Silence is number one to me. Followed by clean lines. I just got a Nanoxia Deep Silence 1.

I just ordered a Fractal R4, so black box I guess.

I got it for what's on the inside, not to impress my cat with shiny lights.

I personally do not have my case on display, so I do not really care what it looks like.

I have it somewhere in a compartment of my desk (still gets decent airflow and great temperatures). That way I do not have to look at an ugly desktop case and I can not even hear it is there. Only annoying thing is that I have to take it out whenever I want to open it up.

If I did have it visisble somewhere it would probably be a mid-size sleek Lian-li. Something that does not draw a lot of attention to itseld. To me, those large flashy cases are kind of ugly. Case-lights make it even worse. But to each his own.

The best course of action is to just get the information you need, then get out while you're still alive. - destroy everything on GameFAQs
