Which case should I buy? The title pretty much says it all.
I can get the Carbide 400R for $91.29 tax+shipping included, while the Phantom 410 for $124.93.
Arguments for which case to get would be nice, thanks!
Upgrading from a Storm Scout with Silver Arrow HSF.

**EDIT** I've thought about the 500R too. I can get it for 120$. So basically, 500R White vs Phantom 410 White. If I'm buying the 500R, I need to make sure it FITS with the 200m fan, using Silver Arrow (160mm long).

400R hands down i own the full size phantom its pretty sick but honestley for a mid sized case 400r has insane cable managment! i just did a build with that like 3 weeks ago and cable managment was a dream and build quality is outstanding! 400r has my vote!

I would look at the 500R in White instead. You get a 200mm side fan to help cool your video card. More interior space and better room for a dual rad.

Honestly it depends on how you like the looks of the cases. Both cases don't really have a huge advantage over the other, other than the price difference.

Hmmm, I'm not sure about the 500R because I have the HSF Silver Arrow, and it might not fit with the 200m fan on the side, so it would be a waste if I buy the 500R

As a guy who owned a 400r, owns a 500r currently and has seen enough of the phantom 410, I can tell you that either case will be good for you. I would hands down get the phantom 410 if it were the same price as the 400r (which it normally is).The phantom 410 and 500r have a bit more room at the top for the H100 and similar radiators than the 400r. The phantom 410 is about an exact match for the 500r in terms of functionality and feature (7 expansion bays instead of 8, a bit smaller, no fan on the side) and even cools 1c cooler at stock. It's a cut above the 400r due to more space for radiators and hdd cages that can be removed. The 500r feels a bit more study than the 400r as well. Like I said, normally I'd be saying the Phantom 410 is your winner, but being $30+ more than the 400r, it should be priced in line with the 500r and in that case the 400r wins and the best choice is the 500r overall. if you are in the US 48 the phantom 410 is $99.99: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146085 Any of these is going to be a nice upgrade from the storm scout. And the hsf would pose no issues in the 500r. The cases are wider than they look and have a good amount of space in every way.

Hmmm, I think I'll buy the 500R instead of the Phantom 410, cuz I can get it for 120$ shipped, which is a bit cheaper than the Phantom 410. And the 500R has better cooling and has dust filters. It also is a bigger case, but in terms of looking, the Phantom is a lot nicer. And the heatsink-fan clearance still makes me unsecure about buying the 500R with the 200mm fan on the side. I checked some reviews and the HSF clearance was 180mm but it didn't mention if it was with the fan or not. I want proof, a picture will totally convince me. I'm still looking for people's opinion, please tell me your ideas!

case side panel is moved out more to give room and space for taller heatsinks, and wider gpu coolers.
Watch this review of the 500R, as you see the side fan is on and he is using the Noctua cooler inside.
