Looking for a midtower for my upcoming pc, I really like the Fractal Design Define R4, but I've heard good things about Lian Li and Corsair.

I'm looking for something that has great Airflow, lots of customization options (I'm a sucker for LED's and colourful fans) and a side window, also potential water cooling (my current system is water cooled, and I heard EVGA cards run the best when they're water cooled)

My specs include:
Asus P8Z77-V Deluxe (Purchased)
Intel i7-2600k (Purchased)
CM Hyper 212 Plus
2x EVGA GTX680 FTW 4GB (purchased)
32gb G.Skill X Series (purchased)
Corsair HX850w (purchased)
LG Blu-ray Drive (purchased)
Fan Controller (purchased)
2x 2.5in SSD's (purchased)
2x 3.5in HDD's (purchased)

So, now I'm just deciding on a case. I have a backup choice in case I can't think of anything, the Phantom 820, but I'd really like to get a midtower cause I prefer smaller cases.

May I ask how the Switch 810 is like? I just saw your list of stuff and noticed that. I've got the Phantom 820 on my shopping list, and I've seen the switch a lot. I already own the HAf X and I'm bored of it.
 
1) the 810 natively fits a 3x140mm rad on top and a double rad on the bottom.
2) I personally dont like the honeycomb fan grills and quite like the vent design of the 810. Additionally it is a nice feature if you need to air cool for a while and then turn to water.In terms of cable routing, i couldn’t have asked for more. The NZXT Switch 810 Case is jam packed with excellent features and it looks amazing.For the price it's hard to beat imo.
