Case that comes with 2+ fans, filter and USB 3 front ports?

I know almost nothing about cases, except that I have had terrible luck with Rosewill ones. So, I need some help. I know what I want, but not sure the best options out there. I would like fans to come with the case (2 or more please), a dust filter for easy cleaning and USB 3 front ports. Less expensive is better but a decent level of quality needs to be there. Thoughts?

  • what's the budget for everything including the case?
  • you need a change in power supply too

Thanks for the reply!

$2000 roughly. So the case needs to be ~$100 or under.

Also, the power supply is in case I want to SLI another 1070 down the road.

okay. it isn't a good psu so it just has to go. you can get a 650 watt for SLI easily. though InvaderGir hit the right nails on the head. there aren't many sub $100 cases with more than two USB ports, the Enthoo pro is a good choice. and at $89.99 the Corsair RMx750 has no competition.

Thanks for the info. I meant USB 3.0 not three usb ports, but thanks for those examples.

The Enthoo Pro is probably your best choice, and as PureBlackFire said, you need to change that PSU as it's a tier 4, an EVGA G2, GQ, P2 or a Corsair RMX. There is a really good deal for the RMX 750w variant at $89.99, you probably wont need that much but it's a great deal.

Well add PSU to cases to the list of parts I know least about.

Is tier 4 not good enough or overkill for my build?

Tier 4 is the second lowest tier, it's not good.

EDIT: Removed some cases...

none of these will work for him, he needs at least one optical bay.

Ah ok thanks, completely missed that.

I can just not add the bay, I would just leave it in my old build. Also I updated the PSU, is that one good enough?

Fractal Design Refine R5 if you want optical bays. Goes on sale frequently in the $89 range.

also a windowed version

the "S" is less money, but no optical bay.

and with a window for a little more

I like the layout of the "S", but I own the R5 non-window. The S wasn't available when I bought my R5

happy to help. it is a wide case, but it is easy to work with.

here's my build with it. http://pcpartpicker.com/user/danhoo/builds/#view=XvgLrH

You could go with the CM 690III. Looks great and has filters everywhere. It also has a sidepanel window. It has no pricing at the moment but it should be sub $100.
