Need a Case Recommendation

Hi, I have been searching around for a case for a new system that I will be building, and am in need of a good mid tower or full tower, that is in the 100-200 dollar range, I am ok with spending a little over 200 dollars, but that seems a bit excessive for a case. I would need to have compatibility for a 240mm radiator, because I plan on using an H100i to cool my cpu. Also, this is much more of a personal preference, but I absolutely hate side panel fan mounts and side panel ventilation, unless it actually looks good, not like most cases where it is just a bunch of holes poked into a side panel, and some are bigger for the fan mount. But, I am rambling, so my spec list is as follows:

Intel Core i7 4770K
Asus Maximus VI Hero Motherboard
Asus GTX 760 DCU2OC
Corsair H100i
G.Skill Ripjaws X 16GBs (2x8G 1866
Corsair AX760i
WD Black 1TB 7200RPM HDD
Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SSD
(Extra fans are TBD until I figure out the case situation)

P.S. If you have any other recommendations in terms of other components, feel free to say so

P.S.S. This is a gaming and productivity rig, so I would like a case that isn't excessively obtrusive

The switch 810 is still a great case with lots of room

Thanks, I think I am going to go with the H440, it goes well with my color scheme and is a case with nice clean lines, but still manages to pull of that eye popping look
