Which is better for air flow:

BitFenix Shinobi or Corsair Carbide 300R?

The Corsair is on offer at the moment, and seems a decent case - I like the look of it. Do people like it generally? Reviews seem okay I'm just not sure! Wondered if any one has had experience with the Corsair at all?

Thanks

Shinobi air flow is a bit weak...

300r is liked by reviewers. Neither would be a bad choice to be honest, go with which you like more xD

P.s. your phantom is better than both if this is for you...

Yeah its a shame, because I do like the look of the Shinobi, but it's just not great for air cooling.

Yes this is for me, I do like how good the Phantom is being spacious and cool, but I just dont like how it looks and its a bit big for taking to/from Uni...

The bitfenix website stats a maximum cooler height of 181.1mm
Have a measure of your D14 on your board to see what it comes to. The noctua website says 160mm without fans but i assume the fan does not stick out much?

EDIT: ignore me, im looking at the XL :s
