Help me buy a funky small ATX or M-ATX case that doesn't look like a computer

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 
Want something funky with a window preferably, planning on a 4770k liquid cooled with a 780 or 780Ti I would like the option to run dual cards, I wont be doing this but I'm planning ahead as I will be trying to cram in a 5 slot M-ATX board.

I have been planning on either a Phantom 410, prodigy M or a corsair 540 air but the first 2 are really popular and the corsair isn't that funky.

I want something where people go "What is that?" and I say "my PC" and there like "nooooo?". I could maybe deal with "Is that your computer????", but I would prefer them not even being able to tell it was a computer haha.

So far the lian-li PC-Q30 and PC-T1 are only M-itx, they don't seem to make the PC-U6 or PC- or the Burj al Dubai case any more. Should give you an idea of what I'm looking for, In-win made some pretty cool stuff 2 but again it doesn't look like I could actually buy it. Looks like they still have the Choo Choo case but I'm not big into Choo Choo's lol

I'd say max $300ish? Idk

There's a ton of cases that look more or less like stereo equipment. just google 'htpc case' and choose 'images'
