If you lean more towards the understated and relatively inexpensive side of the case market as opposed to the type who look at the Thermaltake Level 10 and can't wait until they can pick one up, then check out The Tech Report.  They've just wrapped up a review of Fractal Design's Core 3000 enclosure which you should be able to pick up for less than $70.  Outwardly it recalls the Antec Three Hundred, especially the bottom mounted PSU and it sports a similar price.  Inside you will find decent air cooling, the mounts can accept 120mm or 140mm fans, with a pair on top, bottom (one is for the PSU) and front with one on the left panel as well.  The Tech Report did find the size of the case a little restrictive when installing wires and cards, even though it can fit a full ATX board and large coolers.  Head over to see the full review.

"Fractal Design has a new budget enclosure that costs just $65. We take a closer at the Core 3000 to see if it warrants a spot on your list of candidate cases."

Here are some more Cases & Cooling reviews from around the web:

It looks a little like the Antec 300 from the outside though,....
