Why do you not want USB 3.0?

And i'd stick with the Coolermaster HAF series, standing for High Air Flow.
They have usb 2.0 AND 3.0..

CM HAF cases are awesome, I have the 932 and it is awesome, lots of space and cooling is great, lots of space for fans

That's no reason to not pick a case...just don't use that port until you upgrade your motherboard...

Other than theres a bunch of fail there, The corsair cases are not good for air cooling.

The problem with usb3.0 is most cases require you to run usb cables to the back panel outputs of your mobo.
