Full tower, minimal look, silent and dust filters are a plus.

Looking for a full to super sized case, something with quality materials and construction. A solid side is preferred, but a full tampered glass or acrylic side would work, something clean looking works fine.

Budget is under 400 USD, though not a issue any price is worth a look. Also this case will be only be seen by myself so no need for a show stopping display piece.

Thought not deal breakers here are a few notes:

No need for external drive bays, if it does have them prefer covered ones. Dust filters are a huge plus, the environment here is not favorable to computers. USB 3.0 ports are not needed but also a plus, though most modern cases have them. Silent is preferred as the tower will be about 30 cm from myself when in use. Water cooling is not necessary for this system. Cable management are a huge plus, Velcro straps or many tie down points. Tool less or close to is a plus, if it is well designed and built.

Listed below are some cases that caught my attention some are also mid sized just to show the minimal aspects and look. Not list in any particular order.

Mid tower:

NZXT S340 (Black/Blue) ATX Mid Tower Case

Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ATX Glass ATX Mid Tower Case

Corsair Carbide 400C ATX Mid Tower Case

Phanteks ECLIPSE P400S ATX Mid Tower Case

Thermaltake Core P5 ATX Mid Tower Case

Corsair Carbide Clear 600C ATX Mid Tower Case

Full tower:

Ah had seen a few of those and missed adding them to my favorites. I love the Enthoo Evolv they seem to be on back order everywhere, plus wish they made it in a full sized tower.

I'd look into the Dark Base 900 pro. they've just released it with a "special" low price that will go up $20 soon. I got a 303 yesterday, very nice case for under $100. great build quality. can never go back to these acrylic and polycaronite windows after seeing the tempered glass in person.

Ah had also looked at that one, the front is a bit odd if the price was lower or on a sale I would put some thought in to it.

Antec's cases the past 5 years or so have been pretty bleh in general.

yes, they are stuck in 2008 at best. Antec is an auto no buy IMO. they don't know what they're doing and they don't even care. that's why they are irrelevant in the case market these days. they aren't worth wasting money on.
