looking for a new case.

Yes the fans are RGB so you can make that any color you want (they're controllable via motherboard software too)

so as the title says and much like my other posts i am looking for something new, i live in the Netherlands and prices are kinda eh. I'm looking for a case that's up to around 150 euro. 

It needs to have above 320mm on the GPU length and at least room for a CPU cooler with the height of around 159mm+. (more is always better ofc). and the possibility for a radiator later along the line. 

 

I do love cases that have fans with them pre-installed. and i would love to have a glass side panel. 

Which case best suits my preference? 

 

the current list of parts i have in my old case which i am currently using are these: 

Msi b450 gaming pro carbon ac

Evga gtx 1070 sc

ryzen 5 2600x 

Crucial CT2K8G4DFD8213 2x8(16gb)

hyper 212 Evo

Coolermaster gm g550m

2 SSD's from Samsung (boot is 125gb and a game ssd of 250gb)

1 tb hhd from WD blue.

 in the Sharkoon T3-V USB 3.0 case

 

so yes my current setup isn't bad. but it's not great either. 

i have the following parts that i will be getting 

the RTX 2070 super one of these 3:

Gigabyte Geforce RTX 2070 Super GAMING OC White 8G €590

Gigabyte Aorus GeForce RTX 2070 Super 8G  €629

MSI GeForce RTX 2070 Super Gaming X Trio €625

or a 2080 that for the price doesn't look bad either:

MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Gaming Trio €679

 

the motherboard and cpu will be the same. including the cooler but i might want to change it into a radiator later just not now. 

i will be switching to this psu:

Corsair RM750i

 

and most likely this ram stick: 

Kingston DDR4 HyperX Predator RGB 2x8GB 3200

 

and that's all the new stuff that i will be getting. now i need the case. which i do not know which one to get. i am not well known with cases. so please give your opinion/options. i'll look into them! 

 


PC: 
MSI B450 gaming pro carbon ac                                                     GTX 1070 sc (evga)

ryzen 5 2600x at 4.1ghz all core                                                     2560x1440 144hz (lg 32gk650f)
hyper 212 black edition cooler (2 fan push pull config)                   Coolermaster gm g550m

Price to value, Probalby the MB511 RGB, but overall I'd probably pick the H500 cause  I love 200mm Fans

Yes the fans are RGB so you can make that any color you want (they're controllable via motherboard software too)
