I would say equal in cooling although the DF comes with more fans. The doors are made of plastic, borrowed from a newegg review "The goofy plastic doors are difficult to open, they are pointless and the plastic clips are almost broken after using them 1 or 2 times. Ridiculous design covering the drive bays." It is just hard to make some people Happy!

Antec DF series stole the crown from the HAF series of being the most ugly case(s) IMO.. Anyway, sticking to the query, Rolli has explained everything pretty nicely.. So if those two are your only options, then you are safe to pick the one which looks best to you..

From specs DF85 "Maximum graphics card size: 12.5" / 318 m"

You already got the answer for that regarding the 1200 in your previously posted query i guess.. As with the DF-85, the answer is the same i.e. yes..

You again.! Anyway, hopefully your great case confusion ends with this thread.. There are quite a few cases with a red theme.. For example, Lancool PC-K62, Silverstone FT02-R, HAF 932 red etc.. What is your budget.?
