    i liked this one except for the side being clear.

    i really don't want it to look like a gaming computer at all. i'm going to building ten of them for work. kinda want them to look industrial ya know...

    my only requirement is that i need to be able to put a serial port card in it to power a cnc machine controller.

    i'd like to spend $100 or so, but if i find a badass one for $180 or so i'll still take it.

    pretty sure heat is going to be a problem with a case that small. 60mm isnt much for cooling

    "Antec introduces the ISK Series, an entire line of cases designed exclusively for Mini-ITX motherboards."

    It seems you're trying to build a computer that you think looks good, rather than performs well. I suggest you clearly define what you want this computer to accomplish before you go out and find yourself a pretty case for it. There is a reason why cases are they size they are.
