Case Recommendations

Looking for a full sized case that will balance the following requirements:

Full sized with good airflow (it's for a 4k gaming rig). Relatively quiet (as long as my college room mate doesn't kill me, I'm fine) Will leak plenty of light: planning on getting some LED case fans and a cold cathode tube, just for decor. Perhaps something with a partial acrylic panel?

Thanks!

Full tower and quiet generally don't go hand in hand. For quiet you're looking at mid-ATX or smaller with sound dampening material, which isn't good for cooling. What do you want more? Silence or cooling?

noise level depends almost 100% on the parts inside your build. my build is near silent even at load since I did my wc loop for my cpu, much quieter than it was in my "silent" mid tower. I swapped cases from the H440 to Enthoo Luxe. of course, I had an H100i in the H440 that was the problem in terms of noise and cpu temps.

Thanks! Seems like that will be the case for me then. I've had a few other people recommend the same, but I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing any cool cases out there.
