The s340 is a great case - I absolutely love its look

I've heard it scratches easily but mine hasn't scratched yet. (had it for 6 months)

As an owner of 2 built Phanteks P400 cases, I have to say I love them. I have a P400S acrylic window and my wife has the P400 Tempered Glass. Either version of the non windowed you would be happy with. Cable management is a breeze in it. Only go for the P400S if you need the built in fan controller as the sound deadening material is a needed upgrade in my opinion. And here are pics of both of our cases. Both are running RX 480 graphics cards for reference.

You can check my signature for a S340 build

That being said the Define C is a VERY nice case.
