case to fit these requirements?

Hello! I've been looking around, and i can't seem to find any good cases that fit my specific needs.

i'm looking for a good case with eatx motherboard support, big case window/tempered glass side panel, and enough space to support a 360mm radiator both on top and in front. i've been looking around for awhile, and it's surprisingly scarce out there. case budget is $300. the case needs to be a standart atx format (no cubes or gpus extending to the other side of the case).

the case can be new or old, just so long as it has a good internal view and has good clearance for both a top and front 360mm radiator setup. and looks clean. so a case like the dark base 900 pro is very nice, but because of it being so modular, the motherboard is too open, leading to a lot of visible cables. also good airflow is a priority, so a case with a blocked off top or front with only side vents like the h500p is not ideal.

i refuse to use anything from ThermalFAKE.

system will have 2 3.5inch hard drives, 2 2.5inch ssds, and one nvme m.2 which goes on the board. i also plan to expand, so good drive support is also needed.

It's a really fantastic case, well built, multiple colour choices and expand-ability for your requirements :)

Image result for 780t

 

One of these days I'd like to see a picture of a young kitten sleeping curled up on a dual or triple-fan video card (one with a backplate). :) Of course not while the card is under load, unless it's like one of these - a lower TDP card, not like a 1080 Ti FTW/equivalent or Vega 64. :)

Oh, and btw, is there a hardware switch or similar to turn off the fan LEDs (or other LEDs, other than power & HDD indicators) on the 780T?  I like to keep a running list of cases I'd personally consider if I found myself needing to buy one, and I generally don't like ones that have the aesthetic LEDs always on, or require you to post / enter BIOS/UEFI / boot an OS before you can turn them off (using software instead of a hardware switch).
