Best Case for Airflow

I've been looking for a good case under 200$, high airflow is the biggest need. I'll be getting a gtx 1070 when ever the price drops below 400$ For now I have a gtx 960 2gb microatx version.

So far my top 3 are either...
Corsair 600c
NZXT Phantom 530
Corsair Air 240 Micro Atx

You might be wondering why would I pick a micro Atx, my motherboard was fried so I'm open to any size mobo, amd only at the moment.

If anyone has any suggestions please tell me them ☺

  1. Swap the Corsair Air 240 for the 540 and I'd say you'd be set for airflow. The thing is a dream to work in.
  2. The site doesn't like ad blockers anymore... gives me 4-5 seconds before it kicks me out making it hard toi capture stuff.

    Aside from the unprecedented reviews and the gorgeous looks

    ... best fans on the market
    ... built on fan control PCB
    ... built in LED control system \and exterior LEDs

    I probably should've lowered the budget to like 150, what the difference between the luxe and the pro? Is the luxe like just the light up version of the pro or a different case. Also I hate when pc sellers do this s***, on Newegg the white version is 40$ more. And that's the one I want. I can afford it just that pisses me off
  4. What I would buy hands down. Your way overthinking airflow for the parts your using the stock fans would do you fine or add another 140mm in the front and a 120mm in the top if you think it's needed.

    Reasons I like the Luxe (I have the Luxe, the Pro and the Primo)

    1. The Luxe has an "attic" ... a little compartment accessible from the top that lets ou install case fans.
    2. The Luxe not only ha the LED om the exterior, but also has a LED control system to which you can add interior LEDs
    3. The Kuxe comes with extra fans ... that usually cost $20 each


    Newegg and other vendors switch up the prices frequently... the white sometimes is cheaper than the Black. However with the release of new GFX cards from AMD / nVidia, lotta new builds taking place... few days ago it was $159.. Here's $164

    And $159

  6. I personally love the NZXT H440. If you remove he bays and cable mange properly it works fantastically. But that can be said about all the other cases listed amready
