Question Help choosing new case

Hello all

I'm looking into the market for a new computer case but can't seem to find the dream machine :/

I have looked at making my own case but do not have the time.

Hopefully you can help.

What I am looking for:
Mid Tower for mATX motherboard
2 X 3.5 external exposed drives
enough room on the top for the XSPC Raystorm 750 rs240mm.
black.

don't mind about fan coloring as i can easily replace those.

if it is available in AUS that would be great.

price range: $50 - $75

Any help would be greatly appreciated

i'll recommend the phantom 410. it's a mid tower case (even though it looks bigger then mid sized) and can be found in black.
unfortunately it's out of your price range.

you should check out the Zalman Z11 and the Cooler Master Elite 430.
note that the Elite 430 feels a little cheap, but it's also only priced at 60 dollars.

I'd say the Antec P280 but that's waaaaay out of your price range. There are cheap cases then there are cheaply made cases. Be careful what you get. You may regret it later...

true. the case for my first ever build was a RAIDMAX Scorpio.
i regraded it soon after, because it just felt so plastic and crappy made.
so i upgraded to a HAF 932 6 month later and gave the Scorpio away for free to a friend
