Depends. More holes are not always better. Their Dark Fleets are pretty horrible when it comes to cooling.

I still prefer my Corsair 500R as these cases are either bland or ugly.
 
I like the 1100 also, but would probably prefer a version without the big window.

The Raidmax looked like gimmicky junk.
CM has too many "oops"es.
The Fractal Designs and Silverstone cases also didn't quite "get it right," at least not for me; but I could probably make them work. The aesthetics were good on them.

Didn't care fore any of these. All seemed boxy and without personality. Whatever the price point is for these, it is probably too high. Hopefully, the next segment will show the HAF XM or the NZXT Phantom 410. These are supposed to be gaming cases yet, they lack most of the features of an enthusiast case. Heck, I'd pick the Rosewill CHALLENGER over any of these and it's only fifty bucks.

I've had numerous cases including the Antec 900 and 300. I just upgraded to the Antec 1100 for my main PC and have been extremely pleased with it. I mounted 2 more 120mm fans behind the front panel and the cooling is nothing short of amazing. It's a relatively simple looking case, but it's elegance is in it's simplicity. It does everything exceedingly well. Installation was a breeze and future modifications will be easy with the extra interior space. You'd have to pay double the cost of this case to get something that exceeds it significantly in features. An all around great case, and I'd definitely recommend it over any other case in the $80-120 range.

Unless a case can properly house a 2x120 (H100) or larger radiator I'm not with you. Also, I don't like any windows with 'fan holes' (anything) drilled into a clear side panel.
