    Different people have different tastes in PC cases, what's your favourite, or have you spotted one you're interested in?
    Also, if you're proud of a particular case mod, you can probably post that too. Don't post pictures of stock PCs for the sake of it! :)
    Post URLs rather than direct images.
    I guess I'll start the ball rolling:
    NZXT Lexa Blackline:

    Some nice tidy cases there, i like the first especially but the last certainly blows you away if you get my drift lol.

    I saw this one a while back, took me a while to find it.

    Maybe abit too much but its certainly an original design, i'll have one for sure :) Alright for the football fan i guess.

    Hehe, did you ever see the Mountain dew mod case? That was quite cool. I like how Becks is even written on the CD drive.

    Yeah, and i bet the cd drive is used to hold drinks for sure lol so an all rounder drinks machine you could say.

    HA! i'll take what i said back, anyone can make them. lol

    They're asking quite abit for a table aint they?

    For cooling tis good but i know if i had one, i would have to make it a drink free room as no doubt my young brother will spill his drink all over it!

    Would definately be ideal for bench tests.

    Well yeah, it's not a ful time PC case, it's a test lab equipment. True, it's pricy, but what lab equipment isn't? You can also buy switches and LEDs that attach directly to the motherboard headers, as well as the PC speaker. I'm contemplating buying that set just for the PC speaker, which is conspicuously absent in most modern PC cases.

    Well, a rip-off £9, but bear in mind it's from a very small, specialist shop (KustomPCs), that place isn't your average store that sells CPUs, graphics cards whatever, they're a small business dedicated to people who go a step above owning a PC.

    Lol I don't work for them by the way, that post did make it sound it.

    Not yet, they're probably available on ebay, truth be told. That's an absolute goldmine for specific connectors, I needed a different type (to the norm) of 3 to 4 pin connector, and also an unguarded 3 pin extension cable before, and managed to find both. Nowhere else have I found those before or since!

    Nice, I get most of my components from ebay just because of the price but i do sometimes get better deals in my local pc shop but thats only due to minus the delivery charge.

    Indeed, I don't really have a local PC shop any more though, it's just electrical retailers, who are useless for anything other than TVs and games consoles.

    As do I. If it weren't for the fact that it came with two power supplies, I'd have already bought one. The potential for quiet cooling in that thing's insane.
    Mind you, the smaller P182 is also capable of silently cooling one of the most powerful gaming PCs available...
