The Anti-rice thread?

post #1 of 150
Thread Starter 
Anyone think it's worth starting a thread for the more mature PC case?

You know the type I mean:

* No windows
* No LED fans
* Only visible LEDs are purely functional (HDD activity, power)
* No large areas of mesh without a fan behind them that is approximately the size of the mesh
* Noise cancelling feature rich (like rubber grommets as standard, noise cancelling foam etc)
* No external radiators if WC'ing

Not sure if this'd get much interest, but I'd be happy to start and maintain such a club if there's some support for it.

Ta,

EDIT: Mesh clarification.

Interesting idea. I have a Lian Li A 70F, the only thing has blue lighting is my Laptron FC2. This build will happen in 2011. I have some Noiseblockers for intake. Nothing else for the inside, yet. I may call it the Amish Build.

A lot of plain cases look really nice. Especially the OEM ones from HP, IMO.

I feel where this is going and I like it. It would not suprise me though if there weren't many who'd agree on this style of pc.

Yeah, I'm in. I really see no benefit to having lights, and other flashy things. I believe a beast only needs chains, not flashy signals saying "I'd rather have flashy stuff, then an actual better cpu, or gpu."

I would prefer a window although, only to see if everything is all right, but that is because of my anxiety.


So, yeah I am so in. Put it on my sig. =)

Lol, I linked to this page on my sig, Hopefully we actually make up a little more then 3% of the population.

I think it should only count if you are given the option to have flashy things, and choose not to, not because your cheap lol.
