Price is not an issue..I can get them for the same price.

Which you think would be the better overall case?

Depends on what your looking for, and your preferences.

Do you want Bling or Sleek.

I own a P182, and it's a very solid case, great cable management as well. VERY nice to build in. It's quite the luxury case. However not the best for airflow. It's good, but it could be better. It's a quiet case as well, even with the stock fans on high it's decently quiet.

The TT Armor has better airflow, i'm pretty sure.

This is what a P182 looks like with a computer in it.


and with the Drive Bay in.

Before purchasing mine I loved P182
But as lucuis said it will be so congested after building
And I prefered a bigger one with more space and more fans

I never said it was congested. And wired properly it's not even close. What i meant by "not the best airflow" is the front panel has a door on it which hinders the intake.

Mine may only look congested because i have one of the largest HSF you can get, plus my videocard is far from small.

For best airflow you want a case with no front door, and a fairly open front. something like the Antec 900 or 1200.

for a p180 user, you need to purchase a psu has longer cable and spend more time on cable mangement, the reward is a quite pc and cpu never over heat.

you can see mine here with time consuming cable managment. i configured mine differently from lucuis, but its a great case otherwise.

I still wish i had noticed i ordered a IDE cd drive instead of a SATA cd drive...i really hate the IDE cable.

It's the only cable to really cause me any grief while doing cable management.

its only 25 bucks to get the sata drive.
