As for as noise level and cooling performance, which will be better?

LIAN-LI PC-6070B is smaller and will fit better on my desk and about $40 CDN more.

Antec p182 has to go under my desk and probably the water cooling won't be used.



I actually ordered P182 but order tracking says it's not in stock anymore. I think I might have time to change till tonight.

The 182 uses 120mm fans, the 6070B uses mainly 80mm fans, with one side 120mm fan:

Got to vote for the 182....or, the Antec 900.

80mm fans are generally noisier and less effective.

Might help to read the Newegg User reviews, some of the reviews are very practical, honest, and helpful.

My understanding is that the 6070 isn't great at cooling or noise reduction. I you want a quiet case that's smaller than the P180 series, and are willing to go without a door, just pick up an Antec P150 (white, includes PSU) or Antec Solo (same as the P150, minus the PSU and is colored black).

have you compared their weight?

You could lift the LL with 1-2 fingers and yet you could sit on it safely

That's what some people call, Quality.

Given the average weight of typical AToTers, if they tried sitting on a solid steel case, or that thick, sixty-seven pound case from Zalman they'd still crush it like a tin can :p

I personally wouldn't buy a case with 80mm fans. They simply don't move enough air. You can mount up to five 120mm fans in the P182, which will allow you to move a lot of air with much less noise. The P182 is very well designed, IMO.

i agree, stick with 120mm fans, have u tried searching for LL case's with 120mm fans?

silverstone cases with 92mm fans aren't bad either.
