    Has to be the BitFenix Colossus. Something about that case is just... wow. And I'm not usually attracted to the flashy LEDs and whatnot.

    A runner-up is the Corsair Obsidian series.

    The Silverstone FT02, I'd totally own one, but it's not worth exchanging my current RV02 for one for only better looks. That and I'm really rather interesting in the Bitfenix Prodigy and Survivor, the Prodigy for the insanity in the design, and the Survivor because it's one of the few cases i've seen billed for "Lan Rigs" that doesn't make me want to vomit.

    The P180 with the system in my sig was not audible and its place was literally by my feet.

    That poor, battered P180 I had second hand and endured broken front panel and door for so long... only now (yesterday) have I swapped my system to a Fractal R3 and only now do I actually appreciate what silence actually means. The new case is a downgrade to quietness, but the new PSU Antec Quattro 850 may be a factor... a new fan that is a real competitive little beast could also be the problem?

    Anyhow, the P180 was nice.

    For pure value for money, I'm still very fond of the Antec 300. For style and design, it's my Lian-Li PC-A05 and for performance, my Silverstone TJ07. My all time favourite aluminium case for sentimental reasons is the Antec P160. My first ever 'performance' case and holy crap, it was brilliant!

    Of all the cases I've just mentioned, the A05 is the nicest to me. I would love an FF02 to build my other i7 rig into sometime, I've always liked them as well.

    Agree the 300 is a stonking case for the money. Always recommend that case to people on a budget. Have no favourite at the minute. Cosmos s was good but lacked features, carbide 400r was great but lacked raw space. I reserve judgement on my prodigy until I build it, when im back of holiday.

    Although I love a lot of case designs, I have to go with the Mac Pro case from Apple. The engineering inside it still makes me want to build a PC in one.

    Juno P6! haha

    gonna go old school and throw the juno P6 in there. It was as heavy/generically ugly as a double decker bus, but it was equally as tall as one and had great modding potential for the time (im talking circa 2001-2 in the days of coolcasemods.com and the likes if anyone remembers them?)

    Another one for the p180/2/3. Dam near silent, simple clean look and pretty much invented the mid panel* (*citation needed). I've hardly seen any mods using one which is a real shame, but will make mine a rarity :)

    I think that is more of an "I've been out murdering prostitutes again" fridge.
