Hi guys, I cannot decide betweend those 3 cases: Define 7 , Meshify 2 and Corsair 5000D. I want to use a

Who has any experiences with those cases?

In my opinion they have following problems:

Define 7: bad airflow because of the "closed" front, radiator on top may causes issues with your motherboard

Meshify 2: front looks cheap (plastic? ) , radiator on top may causes issues with your motherboard

Corsair 5000D: mostly only 120mm fans possible, you cannot use radiator in front with a radiator in side panel
 
Define 7: bad airflow because of the "closed" front
i have a Fractal Design that uses the same type of front-side vents with a closed panel.
with nicer fans in place plenty of cool air is brought in.
though of course an open mesh front would provide a bit less obstruction.
Meshify 2: front looks cheap
totally agree. ugly front panel made of odd shaped plastic.
Corsair 5000D: mostly only 120mm fans possible
2x 140mm in either top or side but only 120mm in the rear.
i don't exactly like the idea of side vs front but it works out fine with a radiator exhausting out of the top and the sides as intakes.
but i won't go for anything that doesn't allow 140mm all the way around.

all three of these cases offer adequate spacing between the top mounting points and the motherboard for a radiator plus fans.
i don't really think i'd choose either though.

so far the be quiet! Silent Base 802 is the best option i've seen out of the last couple years.
