Default Cases

I have been looking for a good ATX case and I have come down to one of these two:

1. Cooler Master Stacker 830
2. This Thermaltake Armor Case

Which one looks better? I am doing liquid cooling which points me toward the Thermaltake case, but I like the Cooler Master's air flow, I can't decide.

if you are doing liquid i wouldn't think air flow would be as important....

Well I looked at it as, water cooling cools down the cpu and graphic card(if it has a water block installed), but the fans on the side of the stacker cool the motherboard chipsets and ambient air in the case.

Neither of them are particularly forgiving when it comes to setting up a 360mm radiator internally.

Awesome, I didn't see they had a water cooling compatible version. I'm leaning toward that case, but for you other guys that said they both wern't good, what cases do you recommend?

the Thermaltake looks cooler to me because of the doors that open outwards
