what I am looking for:
    - Full tower case
    - Side window
    - Decent Air cooling ( may upgrate to watercooling in a few months )
    - Sleek design

    I am looking towards the Corsair 800D but the air cooling is suppose to be fairly poor.
    The NZXT Spirit 810 is another case of intrest, but the plastic portions of the case make it look cheap imo. The CM HAF-X has been recommended to me but I think it looks like garbage :).

    TLDR; A full tower case similar in looks and price to the 800D

    Any help on this decision would be great! :)

    Thanks!
    Dan.

    EDIT: The 700D is an ideal middleground but Its past its lifecycle and out of stock everywhere. Can I get a hold of one anywhere ?

    I was looking at the Phanteks Enthoo Primo alright. The only Issue thats preventing a preorder for myself is the issue with graphics card length could become a problem as I do plan on SLI with the watercooling in a few months.

    Its detailed here:

    The Cooler Master ATCS 840 seems like a hard one to find too as it its out of product life cycle.

    The Fractal Design Define XL R2 is lacking a side window. Otherwise it looks pretty good.

    Any other cases on the market in this price region ?

    @Kovoet

    Thanks but I am looking for a side window. Not a huge fan of aesthetics of that case either.

    The Antec 1900 looks promising, any word on a release date ?
