Recommendation for case needed!

Hello I am looking for a good looking case, prefer mid tower not full.

It must be elegant , cool and quite.

I will do some over clocking as well.

Thank you!

Budget is not important

I forgot to mention I don`t need water cooling.

How can budget not be important. Also, what size do you want. Mid tower to full tower.

Some of my favorite cases
Corsair 600T : $150 Out at end of month, great midtower case, ton of room
Corsair 800D: $275 Huge case, tons of features, very nice looking,
Antec 900/902: $115 3/4 tower, great airflow, tons of gamers have this case
Antec 300: $55. Nothing elaborate, mid tower, functional
Antec Sonata III 500: $145. Comes with 500W power supply, nearly silent, great case ( i have 2 of the Sonata II's).
HAF -X: $200. Full tower case by coolermaster. People love 'em, nice features. Industrial look which I don't care for.

stick with one of the cases mentioned in this thread and you won't go wrong. NewEgg has sone deals with a case and power supply. if you don't already have a power supply. Me? I like CoolerMaster. I have a HAF 932 and I liked it so well I ordered a HAF X today for my other rig.
Good cable management
Excellent air flow design
Fans are really quiet
Pleanty of room inside
Mickey referred to it as an "industrial appearance", I would call it "rugged".

Thanks for all your suggestions I want a mid tower something elegant like Antec P183 but since I read some reviews that Antec P183 is not good cool and quite enough I wanted to ask other opinions.

I would not say that the P183 is not a good case. I happen to own and use an Antec P182 on my main Windows 7 rig. It's very cool inside, and it's very quiet. My video card is by far the loudest thing in the case. A coworker of mine has the P183 and it's almost identical to mine.



Here is the front with the door open. There are filters behind each of those doors at the bottom;


The only reason I didn't recommend this case is that I think
1). it needs to be black inside nowadays
2). it needs to have more access ports for cable management and a cut out for the CPU on the mobo tray.

So do you think I should go for the Antec P183? Is it quite and cool?

Can it hold over cloaking? I am gonna buy the i7 930 and OC it from 2.8 to 3.8.

Can it hold X58A-UD5 GIGABYTE mobo?
