So I am looking to upgrade my PC, and am also picking a new case. I'm just gonna be using the AMD wraith cooler. Which one of these is the best in terms of airflow and/or upgradability? Or if there is another similar-looking case in the same price range that's better, what is it? https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146181 https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146087 https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16811139074

Also here is my future build: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/VjLhBP

Are you starting from scratch? There's no reason to get the FX-series at this point, at least the 6000 parts. Ryzen's almost out, and the i3 and KL Pentiums outperform your chosen chip in almost every scenario.

But to address your real question, the Phantom moves the most air and has the most space. Other options are a Phanteks Eclipse or AERO-1000, though those don't have quite as much cooling potential.

Thanks for the feedback, I'm trying to budget my build while getting the most performance, and at the $100 price point, the FX is the best option for me. Also, I am team red. As for the cases, I have done some research. And by that I mean quickly looking at the reviews and then just looking at how pretty (or not pretty) it is. The Phantom 410 is definitely the nicest-looking case in the $100 price range.
