I cannot make up my mind. The antec comes with more fans, better reviews, but the CS is cheaper and has a sexier design.

I currently own a 430 and use to own a 300.
300 - better build construction(thicker steel),bad cable management(use holesaw or dremel)=easy fix,high quality fans(quiet on low).
430 - better cable management,only one included fan,the case is chopped off at top(short)
The Illusion is a steal at that price and a better case overall=no brainer

Yeah it seems everybody complains about the 300's bad cable management, but just like you said, it's a quick fix.

Thanks for your helping out.

Well the illusion is on sale usually it's $70 with no rebate. The challenger is also in that price range.
