I look for High Airflow cases to go along with hiding them in a closet or something in that order. I just use USB extension cables/hubs or wireless devices. It makes sound and case looks irrelevant. High Airflow is very relevant and the most important thing a case does. Looks are fine and dandy but if looks take away from keeping my motherboard VRM's cool along with all the other stuff inside the case I will go for UGLY and Functional. I have the HAF 922 coolermaster case and I am very happy with its cooling capability. I wish the Corsair Vengeance Military Green C70 Mid-Tower Gaming Case was out 3 years ago because i would have bought that instead.
Knocking on wood........... I keep my computers very cool and use overly aggressive fan profiles to keep all my components extra cool. I think this is why I have NEVER had any motherboard, video card or any component besides a mouse fail on me since I have been building a using my OVERCLOCKED CPU's and GPU's 24/7 365 days a year since the early 90's. There is just no other explanation of why I have never had a component fail. I know it is not luck since I am about the most unlucky person on the planet.
A cool computer is a happy long living never fail computer in my eyes.
