It always amazes me that every case good for watercooling are just big boring looking boxes. I know it's the guts that matter, and I'm not a fan of big, tacky looking cases, either but you would think someone would build a WC case that has a little style to it. Especially for the prices they run, and the fact that a lot of people who WCing seem to be into making it look good as much as they are the performance.

Lian Li, CaseLabs, Corsair, etc make nice looking, understated cases that are good for WC.

It's tough to make a big, flashy, and yet not ridiculous looking case. Big, understated cases are easier to make and easier to like. The ultimate WC cases, though, are made by Case Labs. Not everyone likes these because they are so subtle, but you can't have everything.

You have to remember that nobody is looking at your PC IRL or cares what it looks like outside of the pictures you may post on the internet. Because style is so subjective and Case Labs cases are so widely respected and so understated, though, you're almost better off getting the subtle case if you care about what people on the internet think about your PC.

I honestly prefer the more plan cases. I mean, my Fractal is a pretty plan case with some good guts. But I would much rather have this minimalist styled case sitting on my best than any of those cases that are made to look "flashy". Most of them end up looking like something some bum came up with anyways.

Scratch that, all swag has been ordered. Was holding out for one particular item but ended up buying a similar product from a different manufacturer.

Hopefully my power supplies have enough 6 pins for my grapics.

I went to chipotle today because it was raining... and closest to my office on campus. Bad thing is the long lines... but spring break is around the corner. That makes more sad than happy.
