In agreement there with aura

I agree. The case should be just a normal HP or something really cheap with like a flame sticker on the side of it.

You know the type I mean:

* 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,
I would add to that list: no decals/stickers (unless MAYBE it's custom or something special/unique that goes with the case theme and doesn't stand out).

(I remember way back when I used to think it looked so "cool" to have the cpu/gpu case badges on the front of a case. ::shudder:: Now I just leave those in the box where they belong.)

Lol, are you serious?

I thought it was because rice packages always look so exciting, and in the end it's just rice.

That's the joke I thought.

I wouldn't go as far as to called them 'rice'. A lot of PCs can be done tastefully using leds and such. I personally prefer a window and some cathodes.
