System Name Flash
Processor I5-4670K
Motherboard MSI Z87-G45
Cooling Stock Air
Memory 4x4GB G.Skill RipjawX DDR-1600 CL9
Video Card(s) ASUS 7970 DCU II
Storage Samsung 840 250GB + WD Black 640GB
Display(s) Dell U2412m + 2x Dell 2209WA
Case Corsair 230T
Audio Device(s) Realtek Hi-Def onboard
Power Supply HX850
Software Win7 Pro
Just when I was ready to pull the trigger on the 230T, the 400R went on sale too.

230T - 69$ - 12$ MIR
400R - 89$ - 20$ MIR

Any advantages of the 400R over 230T? I noticed the 230T does not have gromments, however 230T has 320mm GPU support in lower slots vs 316mm overall for the 400R.

I also only have 1 DVD-RW, 1 SSD and 1 HDD. I don't plan to add any extra HDD's because I own a NAS hence don't need any more storage inside my computer other than immediate storage.

Want to pull the trigger by tomorrow to take advantage of the MIR, so fast replies very appreciated.
