    Looked at the photo, it screamed "I'm Batman", no idea why maybe it's my brains crazy way of telling me I like the design.

    So design/aesthetics would be my answer.

    I am a fan of cases with good airflow so for me that would be the best feature

    Support for tall video cards. It's nice to see a manufacturer specifically mention that their case supports this.

    I often find myself building in small cases and I keep finding that manufacturers save space by putting connectors, switches, fans, or power plugs (RVZ01 <.<) too close to the top of the actual card for tall cards to fit without a collision of some sort.

    The thing i love about this case is how it looks like an updated corsair 300r from the looks of the rear and mobo tray, yet has good watercooling potential.

    Come for the competition, stay for the cheesecake :D

    I like the clean look of it. It's nice to see a case that doesn't seem aimed at über 1337 teenage boys that want everything to look like it came from an ammo dump.

    I ain't selling my soul for the chance of a freebie.

    I actually like the look of it but they've pitched it too high by £15 - £20 in my opinion. That's enough to make you look elsewhere.

    The orange colour scheme is refreshing and used well to accent just the right places and good to see plenty of noise reducing features as anything more than a whisper from a PC case is considered too much.

    Overall I like the layout and cable management, the only small bug bear is the inside grill behind the the front fans that would probably be the main cause of noise inside this case and I think would be worth removing.

    I am also a big fan of Guild Wars 2 and think this shape and styling of this case may make a worthwhile mod for an Asura inspired adaption, though I doubt my meager skills would do it justice.

    Everybody loves the black and orange just like me, but what i love the most in this case are the small things what i only see here. The botton spoiler what prevents the PSU to suck the dust directly from the carpet, on the top the dust won't fall directly into the case thanks to the slided roof. All these little things comboed with the stunning looks and silent operation still with decent airflow makes this case perfect for me.

    I really do love the Be Quiet! philosphy and do enjoy the look of the case. Would have hoped it had a little better support for water cooling, but else i really do like it. I especially like the Black one with orange highlights. Really going to take a really good look at this case, I've been thinking about replacing mine anyway.

    I'd like to win Spreadie because he's a bitter, cynical misanthrope. A man after my own heart :D

    The rubberised hard-disk mounts and the sleek exterior design.

    I like the decoupling of the fans, PSU and HDDs.

    Sound dampening, excellent fans and the orange highlights !

    (I'm sure silver and black are OK too, but the orange just grabs my eye)

    Sound deadening measures.
