Need a new case for a build. What seems to be the case to get for all around silence and goodness, Corsair 550D or Fractal R4.....

Both are nice for quiet builds and I doubt one would be noticably quieter/cooler than the other with the usual fan-fu we do here. Pick the one with the features you like more.
