None of them. A Meshify C is perfect for your needs.

Those are the only options I have because it's a prebuilt desktop and that's what they offer on iBuyPower.

I already have before it went well. I'm now a full time student and I work full time. I don't have the spare time I used to. That's why I'm getting a pre built.

If you insist on a prebuilt pc go for the LianLi Lancool II.

Its the only one of them that has decent arflow and will allow for decent cooling.

Again if you plan to stream and game, you'll have enough time to build a PC.

I dont see your problem...

Spare time?? Bud it will take you tops 4 hours to assemble your own pc. Not really a valid argument you have.

Yea no 

Financially that's stupid 

Spending 4 hours sounds painful but it is not like a lesson or something 

It is 4 hours of fun

I'm not gonna argue on why it's better to build it yourself, seems that you have already made your decisions to buy  a pre-build. Like some has suggested, get the Lancool II. Most pre-build comes with a crap PSU so make sure you get a quality one.

Also I would like to add that those 4 hours that you would invest in building a system is part of the experience it is by no means painful if anything it's fun

The only one I'd pick over the Lancool 2 for ventilation purposes only is the Enermax Sabery, assuming it comes with the optional mesh front paneling shown in the standalone Case listing

https://www.amazon.com/Enermax-ENERMAX-Saberay-White-ECA3500WA-RGB/dp/B07KTKP437

 

However, the Lancool 2 will have better features and build quality, so I'd still likely choose that over the Enermax anyways, as Lian Li is developing a better front panel for the Lancool 2 which could potentially be swapped in in the future.
