Neither of those got very good reviews. Unless the looks of those cases is more important to you than cooling I would not get either of those.

Case looks are so subjective though. What some people love other think is flat out fugly. I tend to narrow down my choices then watch a ton of reviews to make sure they dont get bad ratings.

Using that system is how I ended up with PC 011 dynamic xl. Given the price point of the cases you listed I would suggest to you the non XL. But then I like cube cases, you might think they are fugly :)

My case requirements go in this order:

1. It has to fit all my gear comfortably, including cable management aspects.
2. Good cooling, with options for upgrades like liquid cooling.
3. It's gotta look nice. But not get "trapped in time." A good design shouldn't age the way beige did and RGB will.
4. Moddable. Even if I don't want to do a casemod right away, it's still good to ensure that it can at least provide a base for something cool in the future.

Guess I should clarify. I recently updated my wifes rig and her case is old. And she really really likes mine... you know what happens next... I need a new case lol but she will flip if I spend to much on a case.

I do want good airflow. Currently mine is full rgb. Kids love it so... I got as follows
Asus vi hero
Ryzen 7 1700x
Trident z neo
Gigabyte gtx 1070(3 fan)
Evga 650 ga fully modular
Permafrost 240 aio
4x 120 Silverstone rgb

Current case is fractal meshify c (which I love). But as I said earlier.. she loves it.. :/

I have a CoolerMaster Stacker 810. Overloaded with far too many storage drives, expansion cards (all slots used), a huge air cooler, card reader, 3 optical drives, a 5.25 bay usb and audio hub, and enough wiring to make a new Las Vegas, and yet there's still room for multiple additional hamster wheels if I needed more power. It's uglier than Satan on a bad hair day, but unlike him, it stays cool. It fits more than anyone needs. All intakes are filtered. If you were crazy, or a bootleger, it has TWELVE 5.25 bays up front. It was reasonably priced. And it came with lockable casters more than a decade before Apple released their $700 ones.
