The 1st one. Only because the 2nd two look like the cheap plastic shit that was around 10 years ago.

I like number 3 personally :p

But #1 is the least flashy and therefore most solid build.

The 1st one... but that's because I hate cases with all the blue led stuff these days and that one seems to have the least amount of pimpage :)

Definitely 1st one.

2nd one has too much neon in it and 3rd one has a door to access dvd Rom drives etc which will drive you nuts after a while!

Thats the only problem I have with my DVD drive on my Cosmos, it's hidden behind a door.

Though I think the last time I used my DVD drive was when I installed windows...

Hmm, the 2nd one isn't to bad actually, atleast according to these reviewers (seems fairly competent) its good build quality according to them.



another review



seems like a good case, the only downside is its fucking ugly

I've got a Lian-Li case as well. They ensure there are no sharp edges within the case and some have a tool less design :)

Problem I see with the Lian-Li cases tho (at least the ones I've seen so far is lack of side venting and they're pretty small)

Heard nothing but good things about the Antec Eleven Hundred. (1st one), I personally would go with that one - I am actually considering it for my PC build in a few months, assuming I don't plump for the budget option of a coolermaster Elite 430.

There's loads of problems you can have with a case... poor layout, inadequate ventilation, limited expansion... sharp edges that slice the palms of the unwary. etc.

I don't think looking at it there's that much difference between the 1100 and the 1200 apart from price and the significantly more restrained looks of the 1100 (which looks a lot better imho).

Well, It's pricey but it will last you. Had 3 PCs in this case so far and I doubt I will need to replace it for a few years yet. All the fans work with no noise, a quick once over with the dyson to clean the filters every month or so and it's fine.

prolly 10 years ago ghetto mod like that was popular, think in the USA they used to use better quality card board which was thicker and stronger than the stuff we get. so it got used alot. there was on that did the rounds at the which was very well done and the guy even ended up airbrushing the card box so it looked like a real case

It is to be fair. What I always wanted was an original Alienware case. The very first design they did
