You probably don't want to hear this. The best case i have had so far is no case at all. I have this huge desk that has large cupboards above and on the back edge of the desktop. I mounted a cutdown case chassis in the cupboard, drilled holes for the cables and such and built the computer right in the desk. Its the quietest computer i have ever had. The only time i hear any niose is when i open the door to put a cdrom in one of the drives. Yes, it was a lot of work but its real fun watching people try to figure out where the computer is. I am now building a new desk with a sliding tray in a desk in place of the usual junk drawer just under the desktop. Cdrom drives will be behind a flip down panel at the front edge of the desk. Want to upgrade the computer? slide it out and have at it. Want to upgrade to a new computer? just change MB and parts and go.

Doesnt tell you much does it. Just thouight i'd throw an idea out for you. I really like the antec cases when i have to break down and build a plain ole computer.

SRX -
All right!! Someone else who's done the "wood PC" thing. My wife thinks I've gone around the bend. I did roughly the same thing. Found an old ATX PC case, carved it down til just the motherboard mounting plate and the frame around the PCI cards was left. Built a roll-out tray inside my home-built cabinet holding up the countertop, and installed everything to the tray. Several trial-and-error modifications later I've got a quiet, cool-running PC that's not hogging desk or floor space.
And, as you mentioned, it's fun to watch people's expressions!!
