    I'm currently planning a new build but can't seem to find a case I like. I'm fairly picky when it comes to the design, but also like functionality. A lot of the cases that I find look good, lack important features such as USB 3.0 on the front. Then when i find the features, they look a bit bland.

    I was wondering comes to mind for other people when they think of cases that have great looks and functionality.

    Best ones i've found so far are:

    Red seems to be a theme, i've noticed. Only downside to those few are the excessive amount of mesh. So much dust :/

    Just wondered what came to everyone elses mind? Couple of company names would be useful too.

    Personally having played with a range of cases .. thinking "oh hey this should be great.... or good..... or not to bad" have turned into rather disappointing situations. Poor cable management, poor airflow design.


    The cases that usually look the most bad ass are usually the worse design.


    I'm still a fan of the Silverstone Raven Cases, I prefer the larger model/design... the older of which have some pretty poor cable management, and terrible hardrive bay design.


    I keep going back to the Coolermaster 690 II Advance USB 3.0, i'm VERY disappointed in the 690 III, they eliminated the 3.5" sata hot swap top loading drive bay for just a useless dust collector now. The only thing that really improved was the 2.5 ~> 3.5 extendable drive pays that are universally designed.




    I'm still have a bitch of a time finding a decent case that is pure white..... PURE white..


    Coolermaster 690 II advance was available in Pure White... BUT the bloody bastards made it only available in the UK.....

    I have a lot of love for the RV01, looks like a cool design and seems to be pretty well made.
