Hi, I am working on the final touches of building my new PC and I decided to change the case. Both these cases are around the same price and have about all the same features. I just want to know if anyone sees something that I might have overlooked that makes one case superior to the other. Also, what makes the Cougar Evolution a Full Tower case and the Storm Enforcer a Mid Tower case when they are within 1 inch of the same size? Thanks in advance.

Here are the 2 cases:

Storm Enforcer (PC Part Picker Link)
Cougar Evolution (PC Part Picker Link)

Storm Enforcer (Newegg Link)
Cougar Evolution (Newegg Link)

As I am posting this I am watching these 2 videos by Newegg showcasing the 2 cases.

Cougar Evolution (Video Link)

And here is the PC I'm building if anyone is interested.

at this budget range, id rather focus on increasing system performance rather than focus it on a case

now it performs better and is cheaper

but if you are planning to build a budget workstation, id go back to fx. otherwise a i5 is better

Best solution
