    Roboduck for me! The angular design and the brilliant HDD placement win me over :)

    I have to say, all these cases have such a ridiculous amount of fans they are all going to sound like jet engines. All of them were great looking, but in the end I went for Black owl because it offers something a bit different.

    The amount of fans doesn't set the noise level. More fans allow lower speed, and thus help decreasing the noise level.

    Proteus is the one that I would buy, although I would be more than happy with all four of the finalists.

    Same for me :thumb:. They all have something that I like, and I would be happy with all of them. However, Gladio is the one that matches my taste and use the more (who said I like big case :D)

    Except the handles that reminds of the G5, It's really not a G5 ! If I think the same way, all case from all brand are all plagiarism of the first tower case ever build !!!

    The innards are very different from the one of a G5. Unless you try something really new, you'll always end up with a case that looks like another one.

    Proteus really does have everything you would need but for me the Black Owl is a little more practical and stylish so Black Owl has my vote with Proteus closely second should a monstrous cooling set up be needed.

    As it has been the entire way through, black owl for me, because while the other cases are good, its a damn sight more practical

    I really like Black Owl. Apart from the tag line "just fear it". That makes me cringe.
