Default Best Case for airflow under $150

Powersupply is taken care of.

Looking for 2x120mm fans to flow some good air. The Antec P180 is neat in the way that the powersupply is on the bottom and isolated from the mobo but I dont care for the aesthetics so much.

What is everyone's suggestions?

2x 120mm
2x 92mm
The top is basically a mesh
The front is all mesh

Any more ventilation and it will be case-less. :beard:

The Antec P180 is nice (3 x 120mm) blowhole and seperate compartment for PSU. It's a quiet case. You will probably need a 4-pin ATX extension though.
