They may be some of the best rendered, but they're also some of the best thought out cases. They have good internal design plus good external styling. I voted for xxSebaSxx also because it had great internal structure and framework. Some of the others have different and interesting ideas, but just aren't functionally practical. Even with the cases that I selected I don't think are perfect ( like an abundance of fans that seems to be common between most of the designs ). However, I will admit that I didn't look at the design thread, so maybe by vote was misinformed.
