Which case is better for my prebuilt computer?
FX8350 (Stock cooler for the moment)
Gigabyte Tri Fan R9 290
Gigabyte 990XA-UD3

The Zalman Z11 Plus comes with: 5 Fans (3 x 120mm and 2 x 80mm)
The Zalman Z12 Plus comes with: 3 Fans (3 x 120mm)

Which one do you like better?

With a single GPU and stock CPU, 3 fans is more than enough for cooling.

Both are sufficient to me, I just want to know which is best for cooling/potential etc.

To be honest they'll perform about the same. The Z11 may win in stock cooling out of the gate, but they are designed very similarly in terms of airflow. If you plan on doing dual GPU setups, the Z12 may be better, as you can intake cool air from the bottom directly at the GPUs.

No problem, enjoy it :)  Since you've decided, I'll let you know I personally prefer the Z12 over the Z11 in looks too :p  but I promise, my recommendation was purely un-biased lol
