hey guys , i am getting a new gaming build below are my specs of choice, i am torn about the case , i need something that would provide very good air cooling . my case of choice was the NZXT Tempest Evo case but somebody suggested the Cooler Master CM 690 Advanced II and its starting to grow on me so i am torn between it and the NZXT Tempest Evo case.

on one hand the cooler master looks very good but has three fans (one in take in the front ,two exhaust one in the rear and one in the top) ,but if i add another one on the side panel it will be equal in price the tempest

on the other hand the tempest has about six fans (two in take in the front,two exhaust in the top ,one on the rear panel and one on the side).

so please advice me what should i do , i am going to buy tomorrow or the next day and i need a final decision

cooler master should be a bit quieter

have you checked any of the corsair cases? The 600t looks really nice, especially in White.
