The Lexa isn't flimsy, it's just light because it's an aluminum chassis. It's never flexed or anything on me and I have carried it to friends' houses several times with the LAN carriage that comes with it (rather convenient). And yeah, the front panel is plastic, but sometimes I wonder why people make such a big deal about it. It still looks good. I like the P180, but I definetly wouldn't get that if I planned on taking it anywhere. It's definetly has a great sleek look to it. I don't like the Cooler Master anywhere near as much as the Lexa or P180. It's just not the same grade of quality and it only has 1 fan (exhaust)!

IMO, choose from the Lexa or P180, depending on which you want. I think looks, preference, and weight (if you plan on lugging it around) is the main factor here, they're both good quality cases with great cooling.

Yes, those are great cases, full tower ATX. Really good if you want the most room inside your case. Btw Ridlyn, you linked to the TT Armor instead of Aurora. Here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...&Go.x=0&Go.y=0

O well, still gets the message through. I've always like the armor every since i've seen it. I would say go with that. But hey that's my personal preference do what you want.

Yeah. As NathanM mentioned, those are full-towers. I really don't need that much space.

The Armor, Jr. (the mid-tower variant) isn't really much to my liking either.
