I recommend the Coolermaster HAF 932 because it has superior ventilation, airflow, and cooling. The ATCS 840 has a front panel that restricts airflow.

captvicenzo - Both cases are designed for a standard atx motherboard with 7 expansion slots on the rear panel. If you meant drive bays, one extra drive bay will not make any difference for the typical user or gamer. It is very rare for someone to need 11 drive bays.

Of the two , aesthetically I like the first one..
I just did a build with a Silverstone FT-01. A VERY nice case I might add. and its like 170 after rebate on the egg.

good luck

I would be tempted to go for the HAF 932. As mentioned it looks to have superior airflow and looks a better built case than the other model. I've heard a lot of positive reviews about this case so this would be my choice :)

i think as i am going to use my PC for 8 to 10 hours daily , the air flow should be optimized

so as per you will HAF 932 be a better choice than ATCS 840 ?

Yes. The HAF 932 is one of the top rated cases for ventilation, airflow, and cooling.

You asked about a case for your motherboard. Depending on the rest of the components and the intended use of the pc you may not really need a huge beast like the HAF 932. it's quite possible that all you really need is a mid-tower case. I noticed the motherboard you selected has 4 PCI-E slots. Are you going to install 4 video cards operating in Quad SLI mode?
