Default High airflow cases - fall 2019

Gaming case recommendations please for:
# High airflow case with a view to CPU air OCing.
# That will sensibly fit a Noctua NH D15 CPU cooler.
# Will be set up for +ve air pressure.
# Midi or full tower.
# I do not need see through side panels.
# Ideally up to around £100.

Some cases I've looked at:
Cooler Master H500
Corsair Obsidian 750D Airflow Edition
Phanteks Enthoo Pro
Phanteks P600s

I don't know what you mean by +ve air pressure but here: Lian Li Lancool One. Note it has different color versions.

I think he means "positive air pressure in the case", when intake fans combined airflow is greater than exhaust. To prevent dust from entering through the holes.

I was wondering where these terms come from and who uses them. Never heard +ve.

I've been using this: Phanteks Enthoo Pro
No issues with using the NH D15 cooler. spec's noted below.


Not sure about the positive air pressure thingy though...

Same. LOADSA space and seems to run very cool. Case was very easy to work on.

That or even this one, very versatile, guess it'll be my next one.

If you can find one, NZXT Phantom 820.

As long as you can mount a decent number of case fans you can decide yourself if your case has positive, neutral or negative pressure by mounting them accordingly.

2 vs 3 front fan cases, is this a limitation for OCing? I was probably going to go for the Enthoo Pro but the design seems a bit dated compared to say the H500.
