the rv02 gets rid of gpu lean which bothers me
Be careful with orientation in these cases. Some people have reported graphics card overheating due to the arrangement. I think it's because of poor cooler contact with the GPU rather than actual heatpipe arrangement but it might be better to avoid the problems altogether.
The Fractal Design is a quieter case if anything as the Silverstone 180mm fans have a bit of a tonality to them.
Why do you need such a big case? Unless you are going E-ATX the standard Define R4 would make more sense than the Define XL R2.
