Some cases worth of mention:
Fractal Core 3000 ($70): Solid mid tower design for those working on a budget.
Fractal Define Mini ($100): mATX design for those looking to a super quiet case, same great quality as the larger define models
Fractal Node 304 ($90): Current holder of the Computer Ed Golden Mic for cases this is a nice balnce in size for an mITX build. Large enough to allow some decent cooler options but small enough to enjoy the size reduction an mITX build brings.
Coolermaster N200 ($85): Another good option of an mATX build
Silverstone TJ08B-E ($110): This fits in line with the Arc Mini and N200, pricing and size. The Silverstone case flips the case around and delivers a virtual jet stream of cooling for the CPU with a 180mm intake in direct line with the CPU area and 120mm exhaust. The choice between these three cases at the end of the day is really about style, they all three are awesome choices.
Caselabs Mercury S3 (starting at $200): The term I use to describe this type of case is a Super ITX. The case is as big or even a bit bigger than some mATX cases. The extra size is there to allow a huge choice of cooling options, both air and custom liquid loop. The price is not low but the options for building and paint are amazing straight form the factor. 100% aluminum construction all made in the US. The case has no rivets, every part can be tore down for modding or custom painting. This also means you can change the case from the original configuration at a later date. Every part of the case can be bought independently for repairs or to change the layout. The price for the case may be high but for ultimate choices in building your system it is near impossible to beat.
