Roboduck for me! The angular design and the brilliant HDD placement win me over :)

I have to say, all these cases have such a ridiculous amount of fans they are all going to sound like jet engines. All of them were great looking, but in the end I went for Black owl because it offers something a bit different.

The amount of fans doesn't set the noise level. More fans allow lower speed, and thus help decreasing the noise level.

Only one winner for me - Black Owl by SnowyOwl.

Proteus is the one that I would buy, although I would be more than happy with all four of the finalists.

Same for me ;). They all have something that I like, and I would be happy with all of them. However, Gladio is the one that matches my taste and use the more (who said I like big case :D)

Except the handles that reminds of the G5, It's really not a G5 ! If I think the same way, all case from all brand are all plagiarism of the first tower case ever build !!!

The innards are very different from the one of a G5. Unless you try something really new, you'll always end up with a case that looks like another one.

Black Owl all the way!

Proteus for me. Close second was Black Owl.

Proteus really does have everything you would need but for me the Black Owl is a little more practical and stylish so Black Owl has my vote with Proteus closely second should a monstrous cooling set up be needed.

As it has been the entire way through, black owl for me, because while the other cases are good, its a damn sight more practical

Absolutely stunning !

I really like Black Owl. Apart from the tag line "just fear it". That makes me cringe.

Black Owl is truly stunning.

But it doesn't look like it's designed with watercooling in mind while the other two are too large so my vote has to got to II as it looks truly innovative as well as practical.

Black Owl for me
Gladio needs its own room its so big.

Black Owl. It looks the least ridiculous :p
Big Elf 18th April 2011, 13:19 Quote
If I was voting for looks then I'd go for Black Owl. However voting for the best watercooling case it would have to be Proteus then Gladius, II and Black Owl.
Marvin-HHGTTG 18th April 2011, 13:21 Quote
II for me. Black Owl takes too many styling cues from the G5 for me, whilst the others are so massive there's not that much innovation - any massive case would be good for watercooling, while the other two are a more manageable size.
