I can't make up my mind, I'm looking for something sleek, awesome looking, sturdy, great upgrading opportunities maybe sometime deciding to go quad gpu. By the way your reviews are great to watch. My budget is about £200 if I have to stretch it till I cry. Here's a list I have composed, most if not all are super tower cases;

 Coolermaster CM-690 II Advanced Dominator Case - Black [RC-692-KKN2]
Coolermaster ATCS 840
Thermaltake Element V Case
Thermaltake Spedo Advance Package Case

Lian Li PC-A7010 Case
Lian Li PC-V2010
Cooler Master Cosmos S
Thermaltake VH6000BWS - Rather go for the SWA model of it
Ultra ULT40125
xclio 1000 - Looks fantastic
Lian Li PC-P50R Armorsuit
Coolermaster Cosmos PURE Full Tower Case
Thermaltake VH6000SWA - Has awesome features, but can't tell if it has mesh or dust protectors

Coolermaster Cosmos PURE Full Tower Case - Another awesome looking case, looks well built, curious whether it has mesh or dust protectors for the intake fans. Please help me choose Sir Rodney Reynolds.

Last thing before I finish what do you think of my build almighty one. Got any recommendations? Thank you for your time, keep 'em reviews coming.

Best overall case for the money would be Coolermaster CM-690 II Advanced Dominator Case:

I personally have the Cooler Master 840 Case though:

I've got this same kind of question; I've worked with the CM-690 II on a build for a friend and was very impressed with it. I was going to get one for myself but the ATCS 840 is giving me second thoughts. Seeing how as of this date the price differential is only $70 USD on NewEgg is there any advantage going with the cheaper CM-690 II over the ATCS? Is the airflow on the CM-690 II superior?
