Case Recommendations?

Hey guys. So I am building my first computer and I need some assistance. I am looking for a case (preferably under $70, around $100 is fine) that:

A. is spacey for parts and cables (Mid-tower) B. looks appealing (LED) C. has a few fans that comes with it (I am most likely purchasing a liquid cooling system as well) D. has USB 3.0

I am looking at the Rosewill Blackhawk currently, and if I don't find anything I think that is what I am sticking with. I am building an all around computer, leaning towards the gaming/editing category. Thank you so much for your help!

p.s. I would be very grateful if you took a look at some of the parts I have chosen thus far (they are not final nor complete) and give me some tips.

Thanks

I recomend a Coolermaster storm enforcer or the NZXT Tempest 410 Elite (I love this case, has giant window for your LED's) I came down to these cases, both are roughly the same price. The NZXT only has 1 usb 3.0 though, as the CM has 2. If you do go with the NZXT, it has a specific place for your radiator (up to 280mm). Thats why I went with the NZXT, as it holds my Kraken x60 perfect in it!. Lots of space for cable management, even a little storage for cords and stuff (also a big seller)! Best of luck choosing a case, its probly one of the best parts of the build!!

Try looking at some fractal design cases, they have EXTREMELY nice cases just in that range! I've used them twice, and they aren't disappointing.

Thank you so much for the suggestion. I think I am going to end up going with a semi-cheap full tower, but I will consider this if I don't. Thanks!

I personally think doing water cooling is a little bit of a waste of money if your not going to overclock (you have the non K version 3770). I would recommend either just getting the 212 EVO to same some money, or spend a little more to get the K version, and get the most out of your CPU.

Yeah thanks I just switched my CPU to the non K. Do you think its worth spending extra money, or do they perform similarly?

I think they perform similarly, but the K will perform better if you overclock it.
