Definitely sounds like a full tower to me

Anyways I have a full tower and I don't run that many drives

What about pricing? Is something like the HAF X or Corsair's 800D/700D too pricy?

The pricing is not bad, but I am not a huge fan of the style. The features are great though

Thanks for all those reviews, they are pretty helpful.

**Side note: I am looking through other brands, but I have used their cases extensively in my builds or know a lot about the company**

Out of curiosity, which style are you talking about?

Thanks

I am trying to get away from a plexiglass window. I settled for one, however, because the front was very classy. But so many years later, I tire of opening a door to access a drive. Also, the... ah, "accents" on the front are not really my bag (the haf X)

The 800D/700D is pretty out of my price range. I am indeed trying to stay around $100

Have you looked at the Antec range of cases.
Good quality, reasonably priced and a lot of models to choose from.

Thanks.

Yeah, I'm not into the plexi as well, but for the price and performance of the case (for me, the HAF X), I could overlook the plexiglass side. Besides the enclosure that my case fits in hides the side panel anyway

As to styling... I can understand that the HAF X isn't for everyone, but again, for me, my enclosure masks the look a lot.

Anyways, sounds like you've narrowed your budget and style. Now you just have to find what meets those needs

I have, however the mesh is too large, and does not at all match my accessory. My vista machine is housed in an antec 300

I'm really leaning towards an NZXT, XCLIO, or a CoolerMaster, I think. I put in my order for my time restrained things, so no worries about the two hours anymore. I keep forgetting that newegg's shipping is different now.

LiquidSnak,
Consider the new Corsair case talk about classy !
Welcome to Corsair :: Corsair Graphite Series™ 600T Product Information
Good luck, I do love my Thermaltake Element V full tower but it's up around $129.00 or abouts.
