should hit most of your needs. Got no idea about pricing though. You have to check that yourself ?

Hi there

 

I'm wondering if you know of any cases that meet these criteria - I've searched for a few hours and have not yet been successful:

 

1. 'Silent' style mid-tower case.  No windows or fancy styling are required (because I wouldn't be able to see inside anyway with my setup), but it doesn't have to be a bargain-basement design either.  I will consider full tower cases if absolutely required. The case width needs to be of a standard-ish size (can't be too wide).

2. Front panel IO. With a z390 motherboard (GB Aorus Master) I would like to take advantage of USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type A as well as Type C. 3-4 Type A ports preferred.

3. Cooling.  I'm hoping to fit an AIO radiator with two fans at the front of the case. I would prefer a high end 280mm cooler such as the Kraken (bigger fans, slightly less noise). It will be attached to an Intel 9900K.

4. Optical drive bay.  I use optical discs too often in my current PC to give up on it already, and I'm don't want to get an external one if I can help it.  It seems current case manufacturers force us to choose between an optical drive or large radiator  (and those that do not are missing the updated Front panel IO).

5. Available to purchase in Melbourne, Australia.  Budgeting around $120-300 AUD.

 

Hoping to see some great recommendations that I've somehow missed so far...
