I'm looking for the same thing. Glad I found your post first! I like this one:

The board sits on the bottom, cool air falls down, hot rises out. I especially like the handle and the digital readout on the front. I'm thinking about building my first computer, maybe for overclocking. Is mATX just NOT the way to go for overclocking, or is it just a matter of overcoming slightly more complex cooling problems? (small space, limited thermal dynamic options, etc. etc.)

I dunno about the cooling, but I've always been partial to the yellow/black bumble bee color scheme.

It'd be cool if someone modded it to the yellow bug transformer!
I thnk it'd look cool with a big bee or wasp logo on it.

The qpack is rated one of the best for cooling, though I don't see how cus it only has one outtake fan in the back....but whatever. Um...I was looking at that case too, but then I found this. I think I'm going with the cooler master, but tell me how the qpack works out for ya.

Yeah who knows with the one fan. It's all thermal-dynamics. It's got some decent reviews though....

Your pick looks pretty good, but I'm looking for something more non-conventional.
