Added Corsair Crystal 460x. Thanks for the request Jack.

:salute:

Not sure if it matters but 570x is their flagship on that line. The difference between all 3 towers iirc is, 570x RGB comes with 3 front RGB fans, 460x RGB with two and 460x with one.

I have the 570x on the to do list, just couldn't get to it at lunch today. The 460x has 3x 120 RGB front fans also.

From what I can see it seems like a good case so long as you don't have a need for a lot of HDD's. It's also not a big contender in the watercooling world. We've reviewed other Anidees cases and were found to be of very good quality. I love the tempered glass look. Some other similar cases to consider are the Corsair Crystal 460x RGB, 570x RGB, or In Win 509 if you still require a front 5.25" ODD bay.

Things are slowing down at work for me so if you have a case that you love and would recommend it to other users, here's the place to do that. HMU!

I just sold Corsair 400C, can easily recommend it as a compact ATX case, not big but can easily install watercooling. I was using it with 2x AIO ( 240+280 rads ) but on top I recommend to use slim fans ( I was using Gelid fans ). Nice design and price is reasonable. It's about the same as some other Corsair cases which now are being improved like 460x.

Couple of days ago I've got Fractal Core 500. I'm still trying to decide on cooling but can already recommend this case as really good for ITX build. There is space for 240/280 rad on top and if you really want then can install 120+240 rads together. There is also space for probably any graphics card. Right now I'm using GTX1080Ti FE and there is still couple of cm space.
Case has magnetic anti-dust filters, can install 3 SSD/HDD, has 3.5/5.25" bay which can be removed.
It doesn't have window but if you pack all the hardware with 240/280 rad then you can't see anything anyway.
It's also quite cheap, $70 in local stores inc tax and shipping ( less in US ).

Here are the best reviews I've found on them.

http://www.overclockers.com/anidees-ai-crystal-case-review/

And

https://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/7883/rosewill-cullinan-mid-tower-chassis-review/index.html

I have built in another of the better Rosewill cases and it was great for the money. These two cases have similar features and I would assume similar qualities. If it were my money I would probably save the extra $40 and get the Rosewill (#2) and put that $40 into the GPU or SSD.

I think both are good choices. Also I should mention the Anidees uses a tempered glass side panel which will likely be easier to clean. So that may be a factor for you.
