Between those two, it's more or less just about preference. Flip a coin, because there isn't that much different between them except amount of drive bays and fans.

good point, looks like the first one (PC-7B) has 2 less fans, im not sure i need a ton of cooling, and 2 fans vs. 4 would be a lot more quiet right?

Considering the 7B is two 120s vs the four 80mms then yeah it should be quieter. I have a A60 which is almost identical to the 61 and yeah, the 120 would be preferable....but i got it for $30CAN off classifieds so I can't complain

Agreed, regardless of the case fans, and the drive bays, Lan Li makes a great case. very sturdy and well put together. Not to mention they hold in sound very well.
