I think that would be my own personal choice, although I'm intrigued to see how the Air performs when it's released... I prefer the look of the Dynamic though, and it's very competitively priced. It is made of steel though, not aluminium, which is what has always made Lian-Li cases so expensive in the past.
I'm looking at both, though everyone and their mother has a dynamic since it's so good hehe.

The Corsair Obsidian 500D might be worth a look also, quite smart looking, although Corsair have (yet again) made some odd design decisions with the PSU shroud which I am not a fan of.
What annoys me about that case is how they restricted top rad compatability to 280/240 even though you can get a 360 up there logically speaking.

I have an r6 currently, my ram's too tall which is why I'm looking for another case.
