Finally switched to cpu and gpu being WC, but the gpu pump makes whining noise (crappy asetek design),
all fans are inaudible (8dba or less, all throttled), nor do i want other noise to drown it out,
so im looking for a new case.

I would prefer having one with the "front" air intake positioned to the right (next to MB, with/without 240 rad space),
since the case is on the desk (2 ft distance) and it would help preventing sound escaping the front.
Top should be at least two 120 fans, better three (140), and two on bottom (case not just psu cover).

So far i do like the Thermaltake's (allow for virtually complete tear down, lots of space between frame/panels),
especially the cubes (need ATX support tho), or the Suppressor F31.
Doesnt need to be a silenced case (can do that myself), acrylic window is fine (if all other stuff is met) as long as its tinted.

Trying to stay below 100-150$, as i dont really need it (recent build with Tt versa with TG),
and once i move (own house) in a few years will be a clear desk with visible parts/WC.

what i have

want something similar :

Thanks.
Even that i could find it for a decent price, i would still prefer a Tt because of the less restrictive fan openings.
But i decide (for now) to rather swap the card for one with a block and just integrate it into the eisbaer i already have (pump noise is low and at least not high frequency).
