    Get whatever case you like. Who cares if its "rice?" These people don't look at the case all day, you do.

    No, we don't, because our cases are functional and don't stick out like a giant glowing tumour.

    there's a difference between an impressive custom case with several LEDs and a mass produced case full of them

    Get a Lian-Li. The anti-rice case.

    I have that exact case. Besides the drive cage being in the wrong place and obstructing the PCIe slot for long cards, it's an excellent case. I guess another beef would be they're ridiculously expensive.

    I find lian-li cases incredibly boring.
    I know this is kind of an unpopular opinion here but I like a bit of flare in my cases. Not talking about rice, but just something to make it stand out form all the dull dreary matte black boxes everyone else seems to fancy. Not entirely unrelated, I'm a huge fan of mod cases and just anything that defies the norm when it comes to computer enclosures.

    Lian Li cases are extraordinarily functional though. I'd still buy one even though I find them dull.

    Yes, the function of sitting there out of the way, not drawing attention to its-self and doing its job.

    What happens if you meet a speed bump?
    Depending on the tires dented rims with a side order of muffler on the floor. Oh the body panels would crack and break lots of fun stuff.

    I remember denting my friends muffler when we were driving around but he had a spare engine block in the trunk.

    He only had an after market muffler and some small engine mods to save gas.

    It probably managed to offset any gains he might have gotten from the engine mods and muffler.

    Its so heavy that one of the doors is the weight of a cheap case. Really nice and room enough for a 5970 without taking out the drive bays.

    I went from an Antec 1200 to a Define XL, one of the best decisions I've ever made. The build quality is just amazing and it's so much easier to work with.

    I have a question for you guys though;
    If the case isn't horribly overpriced, is built well, and the OP likes it, why do you give a fuck what he buys? He likes it, you don't, who cares?
    This man is correct...it's his money, if he likes it, who are we to stop him?

    And I'd also recommend the Corsair Carbide 300R for its price and less flashy look.

    These are very nice, looks like a very ideal case for watercooling. Got to build a system for my work using that case, nice big spot for a radiator at the top and I think the front is designed to fit a rad as well. Lots of good spots for cable management too. One of the top engineers at the company specifically picked it to showcase some of their new hardware.

    I think multiple colored LEDs would only look good on a well planned out custom case build. I could think of a few cool ideas to give it a Shrooms/LSD mix. In fact at a local LAN one time this guy made a custom completely transparent case with mushrooms and other designs cut out all over to make it a really awesome unique piece of art. Then he had watercooling with blue translucent liquid and multiple colored cathodes that were discreetly placed. It was a really cool and unique case, I wish I had pictures.

    It's ridiculously bad at cooling though. I suggest the Fractal Design Define R3.

    The R3 has a lower ambient temperature due to the better airflow over my old Xigmatek Asgard.

    well if you want a completely almost non-rice, get an antec 300. It's cheap, big, solid, looks good and has a paint texture that I find really cool.
