I'm gonna break this down

My build is gonna be 32GB Ram, MSI MEG X299 CREATION ATX Intel Motherboard, 

That's an E-ATX motherboard, not ATX. An important distinction because some ATX cases cannot accept E-ATX motherboards. Like the Meshify C

I am shooting for temps between 40C - 55C. 

You will not hit those temps under load unless you go fully custom water cooled. If you wanted to get even close consider a 360mm AIO or a high end Air cooler like the Darck Rock Pro 4 or Noctua NH-D15

I have a couple cases in mind Thermaltake TT Premium A500 Tempered Glass ATX Mid Tower Chassis TT Premium Computer Case CA-1L3-00M9WN-00

MasterBox Lite 5 RGB ATX Mid-Tower with 3 x 120mm RGB Fans, Tempered Glass Side Panel, DarkMirror Front Panel & 2 Additional Color Trims for External Customization Options by Cooler Master

Rosewill - ATX Full Tower Gaming Computer Case - Supports Up to E-ATX MBs, Dual PSUs, and Up to 7 Fans - Rise. 

The Coolermaster case has almost no airflow, despite having 3 front fans they're nearly sealed off completely from any intake

 

The Thermaltake case case is decent, it has a lot of side intakes but it's not idea for "as cool of a system as possible"

 

The Rosewill RISE case has a good mesh front panel and supports E-ATX but it's a very old case. There's nothing wrong with it otherwise

 

I would look into something like The Lian Li PC-O11D or the PC-O11 Air (dont use the included front dust filter), CoolerMaster H500 (which supports exactly 10.7" long e-ATX boards like that one), Phanteks Enthoo Pro M TG, etc.

Doesn’t the h500p have notoriously bad airflow, especially in the front panel? I remember gamers nexus saying something about the front TG panel tending to fall off due to heat melting the glue or something. I would recommend the mesh or meshify c though.

The Mesh Version fixes 95% of what was bad with the original H500P, hence the "mesh" suffix being an important distinction. The original H500P's front panel was A, porrly constructed, B heavily restrictive because it was acrylic and the fans weren't properly positioned for the side vents it had, The Meshify C cant hold the E-ATX motherboard

I am curious to budget and reasonably priced Cases with optimal cooling (air flow). My build is gonna be 32GB Ram, MSI MEG X299 CREATION ATX Intel Motherboard, Intel i9-7900X Skyline, EVGA 850watt PSU, EVGA 1080TI (will upgrade in a few years to EVGA 2080TI), MasterLiquid ML240R RGB All-in-one (AIO) CPU Liquid Cooler, and Cooler Master Case fans x4. I am shooting for temps between 40C - 55C. I have a couple cases in mind Thermaltake TT Premium A500 Tempered Glass ATX Mid Tower Chassis TT Premium Computer Case CA-1L3-00M9WN-00, MasterBox Lite 5 RGB ATX Mid-Tower with 3 x 120mm RGB Fans, Tempered Glass Side Panel, DarkMirror Front Panel & 2 Additional Color Trims for External Customization Options by Cooler Master, and Rosewill - ATX Full Tower Gaming Computer Case - Supports Up to E-ATX MBs, Dual PSUs, and Up to 7 Fans - Rise.

If you really want the best air flow, either the cooler master h500 or h500p mesh, or the fractal design meshify c

500P Mesh. Or get something like Define R6/S2 and mod it with mesh 

Meshify C might end up being too compact to fit all that hardware.

A good Thermaltake product is rarer than full moon, so hard to recommend anything from TT. Cooler Master is marginally better.

Ex-EX build: Liquidfy C+... R.I.P.

Ex-build:

Meshify C – sold

Ryzen 5 1600x @4.0 GHz/1.4V – sold

Gigabyte X370 Aorus Gaming K7 – sold

Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x8 GB @3200 Mhz – sold

Alpenfoehn Brocken 3 Black Edition – it's somewhere

Sapphire Vega 56 Pulse – ded

Intel SSD 660p 1TB – sold

be Quiet! Straight Power 11 750w – sold

Hence why I said the mesh version
