This is the setup I'm trying to get. I currently own a Corsair Carbide 500r. It's old but damn I love it. I'm trying to find a good replacement for it, but I'm a bit lost. I prioritize Cooling -> Noise -> Fashion in this order, but I'm really partial to Corsair.

Help really appreciated.

Does price factor into this? Do you need a window? Does it need to be glass? I mean, give us something. That HardwareCanuck guy debuts a new case like every week. Maybe take a look there to get some ideas.

Price can range from 70$ to around 150$. I don't NEED a window, but I like it. I really don't care about the look honestly.

If I have to give something, colour should be black. Smooth, elegant design.Possibly with a glass window. But I care more about cooling and materials and noise rather than look.

Just get the Define R5 then. It’s what I have. It looks like a generic mini fridge, but it has 140mm fans, sound padding, dust filters, and plenty of space.

If you want to stick with corsair, the 400C looks great.

If you go fractal, the define mini is an updated version of the R5, it has a PSU shroud.

You mean the Define C, but the R5 is much bigger than the define C so the cooling performance should be also a bit better and i dont think that the define c is a updated case from the R5, both are just different cases with similar style.

I was actually already looking into the 400C. I'm a bit worried about the space inside. Definitely looks interesting.

What about this? Heard mixed things, but I like the idea of improved air flow, especially during summer (gets really hot here, up to 40°C)

CyberPowerPC uses the hell out of those MasterCases. They've even got an exclusive one with a glass front panel. It looks pretty cool. But I thought you wanted function over everything else? I think those Mastercases lack the sound foam padding and dust filters. But they're still good cases.
