For my new build I want a good case with good cable managment. none of the cases I have ever owned have cable managnment. so power supply wires are everywhere and it doesn't look good. It does not affect my temperature but it's ugly if I have to clean the computer or if it is a clear side panel. - the case must have 1 front usb 3.0 for easy hookup for my external hard drive. - good build quality with cable managment. - enough room for a long graphics card like a 7950 if I decide to get that card. I think it's one of the longest. - I prefer a clear side panel and led fans. but if you can show me a real clean looking case with no leds and it's cheap I will choose it.
