Need a cabinet/case for Asus Crosshair IV Extreme
  

I am buying a new assembled PC for my home. Already bought all its parts including AMD FX-8150 Black Edition and Asus crosshair IV extreme motherboard. now the problem am facing is with the Cabinet. I have bought a Fan meant for large cabinet but the choices i got from my vendor are all small cabinets. And the larger ones are too costly for me. In short if I have to be in the budget then I have to get the smaller cases but my fans will be wasted and i can face cooling problems. So i need suggestion from you all regarding cabinets for my Asus crosshair IV extreme motherboard. please help.
