I am looking for a new case, one with a fair amount of room and decent cooling.

I am going to be using a Swiftech water cooling setup, so would like extra room for the pump / reservoir.

I have looked at many cases, from the AntecP182 to the ThermalTake Armor.

I am looking to keep the price around $150.

My reservations about the P182 is that the interior seems rather crowded. As for the ThermalTake armor, I don't really like how it looks. The front looks like a cheese grater and a dust magnet. I do like the window on the side, but you can see way too much of the frame and drive bays for my liking.

Does anyone have any other suggestions?

Armor is nice
Antec 900 is more "roomy" inside than the P182
Lian-Li make A10 and A71 which are awesome one is full tower other is mid

I think I might have misunderstood the dust filter situation on the ThermalTake armor, maybe you can help me understand better. Does each unused drive bay have a filter, or just where the fan is?

I do really like the Antec 900. I was also concerned with dust on this case due to the grill meshing on the side window. I suppose for any case that has fans on the front, I can purchase filters for it. Since I will be using watercooling it should be easier to dust out the system without having to spray the dust between the fins on coolers and such.
