Thanks for the advice! Lian's are very elegant, though press for Thermaltake Armor are just so hard to ignore. I am one of those people who drool over case windows and lights, and the armor has all those fancy features at a nice price after rebates on newegg.
I am trying to think of reasons why I would want a lighter case. Most of the time, my desktop just sits in my room. I sometimes will bring my computer back home during break, but I would just need to move it to my car. So despite the 35+lbs of armor, I think I can manage that. Space isn't much of an issue, so I should be able to manage a tower.
Since my apartment has crappy a/c, so good air flow is a must. I am assuming sound for either case is minimal, especially using 120mm fans. My current system isn't the quiet type, having 4 80mm fans. Already had to replace 3of4 fans. But overtime, I've gotten used to the noise. The new case will probably spoil me.
Another plus with thermaltake was the usb/audio/fire ports being on top. I find it inconvenient plugging my headset making sure I match the colours right where the ports on bottom of case.
I'm sure either case would please me, but armor seem to best fit my preferences.
