Default Case with good air flow + 120mm fan support

Im building a new pc.
ATX motherboard.
Can anyone reccomend a case with good air flow?
I want to make my pc pretty much silent.
Im looking for a case w/ good air flow/ support for 120mm fan. I plan to have 1 or 2 of these (one intake one exaust)

I know about the Thermaltake armor but thats kinda pricy and big.
My current case is very similar to

Im also looking to keep my case/system dust free

hey. I have that case it's in my sig look lol. I just got it like 3 weeks ago. It is awesome. Super silent. Nice side panel window and it looks bad a$$. Get it. It's cheap too co,mpared to other cases. You never have to use tools to install cd drives or harddrives or even videocards and pci cards. I love it. Lol i wanted it to have the side logo, but mine didnt come with it. Maybe all of em are like that. Oh well.

Thumbs up

in one review it said that there was no logo and in another a con was the logo. Either way i think thats the case for me

thanks for taht second case, but the door is not for me. I also dont like the side panel fan. and more money. but nonetheless its appreciated :beard:

Will a micro atx fit in this? I know its smaller and it should, but the holes might not line up
