I am completely new at building computers, but I have been doing thorough research and I am very excited at building my first rig!
That being said, I am currently stuck in finding a decent case for under 200 USD. I've been looking at several mid-sized cases because I won't be adding multiple graphics cards, but the cases that I have looked at (Corsair 450D, Fractal R4, NZXT H440) all have deficits that I would like to avoid.
So here is what I am looking for, and hopefully you guys can recommend something. Requirements:
- Window side panel
- Great airflow + Filters (I love the easy-to-remove dust filters of the Corsair 450D)
- Preferably Tool-less (or minimal use of tools)
- Easy wire routing for first time builders
- 2 x 3.0 USB + 2 x 2.0 USB
Note: My favorite so far was the 450D, but there have been so many mixed reviews about the wire routing and cheap parts, that it deterred me from selecting the case. And now I'm losing my mind trying to figure what would work best for me. Also, any additional advice for a newbie would help. Thanks in advance :)
