Which case is the better choice. Help

hi, iv bin looking at cases for a couple days now and i cant make up my mind. Maby you can help me with some pros and cons of them. Narrowed it down to these two. I dont really care about usb 3.0. All im really trying to do is cool down my Gpu. so the more fans the better i presume?!

leaning towards the CM690 II because its cheaper an holds more fans. Anything i need to know? has the fractal Arc got better cable management?

More about which case choice help
  1. I have a Fractal Design Define XL and it is the best case I ever Had. Quality Materials and good cable management for their cases. Also check out the Antec 900 series if you are looking for some serious cooling at a good price.
  2. The CM 690 II is a good and popular case, so if you like and want to save the money then I don't see why you shouldn't get it.

    The Coolermaster case is really good. I went with an Antec 902 because I wanted a big fan on top and I don't have much room on the sides so for me case positioning was an important factor. It also helped finding a used one at less than half the price.
  4. i just found a second hand CM690 II advanced for R600. Gonna meet with the guy tomorrow to check it out. Said he bought it late 2010, Thats not too old i dont think. Hes still got the box and all the bits.
  5. go for the fractal , the quality is there and 100,987,695,213 other peeps have the cm ..... dont be " that guy "
