Looking for best Mid-Tower case with great airflow through front

Hey Tom's this is my first post here. I would like to downgrade the size of my case (Rosewill Thor V2) while maintaining the excellent airflow i get from this case. I run a voltage overclocked 780ti on and MSI gaming 5 mobo and have always had a 140mm Noctua fan blowing across the GPU PCB from front to back. I also have a Corsair H100 cooler, top mounted so that takes up precious intake fan space. I love the look of the Fractal Design Define S case as well has the NZXT H440. However, the lack of grating on the front panel concerns me due to lack of airflow. Do you think this is a legitimate concern and perhaps have case recommendations for me? A side window would be nice but isn't a deal breaker. My budget is $120 at the absolute max. Thank you very much for your time!

    Wow, yeah this is a great looking case that I haven't seen before. Just curious what GPU you run and what your temps are under full load. Regardless, I will probably pull the trigger on this one.

    I use my PC for data processing, so I do not have a GPU. The case will hold a GPU up to 310 mm, which is quite large. My temps, as measured by Core Temp http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/ average about 32 degrees Celsius because I use my PC heavily in a non-air conditioned environment. This case holds many different configurations of fans and water coolers, it is very versatile.
