I've posted recently asking for advice for a new computer and I'm pretty much set except I can't figure out what type of case would be a good fit for my machine and which brand to get. The impression I'm getting right now is that people don't put much thought into which computer case to get, and I'd like to get suggestions and the thought process behind those suggestions.
I also have some questions : with my setup, should I be looking at a full or mid tower, taking into consideration I'm getting (I think) a very good fan? And how many built-in fans should I aim for? Some people also suggested that I get models that are older than I would like, but I'm not sure if it's justified to be suspicious of those. Newer models presumably have newer technology while older models have proven themselves to be quality products.
Some of the models I was considering are : Rosewill Thor V2, Cooler Master HAF 932 (both full towers), and for mid towers : Corsair 400R, Corsair 500R, Rosewill Blackhawk, Antec nine hundred, Cooler master HAF 922 and the Fractal Arc Midi. Of course don't hesitate to give suggestions other than those. 160$ (base price) is around the max I want to pay for a case, preferably a bit lower.
