i don't know what case to use for my RGB build, i want transparent window and front intake fans.
Needs to accept atx mobo, preferably perforated front intake with 2 or 3 fans, side window.
The window, should it be clear or tinted?
My first stop would be the CM H500P mesh white https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16811119341. Also thinking of Meshify C https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16811352084, or Enthoo Pro https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?reviews=all&Item=N82E16811854069&ignorebbr=1.
FD Midi R2 https://www.fractal-design.com/home/product/cases/arc-series/arc-midi-r2 if i can find it used (tc11 looking at you!)
Mobo is already chosen the Gigabyte H270 Gaming 3 https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/GA-H270-Gaming-3-rev-10#kf
I would also like to use the Cooler Master MasterAir G100M RGB heatsink, the UFO! https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA9H57EW6461&ignorebbr=1&_ga=2.244105797.1924030450.1539367401-2009401836.1536978024&_gac=1.92024296.1539139631.CjwKCAjwo_HdBRBjEiwAiPPXpOsJKthswD03tNsnLjPfaJmogqzdypTxeX-8j6QokjnYXNBM_9BplhoC2EcQAvD_BwE:punk::punk:

Cases are such a personal thing, you really have to be the one choosing since you have to look at it all the time after!

With that said, I have a Fractal Meshify C, with the dark tint glass. The link you provided showed a lighter tint, which would be really nice I think. I don't have any RGB fans in the front so I can't say how visible they would be, but the inside is nice and clean and was great to build in. It is not as deep as some cases, so depending on your video card and if you want to put a rad in the front, you may want to watch the dimensions.

I have nothing but good things to say about my midi R2, so if you get a deal on one and like it’s looks, then go for it. Unfortunately fractal hasn’t updated it in some time, so if you go new I would probably go to something else. I voted meshify...it suits my style.
