Personally I would go w/ the Lian Li. But mostly because I do not like the way the Sniper looks.

Lian-li here to. Here is the why.
First fo all, build quality from Lian-Li is outstanding. CM is good but not the same.
The look is also way better:P
The use of plastic from CM make the case keep the heat in the material, the Lian-li on wont do it.

And much more.

Hm, I was afraid of that. The Cooler Master is cheaper, has a *BEEP* load of fans, and is black on the inside. But I guess the Lian Li is better quality.

My Favorite brand is lian-li because of their quality and nice appearance.

i recommend this case:
Newegg.ca - LIAN LI Lancool PC-K62 Black 0.8 mm SECC, Plastic + Mesh ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

great cable managment and plenty of room for everything not to mention its tool-less... but lian-li all the way

The second case in the first post is that case, except Lian Li branded and made out of aluminum. I'd say go for the Lian Li one, aluminum is nice.
