this is probably the best m-atx case you can buy. it has excellent airflow and is really nicely designed. you can fit an aio water cooler in it too if you choose to do that in the future so it gives you options.

nice those are both really nice cases i might lean more towards the arc mini just because it looks like it has slightly more interior space to work with
