I agree with everything there man except one small problem.
The case, I hate it.
Newegg.com - NZXT Switch 810 - CA-SW810-B1 Black Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case with USB 3.0, SD card reader, 4x 140mm fans, 420mm radiator support, full coverage fan filters, I/O panel lighting, and hard drive hot swap

I know it's kind of ugly but check ALL of it's features before you write it off.
Here's a vid of linus giving it a unboxing review.

Have you considered writing one of the two places you can use to see if they can get it for you?
I wouldn't think it a big deal. So far as I know nzxt sell worldwide.

While I don't disagree it's a quality case, it just seems....
I don't know, ...like the obvious choice.



...does amazon by any chance ship to you, or even amazon uk maybe?
Because that would also open up a plethora of new options.

Panais, I can only speak for the HAF X case, because I own one. As far as space for the GPU, they don't make a GPU that won't fit it. I have an 11+' GPU and still have 3" to spare. It is one of the cases where you won't have to ask, will it fit, whether you're talking about a GPU or a cooler. I also have a NH-D14 that fits with plenty of room.

NZXT seems to be on a roll with their cases.....but you have to get what you can get The Silverstone has a lot of complaints about breakage Newegg.com - SILVERSTONE RAVEN RV01-BW Black Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case The Coolermaster had a run where the motherboard backplate was not alined correctly with the pci slots Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER HAF X RC-942-KKN1 Black Steel/ Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

But more often than not people were happy
