I would say the HAF because i like how it looks better and its large fans should keep it quieter and cooler, but it really depends on what you like the looks of more.

Looks are strictly personal preference i guess.. Like personally, i find the HAF series among the ugliest cases (922 is less ugly as compared to the 932, again personal opinion).. That way the Tempest Evo is much smarter.. Both provide similar cooling i guess although the HAF with lesser but bigger fans should be quieter (not sure).. Personally if i need to choose strictly among those two, i'd choose the Tempest.. But given the same price bracket and no restrictions, i'd go for the CM 690 II Advanced..

Or should I get the CoolerMaster Storm Sniper Black Edition ?

If I would buy a Storm Sniper BE, would the temperature lower on my GPU? It is 75celsius at idle at the moment.

I have some noname p.o.s case, and the HD4850 from Sapphire.

EDIT: Did you mean in your previous post that it would lower the temps?

The thing is I don`t know how to reapply the TIM .

I forgot to add, my current case pretty much no more room, has a 120x 38 mm fan on the side and has 80x80 on the rear and one 80x80 at the HDDs.

I tried that profile thingy, I set it to 40%, now my card is 66C at idle, it is better a bit.
I just need to get a can of compressed air from somewhere :D

PS: My PC is full of dust, no dust filters that is.

Arctic Silver has a good set of instructions for their particular products:

A youtube search turns us a couple promising videos, too.

Sniper has enough room for all your components and its cooling is great.. It has got dust filters also so need not worry about that..

First of all you should look for airflow directions and amount of it. I guess both Tempest EVO and Storm Sniper have the same air flow and noise ...
I would go for Tempest EVO because it is 20$ less and in my opinion it has better looking.(Beauty is relative for each human being)

I don`t really like the look of the Tempest Evo.
