planning a new build, need help deciding on a case

so I have been looking into putting together a build along these lines http://pcpartpicker.com/user/dragonbud20/saved/4wYo and I was hoping to get some help deciding between the two cases I have narrowed it down to.
The NZXT Switch 810: http://www.nzxt.com/product/detail/111-switch-810-case.html
The Obsidian Series® 750D: http://www.corsair.com/en-us/obsidian-series-750d-full-tower-atx-case

I would love any suggestions people have on the build and case and any help is welcome.

    any particular reason for the H100i over the H110 as the 110 has a bigger rad? Also seeing as the ram you suggested costs slightly more what benefit do I gain by getting that over the corsair?
    Does anybody know if the 750D has fan filters I was hoping to have these but it's not at all a deal breaker.

    The RAM is 2133MHz CL9 with 1.6v while Corsair is (well overpriced :D) 2133MHz CL11 (which is not so good compared to 2133MHz CL9) and 1.5v. Generally G.Skill RAM has better specs out of the box and only 5$ more expensive. H100i has "Corsair link" and should perform pretty similar to H110 (1~3C)
