Any case that can fit an ATX motherboard should be fine. Even that cooler isn't huge so I would say everything should fit fine.

You should be alright with any case, really - I would check the measurements of the ASUS Silent Knight CPU cooler as that will most likely be the main hindrance if the case isn't deep enough. I had that issue with my Akasa Venom CPU Cooler on my Q6700/Q8400

As long as the case isn't designed for mATX motherboards (micro ATX) you will be cool.

I'm sure a few more people with a bit of time on their hands will be able to recommend you a huge plethora of cases :)

One of my personal favourites, Antec Three Hundred, will do the job

I love my Antec 900-2.

The 300-2 is a good case. Would be hard to go past :)

CoolerMaster make good looking and very strong cases

Knocked mine off the desk (About 1m high) when I was drunk and fun fighting and it landed on its head, apart from slightly misshaped HDD shelves, everything survived 100%, it was turned on at the time and all HDDs were fine

Any of the CoolerMaster HAF models are superb. I have the 922.

Well any ATX case would fit anything for home use.
