I quite like the idea of a highly visable case that shows off my Mobo (Maximus 8 fomular) with RGB aswell as having good air flow from top to bottem aswell having a fan spliter (as I love my fans!)

My old case is having trapped heat at the top front which is a slight worry for me atm.

 

Price tag is £130

 

I knew i'd seen this case in a vid before and look and behold.

 

 

UPDATE

Case bought extra items include

RGB lighting will make this case look so dam good!

I recently bought one of these for my son, as he wanted a smaller case to attend Insomnia 58 at the NEC. The 'Gamer' tag means it has a clear screen and it takes a full ATX motherboard.

What do you mean by the case 'trapped heat'? Too many people get obsessed with bells and whistles they don't need. Mind you, I'm a minimalist, so I run as few fans/lights/gimmicks on the PC as I can.

basicly I get a little heat build up in the top front area of my case where my CD drive is.

Also with my current case installing a push pull CPU water cooler is problematic, as my Mobo clips the fan stopping me from installing the push fans atm. The case im looking at removes this by allowing me to move the radiator towards the front more.

If you live anywhere near Worcester, I have 2 midi tower cases I don't need and you're welcome to either of them. They don't have a see-through plastic panel, but they are both quality cases. The first is an Antec P100 and the second is an Antec P180.

 

Thanks for the offer, but I really want to treat myself to a nice case to have the RGB lighting of my Maximus 8 forumlar Mobo with RGB lighting extension cord aswell. :)

Also I live near Bournemouth lol.

If you don't mind a cube form factor, then I personally recommend the Coolermaster HAF XB, it has a removable mobo tray, handles for easy carrying, excellent cooling, 2 hotswappable HD bays and a plastic top so you can see the interior:

Otherwise I suggest you look at the Corsair Carbide series, I haven't tried it myself but I've heard a lot of praise for this case:

Having good front air flow is a must for me.

I really want to get RGB lighting stips to go with it Donut,

This item seems to be a good RGB lighting strip to go with my RGB Asus Mobo.

I have an older HAF XM mid tower case that is awesome.  However, it doesn't have much in the way of glass.  It makes up for it with fans everywhere ( I obsess with them).  At the same time, it is pretty much silent despite all the fans.  I'm so happy with it that my next case will undoubtedly be in the HAF (High Air Flow) line.

Has any websites done an analysis of open-air cases? I wonder what the pros/cons are besides the obvious (easy installs, dust, temps)

I highly recommend you check out Linus techtips and Hardware canucks on youtube.  These guys have reviewed many PC cases and components over the years and they include a handful of open-air/benchmark cases.  For instance:

      Morning all
      I was wondering if those who use joystick and throttle can lend me some help.  I have a logitech X56 HOTAS and have finally after much trial and error have gotten it to work.
      The issue I am personally having is the way the default thrust is working with my throttle.  For example in Elite Dangerous my throttle works like I would expect, if I slide it all the way back that is a dead stop.  If I push forward it is full engine throttle.  In this game the throttle is idle in the middle which is hard to find for me cause my throttle has no mid detent, also when I push forward it goes in reverse engine thrust and when I pull all the way back it is full thrust forward.  To me this is not good especially how the throttle IMO is reversed.
      Is there a way to make the throttle perform like it does in elite where I can use the full range for going forward and set a reverse button and if not can someone assist me in getting it whee at least when I push all the way forward it is full throttle forward.  I have tried setting in game settings FLIGHT - HOTAS thrust invert toggle to both settings yes and no and it has not effected how my throttle works at all is remains backwards to me.
      Thanks anyone who can lend assistance.

      After a long time of research and configuring what I believe to be the best set up for Star Citizen and general gaming and purpose, it's almost ready to start the process.
       
      I was always intrigued by the idea of a simpit but never liked the ergonomics until I came across this post and the set up going on:

      I believe this is the set up I'm going after. Just wanted to know if there was anything I should add to this list besides the Volair Simpit, large center display and two alternate displays:

      Hello,
      I come back to you following my thread that I did six month ago, and I have a lot of news!
      To sump up quickly, I’m in the company that has created the Lexip mouse, a mouse with two integrated joysticks for 3D profesionals. After my last thread, I talked with my team and the project of created a gaming mouse started.
      We have improved our first mouse thanks to our beta testing team who allowed us to create the perfect gaming mouse: 200 to 8200 DPI, braided cables, programmable buttons…
      Today, in order to bring this project to a successful conclusion, we launch our Kickstarter campaign! I wanted to share this information with you in preview because it’s thanks to you, members of this forum that this project is born. 
      I can answer all of your questions, this mouse is my baby! ;)
      Thank you for everything!

      WD PR4100, TS-453A-4G or DS918+
      The first two are very similar price give or take 50. The newer one of the QNAP, The TS-453B-4G, however, the pricing is gone way up to €702.67 from its old(er) version €491.82 TS-453A-4G.
      The TS-453A is the very similar with the PR4100 in price, but it does have HDMI, which the WD doesn't have. However it is software side that the QNAP is the king QNAP are supposed to be the leader in apps with synology coming second.  I'm leaning towards the second one TS-453A-4G at the moment.
      Basically I want to use it as another backup of my OS, torrent and watch vids really.  However, I lack the experience of running/setting up all three.
      any advice would be much appreciated.
