Hello,

 

The MB511 RGB has a mesh front panel while the MB520 RGB has only holes on the side.

 

So basically go with the MB511. A good alternative is the Phanteks P400A.

...ehhhh....yeah, glas blocks airflow. at least compared to the mesh version but those side vents do look pretty beefy so maybe its fine.

 

personally for the money i like the look of something like the in win 101 better. couple bucks more get you a be quiet pure base 500

the be quiet pure base 500 is the same price as the mb511 and cheaper than the mb520 so should i pick that one?

totally up to you i just like it better personally. around here the 511 and 520 are both around 60 and the 500 is 70 but i cant tell you one is definitly better. your choice. again i myself usually buy a bit more expensive case so i cant really tell you which is better.
