New Case, Fractal R6 vs Be Quiet Dark Base 900

Unfortunately I'm at this point again where I need a new case, as my good old Phanteks Enthoo Luxe TG has problems with vibrations coming from the HDD trays, which I can't solve as it seems. I get this humming and rattle sound at random times, and I need to find a better solution for a case that supports a lot of 3.5" HDD.

I'm currently considering Fractal Define R6 or Be Quiet Dark Base 900 (non-windowed versions). Which of these cases would be best at absorbing noise coming from HDD? I hear good things about the Be Quiet case, however I'm a bit concerned about radiator support in the top section, as there is no direct airflow out the top (only mesh grills on the sides). On the other hand the Fractal R6 looks really good, has a lot of room for both HDD and radiator support, but I'm not a huge fan of that PSU cover as they usually prevent good airflow to the graphics card (it's a fact with the Phanteks Enthoo Luxe).

Any advise or experience with any of these cases?
