    I'm having a hard time deciding on one of these two cases. I'm mainly looking for cooling. The P160 has two 120mm fans, one in the front and one in the rear. The Praetorian has three 80mm fans, front, rear, and top. Which would be better for cooling?

    2 120mm are better then 3 80mm plus 2 120mm are quieter.

    I do not like the P160, but in your comparision between a P160 and a Centurion, I would much rather have the P160.

    And, yes, 2x120mm is definitely better than 3x80mm.

    It all depends how much you want to speed Lian Li 6070 is $308 Silverstone TJ04 $208 I have used a antec 1080AMG $228 good case but was heavy , there are many cases around it all depends how much you want to spend the Centurion is good for its price and the money you save buying it you can spend on a good power supply.

    err, where do you get your prices? Lian Li 6070 should be no more than $160 and a Silverstone TJ04 should be no more than $100.
