So I have been looking for quite a while now to figure out what would be the best case to suit my needs. I have a couple requirements:
Needs front or top USB 3.0
Window on side
Enough space to fit large video cards (300+mm) Bottom mounted PSU
Potential space to mount a 120mx2 Rad for something like a Corsair H100i
I am going for a black and red scheme since I bought a MSI X87 G45 motherboard, have ripjaws (red) RAM, and my video card is red. So I don't want a blue case or anything like that, also hopefully would like a Mid tower more than Full tower.
Budget is hopefully under $120
My top pics so far are:

NXZT Phantom 410 (Red) - Or any color for that matter* http://pcpartpicker.com/part/nzxt-case-caph410r1
** I would normally go with this but I have read reviews that people say the red plastic is not the same color as the red metal, and that the paint chips off very easily, etc.

I was wondering if anyone else has an option that I might have overlooked? Many thanks.
