    What is your favourite computer case?

    I made a post like this before the bignuke(tm) so i thought i'd create another one


    Whats your favourite computer case?



    My views have changed over the past few weeks since im forever reviewing cases...

    --------------

    Without a doubt my favourite case has gotta be the Cooler master 111 in black. I've never seen the case in the flesh but its just a 201 in disguise. stunning appearance.





    --------------


    in 2nd place would be a Lian Li PC37. strange case... but so unique and individual its my 2nd favourite case. Some would call it ugly... but this is why it appeals to me. functionality over appearance..... The case also introduced the launched of the new CD bezel. ---- Read the Case Review Here .....



    ----------------

    Im currently running this case :



    Hasnt got the looks of the likes of coolermaster but as far as functionality and cooling goes it walks all over coolermaster / lian li.

    120mm fan mounts front and rear, removable mobo tray, load of room to work with, removable hard drive bays and so on.

    All aluminium design, the inside of the case is also black

    I second Gordy on that one. This things gonna be cool but along time in the works. I think alot of the attention is now going towards the trailer which is going to carry the recharging gear but a sit and ride trailer would have been alot more fun at LANs.

    The downside... it costs more than many Ford Focus... This thing is pretty big, one of those tyres must rival Shuttles in size .

    You have no idea how tempted I am to put my shuttle on wheels and maybe hide a water cooling kit in it .
