I like the clean ones with windows and I want it to glow like the moon but in a "clean" way don't know where to put this one but I'll put it under the blinkey ones. I don't like sound activated ones.

No plastic, I don't mind LED fans and such, but anything that goes out of the way, like cold cathode lights etc. seems a bit obnoxious in my opinion.

With watercooling, I gotta have window in my new case though.

good airflow and quality/material > everything else

I don\'t play for fun, I play to win and winning is fun.

yeah, i agree, there has to be a level of quality in a case, and a certain style. im going to get a thermaltake soprano or a Tsunami (havent quite figured out a difference between the two, does anyone know of one?) which i recon look quite nice. i really like the Silverstone Temjin Gloria SST-TJ04 has good features and very nice to look at, but unfortunatly i wont be able to afford it... which is why i have to get the Soprano

I like plain old beige or some non-obtrusive color like that with really good but also quiet cooling. Just very clean looking with nice metal as the main material.
