I couldnt answer this by giving you a brand, just look for an all aluminum case with plenty of places to put fans and store wires away.

120 mm with thermo control .I had a Case with 2 rear 80mm
2 front 80mm a top 80 mm a side 80 mm that was noisier than crap . Not that great of cooling iether .The Antec P160 case i mentioned has 1 - 120 mm front intake and 1 - 120mm rear exhaust that do a much better job of cooling with less noise
