the best case between the 3 is the HAF 912, with the elite 430 being second. I have used both mutiple times, and had excellent success with both of them. Good cooling, good case design. My preference is the 912, but the 430 is nothing to be scoffed at. Its much larger then the 430, but it is a breeze to work on, and it keeps everything cool.
With that said, fans are extremely cheap and easy to replace.
