The BBQ one made me lol.

How would the Galaga one even get moved? I'd hope it come apart in several pieces.

Btw, it's MDF, not MBF.

The phase change cooling one looks sweet. I agree, the paint job is superb (thought in person I'm sure it's better than the picture).

nice, cept the HAF one - LOL - makes me laugh since all that is different from my "stock" one sitting here is they changed the big ass 200mm(220,240 something like that) for 4 120mm fans that it already has the holes for in the case...LOL

For being written at 2AM after the Bravery concert last night I'm shocked that was all that was wrong in that article. It was a good night and free drinks at the concert was nice.
