Ok so me and my gf are browsing online for a case for her. She keeps bringing up these cheap POS cases w/ cheap PSUs just cause the picture has some green in the case and the outside has green. Well weve had a small argument before about this but not to this extent. Anyways i bring up a Thermaltake Soprano w/ a window and tell her i will help you deck it out w/ green LEDs and shiz to look cool and its a very awesome case. What do i get? It looks like a fridge. Im like say wha?? She says it looks like a fridge. Now before she tried saying me and my best friends cases looked like fridges too. (Antec Sonata IIs). We give her a stupid look like wtf are you saying? Well we get into a huge argument about it and now its a cry fest but blah. To the point.

Does anybody agree w/ her? She thinks alot of cases look like fridges. What about yall?

She's right. Computer cases are upright boxes, and any case with a door will resemble a fridge.

I've got a black Wave Master, but it just looks like a frisge that has the freezer on the bottom. Go figure.

Show her the Ammo case from Cooler Master -

You can swap the front blue LED fan for a green one, put another green one in the back, and there ya go.

Show her the ThermalTake Matrix:

and the Swing:

Basically, avoid anything with a door.

Why does it matter what the case looks like? It's not like it will perform better with the more green LED's you stick it in.

Don't Offer her and Technical assistence if see goes against most of your suggestions, thats what I do with my customers. They choose wrong and I won't fix it. Kinda works for anything, not just PC's and computer hardware.

I think it's totally ridiculous (sp) that you and your gf would have an argument and a "cry fest" over how your computer case looks like a fridge. Unless she was somehow super hostile with her refrigerator related comments I think you took it way too seriously, but hey that's just my opinion.
I actually don't care for cases with doors, they don't seem necessary at all and seem like they'd always be in the way of my drives.

Basically, they are just for cosmetics.

But doors come in handy if your drive ain't the same color as your case...
