I'm looking into getting a new case and I just can't make a decision on a lot of them. I need an inch or so on the back of the motherboard area for wires . I also need a few bays. Here is my current setup: http://pcpartpicker.com/l ... ist/b3b6D8

I'm also looking into getting a bigger water cooler like the H100i if it can fit in the case. I'm terrible with wire management so recommendations on that part too would be great. My preferred brands are Corsair or NZXT. I'll will look at others though. 

Thank you in advance!

This will fit pretty much any hardware config you can imagine, and it comes with every screw you would ever need to assemble a PC, in neat little plastic organizer box rather then the shit baggies of screws you get with brands like Corsair, NZXT, etc..

This case is a no-brainer (if you dont mind having a full tower PC)

Been thinking about picking this up. I'm curious why you would need a few bays

Anyway that is one fine case. Would make a really clean build.

If I don't buy that case next month i will be getting this one. OOOOO is so sexy. I no longer need bays.

I currently have the  Corsair Vengeance and I really like it so far. I have had it for 2 years now and it is still in great condition.

Pros
 - Sturdy metal construction
 - 2 handles that flip down flat against top of the case, makes it really easy to carry it
 - Lots of space inside for expansion
 - Slots for air filters for fans
 - Rubber mounting brackets for fans, makes them very quiet.
 - Enough space for proper cable management
 - I enjoy the front side USB 3.0 and audio ports.
 - Sides are held on with clasps instead of screws, makes it really easy to pop them off and tinker around inside

Cons
 - Heavier than what I normally buy
 - Bright internal lights (may be a Pro for some)

This is the dream, but it's built for 100% water cooled (which you aren't). 

I looked at a bunch and think most and ugly as shit, look for high airflow.  The one I posted above shows a good things for wire management, the channels in the back are all built it to hide 90% of your wiring and help with airflow.  Wire management is often overlooked, but is a great way to help your system run better.

Something like this is better but you have to be mindful of your fan input/output cfms.  You want the system to be balanced so that you are forcing in just as much air as you are pushing out of the system.  The front fans  can help intake as well as the top fans, then your bottom and back fans can push out.  I little bit more tricky when a radiator is cover one of the output fan slots.

Absolutly, too bad thats a drive. But worth it

Having a 2 hour break between classes kinda blows. Too short to go home, too long to stay entertained.

Also, the PVP aspect of it is really fun. It is comparable to Quake and Unreal Tournament.

If we keep growing we are planning on adding fireteam channels under the Destiny 2 channel so it isn't so crazy in the main channel.
