I have Meshify C and I love it.  Good airflow, easy to build in,  great design&looks.


Main system: i7 8700k 5Ghz / Asus Prime Z370-A / Corsair Vengeance 2x8GB 3000Mhz / Gigabyte RTX2080 Aorus Extreme / EVGA 750W GQ / Fractal Design Meshify C

I love my NZXT s340 Elite (Which I guess wasn't under $100 because it was $100) but I just learned that it was discontinued and replaced with the H500 which IMO does not look quite as good. Something about that glass side panel not covering the entire side just bugs me.

for now the mx330-g is my favourite case. it has good airflow, good looks, PSU shroud, and room for a lot of drives, 2x3.5", 2x2.5", 1x5.25". There is only one problem with it; it does not have room for a big air cooler like the nh-d15 or dark rock pro 4. That's the only reason I'm hesitating on it.

if anyone knows of a case with the same qualities but a bit wider let me know.

Right now? NZXT H500, or Corsair 570X. The Meshify C Dark TG is also up there.

Overall I'd have to give the award to the Phanteks Enthoo Pro M TG. Unless you need a more compact case like theMeshify C, this is basically the jack of all trades master of none. Dual 360 rad support, good airflow, good build quality, interior is the same as you find in the Evolv ATX (original, not the better updated one)

 

Coolermaster's Masercase H500 gets an honorable mention for some of the best Out Of The Box thermals and reviving the 200mm fan.
