Help me choose my case!

Ok so I'm just about ready to build my new rig, but I'm having some trouble deciding on a case. Originally I wanted to get the new Corsair Spec Alpha, but reading the reviews it's supposed to be a terrible case, it just looks cool. Anyways I have now set my sights on either the NZXT H440 in white or the Phanteks P400s also in white. I like the RGB control on the phanteks but I think the h440 has a sleeker design, the other contributing factor is that my GPU is a little too long for the h440 which means I'll have to remove at least one hard drive Bay to fit it while on the other hand the Phanteks case has no cage in the front so my card will be unobstructed. I'm going for a white and blue theme, so let me know what you guys think!

Other Components Mobo: Asus Z170-A CPU: Intel i7 6700k or Intel i5 6600k haven't decided GPU: Gigabyte G1 970 (312mm) RAM: Corsair Vengeance 16gb 2666mhz (white) CPU Cooler: Phanteks U Type ts something 12 dx or something like that PSU: EVGA G2 750w

Let me know how my build looks not everything has been purchased yet so some feedback would be appreciated

the H440 is a higher class of case than the P400S. also, there won't be a gpu length issue, not like the hdd brackets are necessary.
