Performance wise i'd go for the 650D but seeing as those cases all perform so closely maybe you should ask you wife which one she likes the most as its the only part she will see.

Although you may pick the best cooled case it maybe to noisy or big for her liking. She might not like the design/colour scheme. Cases are very personal purchases.
What im saying is that all those cases are good so just let her pick one she likes.

She does like decently quiet. Nothing too large and easy to clean dust off. She also wants it to be easy to work on (for me... Lol).

If you want a media reader, blu ray drive, and fan controller, you're SOL with the Arc, as it only has two 5.25" bays. As a guy who has both the Arc Mini and the 600T, I'd say go with the 600T in this instance. You can get that case whisper quiet with adequate cooling.

That 650D looks real enticing and still sleek.

I just talked to her and she likes the contrast of the 600T, but would rather have that on tge inside. So maybe too clunky looking for her. She liked the Fractal and 650D in terms of looks. Don't know why she didn't mention the Lian considering the simularities.
