Both have good reviews. Both seem to be very cost-efficient, budget cases with similar basic features and comparable specs. Both seem to have great cable management/airflow (relative to price point of course). Both seem compatible for my build (http://pcpartpicker.com/p/OdI8)(which I'm still modifying, but I think I'm close).
Looking at the NZXT, it is obviously more aesthetically pleasing. I mean, just look at that thing. Wow. But, I'm afraid that I'll order it based too much on the looks and end up with a less sturdy case. I'd really like something to last me 4-5 years.
The Fractal, on the other hand, is very plain-looking but looks very well built. I just feel like it will be somewhat sturdier. It also seems to be awesome for quietness, which is something I'd like.
So any opinions between the two? Is the NZXT as flimsy as it looks? Is the Fractal worth going for for the sturdiness and sound-suppressing features despite it's boring look? Or does the NZXT have comparable sturdiness and quietness? If the Fractal's only advantage is Thanks in advance. If needed, here's the build I'll be working with again: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/OdI8.
