The Cooler Master Cosmos has some great reviews and Max PC MAG rated it the best case of 07. Although a bit pricey you get what you pay for and thats now where close to the most expisive case out there.

You might want to look at some of Lian Li's cases.
They're typically more expensive than most cases, but their build quality is very good.

I have a Lian Li PC-A70. Great case, but it's not cheap.

I've modified mine though:

mod it like Apok
your case + fans would work I think, as long as you got good air flow through out the case

You could never go wrong with Antec 900 or Thermlatake Case if you want maximum airflow.

I turn my computer OFF every night anyway, so the Blue LED doesn't bother me.

I would have to say Lian Li's or Coolermasters

I don't think either company makes a bad case.
