CM 690 II VS Antec P280 VS Fractal Design Define R3

Hello everyone,
I know it's not a very fair comparison, but I dont know what would be the best for me since I am going with a pretty hot build and want silence...
My specs are: intel i5 2500K
Scythe Mugen 3
Gigabyte GA-P67X-UD3-B3
2X Gigabyte GTX560 Ti Ultra Durable
Antec High Current 750w
What case would be better considering I am going to overclock the CPU to 4.0 GHz and maybe the graphics cards in the future?
I dont really care about the price (but in the range of the cases that I think about)

  1. R3 has both features,low noise and high airflow.no doubt go with R3.no offence to others :)
  2. No doubt, but from the reviews i have seen the Antec P280 has more space...
    Also, wouldnt the system be too hot in the case? remember,its two GTX560Ti
  3. Well i can tell you for sure the CM690II is not a silent case i have one.
    Not in the same category as the other cases you're considering(which have sound reduction panels.)
    Antec P280 - 3 included fans and lots of space.

    Biggest complaint with Fractal cases is the included fans are underpowered.
    Antec been at this game the longest and the P280 shows it.
    Ability to add 4 more 120mm fans = 2 front intakes and two hdd cage mounts.
  4. davcon, I have read this - http://www.pugetsystems.com/labs/articles/Product-Qualification-Antec-P280-Chassis-122/page3 review but I dont know if the temps which the Antec P280 shows are good and if there are better cases for my need.
    Henestly I dont really know what I want, the only thing I know is that it has to handle the GPU's very well and be pretty silent...
    So what slient Mid tower for SLI would you guys advice me?
