    More like G5 cases. Nevertheless they look pretty bad ass. I wouldnt mind having one and chopping the wheels off.

    I'd say that the mesh one probably cools quite efficiently (a la the G5).

    the alumminum materials that they are constructed out of cool more efficiently (dissipate heat more efficiently) than other case materials. It will keep the ambient case temps lower yielding better result of your processor heat sink and or fan.

    Those are sweet though!

    I see a lot of people praise Lian Li for quality which I can clearly understand but in terms of look I do NOT see the appeal...I am going with an Antec case when I get a chance, my friend got the performance II and holy shit that really impressed me, mine is a 30$ case, which I have cut up to mount extra fans...I need to change, next mod :hs:

    not to be a dick, but where do you see the appeal in any Antec cases? Maybe the ones on their site arent all that they sell, but I guess style is in the eye of the beholder.

    I guess so, IMO this case:

    They look cool? :dunno:

    I guess it is in the eye of the beholder...Lian Li is ugly IMO never liked it, it's like the cadillac of cases, when you get that certain age...you'll get it, but right now i'll stick with my ferrari (caugh antec caugh)

    heh whatever to each their own

    Hm, interesting thought. I would have said the opposite though, Lian Li ones are way flashier, whereas someone older would appreciate that the Antec ones are really functional and look like cool server cases :dunno:

    Antecs are nice. They're for people who can't afford a nicer case.

    I just like cases that are sleek, and clean looking. Too much going on, on the outside of the case isnt my thing. I like the new Kingwin cases too; they similiar to Lian Li's but I always liked the look of the G5's and the new Lian Li to me is a good knock off. The wheels though have to go however.

    check out this one :rofl:

    I said they are nice. Just not as nice as Lian Li or Coolermaster. I almost bought one for the power supply, but bought a Lian Li and seperate PSU.

    The Sonata is a great case. If I build my mother a computer soon I will definately use that case.

    Looks like its a flipped ATX case.

    If it was a BTX case the IO ports and PCI slots would be switched.
