    Hi Savage Hunter welcome to PureOC!

    Do you have any budget? If you ask me i would go for a silverstone TJ-07. its the best case money can buy

    It is future proof and can cater to all your needs if you r thinking dual graphics card and watercooling as part of your road map

    It maybe costly but if you are considering liquid cooling and dual graphics card i would splash the cash once and for all. This case has all the features u need, buying this case and u will have no worry about upgrading when the watercooling addiction hits you

    Actually, I would recommend the SilverStone TJ-10, instead of the TJ-07. There should be a review up for it later this week. At its stock configuration, it cools really well with an air setup. I placed 1600rpm Yate Loon's in the included fan holders in mine and it keeps a very cool stable temp. There is also plenty of room for a water-cooling setup.

    If you are going for liquid cooling, there is one important question: Do you want to have all your hardware, including radiators etc. intenal in the case?

    Multi-GPU setups require lot's of cooling and you'll need a really good and large case to get it all to work internally. If you want to use an external rad-box or mount radiators on the outside of the case, that gives you different options and you don't need that much space inside your case.

    What's your budget? There are several very good and large cases, but they do differ quite a bit in pricing.

    Hi and hello from me too.

    Cases are such a personal thing...Do you like Bling? Do you want the most efficient cooling?

    Where you live can make a difference too because some cases are hard to get or very expensive if you live in the "wrong" country.

    If I could choose a case and not have to consider the above then I would get a Mountain mods but not if it had to live on my desk...it needs space.
