    Hello guys
    Once again I need your help
    I sold my old rig, and built a new one, bought everything except the case and the HDD, and I want your help deciding which case I shall buy.

    I live in Greece, so there is a little availability in stores;

    I want a case with good airflow, water cooling support, full tower, USB 3 front panel support, buttons on the front top of the tower, and if possible, transparent side cover.
    Price is not a big problem, my budget is around 150€

    These are the shops than I can buy from
    (The language is Greek so you may have a problem helping me, but I have linked the cases page if that helps)

    One I found to my liking is this:

    Opinions on it?

    I think that case is decent enough for what you want. As per your preferences above it sort of suits them all.But it is a decent case and cooler master is ok, i have had a case of theres for many years in my old rig and been happy with it. =)

    Ohh so you like the CM Storm Trooper chassis.
    Cheers!
    I am currently using one. So let me tell you some pros and cons about it.

    Pros:
    > excellent airflow with multiple fan mounting options
    > can mount 2x360 rads (bottom, top) and some say you can mount a third one in the front with some mod
    > very easy cleaning, you can access the front fans very easily by just removing the mesh covers without screws. fan filters are very accessible.
    > built-in fan controller (not really that good since it controls all the fans connected but it is useful)
    > spacious back side, excellent for cable management.

    Cons:
    > really heavy
    > looks rather plain with it being all black but it does look nice if you put some leds on it.
