    You need to add an "all of the above" I think.

    Voted 'Other' for that reason.

    I'm aiming for something individual and sentimental. By that i mean the case from a personal point of view will never go out of date, you'll always be happy with it :)

    "All of the above" here as well. I'm to damn much of a perfectionist. So much so that many projects never get finished.

    Well, like the others, im going with "All of the above" I like something that no one has done before, and i like it to be functional and look damn good while its at it.

    It's aesthetics (I believe, sp check on www.dictionary.com I'm too lazy).

    I voted aesthetics because I love to make stuff look good. But that isn't what I aim for in my mods. In my mods I aim for what I believe to be perfection.

    I voted aestetics as well, but I still would have liked an "all of the above", simply because I think a good mod has all of the above :p.

    Should be a checklist
    Aesthetics and functionality. I'm just finishing up something right now where I'm improving both quite a bit by making my watercooling fully internal as well as adding some bits and bobs. To be honest I don't really care if my mod is that unique because I think taking ideas from peoples mods will only make yours better, just be sure to give them credit if you don't even change the idea. I like it to be different, but not necessarily unique, if that makes sense. Maybe the other way around...

    yah a good mod is an incorporation of all of them. but after that it breaks down depending on the case I'm doing, my personal case is a bish to use functionality wise, but its very unique and I think Beautiful. Where as the cases I make for others are Really functional with a quirk that makes the fun and interesting.

    In this order.

    Silence
    Both, my main rig and my server are like 2m away from my ears when I'm sleeping.

    Performance
    I try to get the best I can from what I have, but I have to think and design ways to make it better and silent at the same time.

    Asethics
    This is cool when you see a "before and after", when you buy a very cheap case that's near to garbage and you turn it into something others would want to have and you also want to have. ;)

    I think it also has to have style, if it has all the above and is a plain square box it looks blah!
    Style is good :D

    Functionality allways has to come first. Most mods for function will also improve asthetics and style (most give the kool factor) so it has a knock on effect.

    If it aint unique dont do it FULL STOP!

    Functionality... deffo... I'd prefer a fully functional (and reliable) modded computer over a completely unique and beautiful computer.

    I go for everything. Perfection, asthetics, functionality, and bragging rights.
