Please help I'm having a really hard decision deciding between the 2! Why would you choose the one you chose?

two very different case, one focused on silence, the other on providing reasonable enthusiast water cooling potential on a budget. what criteria do you have that would allow you to arrive at a silent optimized mid tower and a cooling optimized full tower? just want a white case? the H440 is a closer match to the R5, the Rosewill Thor or CM Storm Stryker are a closer match to the Enthoo Pro. between the two cases the R5 has better space efficiency, more flexible mounting of hard drive bays, better dust proof front panel, a smaller footprint, and is more fully white as the Enthoo Pro has large black front and top mesh. the Enthoo Pro has a larger side window, cleaner interior with the drive bays and psu covered, has bigger intake/exhaust areas and the top exhaust has a dust filter, has more optical bays and is larger overall.

This is my current build... Do you think the R5 was the right decision

it's design is old and it has poor voltage regulation. the EVGA GQ 650 is a much better budget option.
