I'm at a loss for finding a PC case, the cases I come across look so promising and then the reviews say it either has terrible airflow or the material it was made out of is bad. I was looking at the NIGHTHAWK 117 https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147252&Description=nighthawk%20117&cm_re=nighthawk_117-_-11-147-252-_-Product not only was it on sale but it looks like a great PC case. The problem is, is that some of the reviews say the case actually started to smoke because of the wiring. I just need a case that has great airflow, a fan control on the case would be nice, and the case itself just isn't ugly. I don't really like the way NZXT designs their cases, and my build consists of an ATX motherboard, so the case can't be small. I was thinking maybe 50-80 USD? I don't want to spend a ton of money on a case. I'd prefer to save that for parts. Thank you to anyone who replies with a recommendation.

This is what I am using. It is in your price range and has great airflow with filters. If you can spend a little more the next step up is a Mesify C which has great reviews and a power supply shroud. https://pcpartpicker.com/product/ZHmxFT/fractal-design-focus-g-black-atx-mid-tower-case-fd-ca-focus-bk-w

I personally love the Corsair crystal 280x rgb due to its beautiful lighting and dual chamber design that helps greatly with cable management.
