Either one of those would be good. I have the 300 with two 120mm Rosewill intake fans added to the front and love it. My video cards temps are 10c lower than they were in my old case.

Is there any space behind the 300's mobo tray for running wires? I know the 900 is tight from first hand experience but its still do-able. Was curious about the 300.

I'll edit this post with pics in a minute. I think there is enough room.

Edit: it's not allot of room but it may be enough. Here's a pic of it.

The side panel is kind of indented so you have out to the edge of the case to work with. In this pic the wires could go most of the way out over the area highlighted in red without a problem.



I wouldn't say the 300 is great for wire management but in my opinion it is good enough.
