Default Looking at cases

Ok so if I do well this quarter in college I'm going to get myself a new case with better airflow.

I'm looking at the Antec 900. I've worked with it at work many times and I love it.

Has anyone worked with another case that provides a good amount of airflow?

I personally have COSMOS S case and I honestly think it is one of the best air flow cases out there. When I have all 7 120mm fans + 1 200mm fan working at full I can feel the air flow all around me when i sit in my chair lol (closed case) It went down in price, but still kind of expansive... $200 take a look

If you think this is something you might be interested in, let me know il give you more detailed info on the pros/cons + pics

I have the Antec 1200, so the level up from 900 and i am very happy with the case. Amazing airflow, keeps all my hardware running cool! My cpu doesn't go over 45c even when i have been playing games for hours. 3 intake fans, 2 exhaust and 1 top fan. Great case, costs somewhere around $140CAD (i think)
