I have recently began searching around to begin building my own PC, there are 2 cases that I have seen that appeal to me but I am unsure which one to get as I really don't know much about how the cases etc would affect my build.
The cases are between the 2 below:
Fractal Design Define R4 (Black Pearl) ATX Mid Tower Case or Corsair SPEC-03 Red ATX Mid Tower Case
What I have decided to include in my build are: Intel Core i7-4770k Asus z8z-Pro (V Edition) ATX 1150 Corsair 8gb (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1333 Corsair Force Series GS 128GB 2.5" SSD Seagate Barracuda 1TB3.5" 7200RPM HD GTX 760 2GB Graphics Card Corsair CX 600W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply Lite-On iHAS124-04 DVD/CD Writer
From what I can tell, both cases will fit my build. The issue i have is deciding which will be better in terms of: ease of use, space, cooling, ability to change out parts if required, cable management, part placement and free space afterwards. (and anything else important you guys feel is necessary of a case :P)
Thanks in advance

Get the Corsair 500R. It has great cooling. Instead of the z87 get the z97. For RAM buy 1866 RAM not 1333.
Functionally. it doesn't matter which case you use.
You should get a newer Z97 mobo instead of the Z87. Who knows? You might eventually want a M.2 device in your pc.
