NZXT H440 or InWin 805

As the title suggests I'm trying to get a case to match an upgrade that I'm doing to my system. Ignore the storage, PSU and the GTX 950 (I'm using those with my current system to set my dad up with my old machine):

So basically I'm going with a white and black theme and because of that I like the clean white and black look the H440 has, but the 805 is so clean looking with it's tempered glass and I have enough white components that the theme would not be lost in an all black case.

If anyone has any suggestions as to which case I should go with to really make this build shine it'd be much appreciated!

the InWin 303 is a good choice that doesn't cost too much. comes in a white version too. don't get AS5. MX-4 is a better TIM.

cost isn't something I care about as much and idk why but I'm just not a fan of the horizontal fan/radiator mount of the 303. I love the case but that is really the only thing pushing me towards the 805 instead. I'll be sure to get the MX-4 though, TIM's are like the only computer "part" that I really know nothing about comparison wise, everything else I have at least some understanding :D

I see. I'd say the 805 or the Evolv ATX Tempered Glass. the 805 has a usb type c so that's nice. the Evolv has more room and much more fan/radiator mounting capacity. both cases come on all black. or you could wait on this version of the 805.

I was looking into the Evolv ATX Tempered Glass, it's a very slick looking case (and it comes in white silver!) I just don't know how I feel about the front look. I like the 805 Infinity in concept but not really in practice, not my cup of tea I guess? It's cool and could go into a great build, just not what I have in mind. I might do some more digging into that Phanteks case though!
