    Fractal Design Define R3 for me. I used a Coolermaster Centurion 5 for many years. The Define was my first quality case that used "new" concepts like cable routing holes, room for cables behind the mobo, CPU bracket cutout behind the mobo, removable trays, bottom mount PSU etc.

    Great case!

    Look at it there. Imposing, ridiculously oversized, goodness.

    My favourite 'realistic' one is my Define XL. Not for everyone and it wouldn't be great for a bazillion-watt gaming rig but I wanted classy, well made, silent, air-cooled and space for all my hard drives.

    Most lusted after? Caselabs, duh. :)

    My Coolermaster Cosmos S is the only decent case i've ever had so I cant comment on others. It has its flaws e.g not enough room for a large heatsink, drive bay dust filters looking terrible after a few months and also letting dust through between each bay cover.

    If I were to buy another case it'd be a Lian-Li PC-U6 for an HTPC build.

    Where's CM's follow-up to the 840?.. It was an amazing case.

    The white Corsair 600t is a pretty nice case.

    I'm happy with my recent purchase of a CM 690 II White, just a shame it didn't come windowed so guess I'll need to get that done at some point.

    Another vote for the Fractal R3 from me, I don't think I'd go back to a non silence focused case.

    ATCS 840. The features just make it a brilliant case. Now CM has gone the other way making tonka toy cases. The one I would love to own is a case labs, or the new corsair 900d if the pics shown are real

    That's a difficult one. I've gone through over 40 case models during the last 6 years (jesus christ on ice skates, I didn't realize there were that many until I counted! (also makes me wonder if anyone has reviewed more cases than I have...)), and there have quite a few that I've liked.

    From the top of my head my favorites have been Silverstone FT01, FT02, Antec Solo II, Corsair 650D, Silverstone GD04.

    In looks i would be undecided between Silverstone Temjin TJ07 and Lian Li Tyr PC-X900. But man those were damn expensive... PC-X900 was ~350€ if my memory serves me well and TJ07 is still over 300€ here in Slovakia.

    On other side, those are damn too big too. So right now, my favorite case is Bitfenix Prodigy. Cheap, good quality, nice looking.

    My all time favourite case...

    Antec P182

    I still use it in my main rig. It has seen me through 4 upgrades and still going strong.

    TJ07 is great for wc but would be a terrible ac case. Still my fave though, even at stock. TJ11 is great but seems like it can't decide what it wants to be

    Ditto. No reason or desire to change it. Sure there are limitations but none of real significance!
