    I am building I THINK a rig with the following.

    i8700k - super mild OC
    ATX MB (not sure which yet, still researching) will be asking in MOBO section soon.
    Fan to go with CPU
    1060 GPU
    (2) m.2 hds
    32GB ram
    (1) 4tb WD Black drive
    550-650W PS (I don't think I need this much, but rather have it and spend the extra $20 - $40 on it

    Don't need RGB lighting. Don't need to see anything. Preferably black.

    Any thoughts on a simple nice black case with decent cooling?

    Thanks

    Yep... ME AGAIN!! :) I am a pretty basic guy.. Just something that is relatively cheap and don't need window or RGB lighting.. Just something to hold the parts and black preferably. I would like it to have the ability to stay cool as well.

    NcaseM1 would work nicely here. Not the cheapest case but they really easy to build in and fit all your parts in a nice small package. You would need to change to a SFX PSU and itx mobo though.

    Corsair's budget-oriented line are no-frills, well built, and inexpensive. I've enjoyed my builds in them.

    Any particular one you like better? Which is their budget line?

    Thanks

    I used and enjoyed the Carbide 200r and 300r. Their model lineups have probably changed a bit in the interim, but the Carbide series should be worth a look.

    Why buy at tower case! just build one out of wood and stick a fan on top job done then put it under your desk.

    Fractal Design Define S - Sleek, solid, and silent, plus it often goes on sale and can be found for around $50. I went from a full tower to this and have not missed the extra space, even with 280mm and 120mm radiators. The soundproofing material isn't a gimmick - it makes a noticeable difference.

    Define R6 gets my vote, best I have ever used. I had a Define S as well, but it was a little cramped and not as versatile.
