Default Coolest case ever?

So..... I am wondering....what do you think is the best/coolest case available? No issue on price.....

Pretty much I got a little extra money coming in.... and since I am being kinda lazy on finishing my cube case thing, I was thinking of trying something else out. Going to need room for 2 x 320mm swiftech Rads, dual pumps and dual Res. Harddrive space is always nice too.

I hate Doors. Oh, and Aluminum would be best, as it uses less cutting discs....

I'm Thinking Lian li....they have some nice new models, might give something a try.

Lian Li PC-X2000 without a doubt. But it definitely would require modding to get to fit 2 MCR320's. You also need to optical drive covers as that just ruins as having a drive stick out ruins the whole look.

I love my Lian Li PC-A70 and wouldn't want anything else.

the V series by Lian Li are nice but they are massive.

bit-tech.net | Review - Lian Li Tyr PC-X2000

for those to lazy to google it yourselfs. All the other cases posted are decent, but near the size of this monster. If I were still in to PC's like I use to be, it would be without my next case.

Except that is more designed for HTPC than a normal computer especially with the way the optical drives and such work.

Ok I think Lian li seems like the way to go lol. BUT, I do like cases that are deep, and not as tall...oh well, beggars cant be choosers I guess.

**EDIT** Wow....side optical drives..... I think that could be VERY usefull.

Hmm... it also looks like a pain to mod. 140mm fans, not deep enough for a 320 up top... hmm

That's a sweet case, but a terrible one for watercooling.

I like HP's Blackbird case, and some of the Voodoo cases are absolutely freaking gorgeous when you see them in real life. But those aren't exactly affordable or readily available.
