Antec and cooler master are the two top brands in my opinion. Just make sure you get a big enough case so you can add or upgrade parts in the future. Sorry man I am not too familiar with any UK localized shops except for bestbuy.

I would recommend the HAF X from Cooler Master b/c I have it, and it's one of the few cases that support this motherboard. It's a E-ATX motherboard meaning Extended. Not many cases support it, but the HAF X does and you won't pay out the butt for it.

More importantly, do you even need a $350 motherboard? There are some fantastic MOBO's that are under $200 that will give you the same result depending on how many video cards you plan on running. But if you're still set on that overpriced Asus, you'll need a full-tower case that supports extended ATX motherboards. First cases that come to mind are the HAF X and the 800d. Filter out cases via Newegg.

You should do a little more research before posting this. This motherboard is an extended motherboard, meaning there aren't many cases out there that support this motherboard. There are starting to be more motherboards like this, but not enough cases that support them.

You can always try newegg, and PCPartPicker. PCPartPicker is really useful if you don't know much about building a computer, and determining whether or not one part is compatible with another. It does that for you, it will let you pick your core components then when you pick your case I'm pretty sure if I remember correctly there is a box you can check somewhere on there where it will only show computer cases that all your components will fit into!

Newegg, is usually where I would buy my pc parts (or mac). It has great reviews and what not. Has a lot of things to pick from, and also has a very in-depth tutorial on how to build a computer (Video Tut Part 1).

Hope I helped!

IN WIN, NZXT have a few great cases that support EATX. I personally don't like NZXT, but that's because I despise plastic cases, and they have a lot of plastic on their cases. They are more visually appealing than IN WIN, but IN WIN has great features, and usually more stock fans. These are alternatives to the HAF X which is probably your best bet. One of the few things geneticz and I agree on.

We just have complete different taste. =) We both know a good bit, but we have our taste and experiences with different companies. But, the HAF X will more than likely your best choice. Unless you plan on throwing $300 on a case. Pretty much your two BEST the HAF X or the Corsair 800D. The HAFX is more than a $100 cheaper, and I personally own one. It's beyond amazing, and the mods you can do to this case is just amazing. There is plenty of fans, and it's pretty rugged. The cable is fairly easy, and easy to keep tidy. Any GPU will fit in this case, along with any Motherboard. It's a beast........

I have an IN WIN Dragon Rider, and IN WIN Ironclad, and an NZXT Phantom. I like the phantom the least of the three, but I like the HAF X more than all of them. So if you can't afford a HAF X get the Dragon Rider. But go for the HAF X because it's freaking amazing.
