It's hard to decide cuz both are good & nice looking cases. It comes down to what kind of build you're doing. If you're building a fully optimized hybrid or DIY water cooled rig then I'll go with the H440. It's well insulated & quiet. It also comes with a PSU shroud & an optimal radiator placement option. If you're planning to build a rig with optical disc drive & also want something with good airflow then I'll go with 450D.
