CM HAF 912 or DIYPC Adventurer-9601G

Hello everyone. I use this site all the time for help, but I think I finally found a something not already addressed here. I'm building a new gaming PC and have everything picked out except the case. I was pretty set on the CM HAF 912, but then I saw today that newegg has a combo deal for $40 off when you buy the asrock z77 extreme4 MB with the DIYPC Adventurer-9601G case. I was already going to buy the extreme4, so now I'm wondering which of these two cases to buy. Problem is, there are no reviews for the DIYPC so I really don't know if it's a good quality case at all. It has some nice features that the HAF 912 doesn't (USB 3.0, side window, black interior, case fan controls, more stock fans, it's GREEN!!!), but I don't know how good the airflow is or what quality fans it has. I want it to be as quiet as possible. Also, the DIYPC website won't load, so that's a little sketchy. So, any advice/opinions/experience you guys have would be much appreciated. Thank you.

I don't have any experience with the DIYPC case, but a lot of times those combo deals are in order to get rid of one of the items that don't sell well. Or maybe just stock they are trying to clear. I can, however, vouch for the HAF 912 being a very good quality case for the money.

I think you should get the HAF 912, it's cheaper and has a great build quality but as clutchc says maybe the DIYPC is not a best selling case.
You can get the NZXT Tempest 410, good quality, USB 3.0, massive airflow and excellent cable management, and looks kinda cool.

I did end up going with the HAF 912. I couldn't get myself to buy a case i didn't know anything about just because it looked cooler. Plus, I had already bought a CM Megaflow fan for the 912 :) .
