Here is my budget build, need suggestions on a case. I want to make sure that it has sufficient cooling and doesn't give me problems out of the box. Here are my two main options but i am open to other suggestions. What do you guys think.

Also taking suggestions for the mobo/rest of build

From what I can see, the DIYPC and Thermaltake cases are the better of the three for cooling. However, it depends on your cpu cooler and the length of gpu you want to use. Also if you want to use extra fans, you'll need to see how many case fans you want use up to. Desk/area space is something to think about too.

In terms of no problems out of the box, it's either you're lucky or not. I got a Raijintek Metis plus case that had immediate issues with the built into 3.5mm audio jack. Since I contacted the manufacturer immediately (a few days after I received it), I showed them video proof of the issue with proof of purchase and got a free replacement hub for the audio.
