I personally like the Windtunnel better, because it has more ventilation holes. And it looks more simple...probably easier to mod.

Windtunnel, because the other one just has a huge fan on plexi not really my style the other has a really good intake from the left that is.

I actually like the second one better, but if you are running hot video cards or SLI the windtunnel would be better. They both have side access HDD slots which is my biggest thing I look at when getting a case.
