Sentey Bx1-4284 vs Cooler Master HAF 912

I was leaning heavily toward buying a Cooler Master HAF 912 for my video post-production/web dev/some gaming build, but now I think I'd rather go for a Sentey Bx1-4284 case -- I like some of the features better (on paper, at least) and especially appreciate the narrower width.

It seems that by many accounts the HAF 912 is considered something of a standard for a really good case at a great value. Might I be sacrificing something -- namely airflow, quietness, cable management, etc -- in a big way if I went with the Sentey over the HAF 912?

The HAF 912 is tried and true coming from a trusted, reputable case manufacturer.

The only reason I'd go for the Sentey is if it was quite a bit cheaper, or for the fan controller if you dont want to deal with the BIOS with PWM fans.
