I always liked the look of the haf-x. The 700d is a pretty classy case too.

For airflow, you can't beat the Antec Lanboy Air...although it does look a bit Lego...

yes, but Im not sure about those Dam spike/triangles on top *** is that.

It gets a 9 out of 10
-1 for "shredder look"

other thoughts:
-PSU in the front FTW
-smaller than rvo2 nice
-easy cable management

I prefer my psu in the bottom back with easy cable management. The 700d and the haf-x provide both those things.

It's to direct airflow, or something like that, I'd prefer if they weren't so stuck up though.

As for a cheap simple case, the CM 690 special w/e
with the gpu holder thingy is actually really nice for the price.

Just a quick 2 cents on the HAF-X. It's been a dream to work with, but make sure your motherboard's CPU cooler back plate is positioned where they have the cutout on the HAF-X. I have an Asus P55 mobo and the cutout is like an inch away from working for my setup. As it stands now, I'd have to remove the entire motherboard to remove my heatsink's backplate. That definitely sucks, considering how much my setup cost me. That said, I have no plans on upgrading the cooler any time soon, so I don't have to remove the backplate.

The rv03 is a 90 degree case so it is actually even better for cable management.

The psu cables come out the left side of the case, hidden, then run a short distance to the 4/8pin cpu power and also a short distance to the 24pin rail

Really sweet idea if you think about it. Silverstone says, "it will force customers to have good cable management" go to 3:35 to see
