Antec 900 or Antec P182?its purpose is for air cooled heatsink.so the watercooling hole on the p182 doesnt really matter to me.

More about : give advice case

Depends on your purpose, the Antec P-182 looks nicer, is more quiet, and has much better cable management, however, the Antec 900 cools slightly better, and looks better, depending on taste. It really does not matter what case you use, both will work fine with air cooled heatsinks.

^^ yes... it's all a matter of personal taste. I love my Antec 900 and mod the heck out of it!

from the fan configuration available on both case the antec 900 have better cooling there can be install with 1 more fan and the top fan is bigger hence more air flow.

and one curious question isnt the antec 900 a full tower case and the p182 is a midi tower suppose to be smaller?

The P-182 cools almost as well as the Antec 900, thanks to its superior cable management and layout. It all comes down to personal taste, there is nothing that makes either absolutely better.

Except the fact that the 900 is quite loud and the P182 is quiet to silent.

Not actually true - if you have cables all over your case, they'll obstruct your airflow, and if it's really bad they can get snagged on fans and such. I'm not advocating either case, just pointing that out :p 

EDIT: Oh and if you need to upgrade or otherwise fiddle with your components, your life will be made much easier if you don't have a mass of cables in the way.

Antec 900 also has water cooling holes.

I bought one for the hopefully better cooling. And although I am a proponent for neat cabling layouts, I regard the side window of a case as a useless feature.
