Acrylic cases suck period.

Horrible fingerprint magnet, dust magnet and lets not even start about lack of being able to cable manage and possibly static build up.

My biggest issue with acrylic cases is a total and complete lack of EM shielding.

Aren't acrylic cases considered to be kind of passe'? No doubt they were cool like 6 or 7 years ago. I built a phenom 9600 system with one once and had nothing but touble with it from day one; couldn't keep the case clean or scratch free to save my life as well. I remember people showing off on youtube how well their systems ran HL2: Lost coast with 9800 GTX SLI in their watercooled acrylic cases at 2560x1600 resolution . The grounding and emi shortcomings of the cases would make me look elsewhere when considering a case these days. The motherboard standoffs aren't grounded, nor is the psu chassis, not so good IMO unless you are using it as a test bench short term.
