EDIT: Ok, the more I stared at the CM case, and compared it to the Xclio.. i think it is growing on me... i kinda like it...
a 360mm fan can move air, but does it have sufficient space for that air to flow? if it's just blowing on your hard drives it's useless...that giant side fan may move some air, but to keep it silent it probably moves at 500 rpm...it will push the same amount as a very nice 120mm.
the big difference between the two cases though is that the cooler master is much higher build quality, supports SSD, black interior, very nice and efficient air flow, and fans that actually push a good amount of air while also giving you a place to add more fans if needed.
