So what if you made a huge heatsink, and hollowed it out that your entire system could fit in it, and then filled most of the remaining space with heatpipes?  You'd have Zalman's TNN500AF case, and X-bit Labs does a great review on it.  My only warning about it is the price, a quick look shows the cheapest price to be around $1000.00.

"The new system case from Zalman, the TNN500AF model, beats its precursor, the TNN500A, in every respect. The new system is more efficient, functional and easier to assemble and use.

Check out the Raidmax Cobra 822 case review over at Overclockers Online.

It isn't often that you see a case of this type turning up on our
desks. Indeed, I have never personally owned one and could not see the lure
to the bright lights, odd styled windows, and themed bezels. I'm talking
about heavily pre-modded cases; Thermaltake, Raidmax, Cooler Master, Antec,
and so many more all do it in some form. These are the cases that were built
to grab attention.

Radiators that hide inside the case, watercooling on the cheap, and a way to make your 6800GT cooler and quieter than it is now.

"We're going to be looking at a water cooling solution from a German company that I haven't heard of before. The company is called 1A-Cooling and the system we are looking at is their dual 5 ¼ drive bay radiator kit. It is this radiator what makes this kit different from most other kits on the market.

Air cooling is still going through innovations.  Thermalright's SI-97 is about half the weight of most newer heatsinks, so it doesn't need to be screwed into the 4 mounting holes, it can use a retention clip, and one that sounds easy to work with, partially because of the unique design of the SI-97.

"Thermalright are renowned for their quality performance heatsinks throughout the enthusiast and overclocking community. Their latest offering for the aging but popular Socket A market, is the SI-97. In Thermalright terms, this is a different kind of heatsink.

The Sunbeam case that OCIA reviews has one of the most interesting side panels I've seen on a non-modded case.  See if it fits your style too.  If not there are 1 or 2 more reviews to try.

"Sunbeam has listened to the cries of enthusiasts for years and has included a 120mm front intake fan hole. I am not sure why they included a fan bracket, as a 120mm fan can be mounted directly to the steel shell behind it, eliminating the need for the bracket.

"Not too long ago, water cooling was reserved for the elite, adventurous few who are willing to pay the extra bucks for the extra cooling power.

Air cooling innovations are still coming out, even with the growth of water cooling as a solution for top preforming PC's.  With 120mm fans and multiple heat pipes being the main improvements lately, it is nice to see someone improve that which usualy gives me the most trouble, the retention clip.  Phoronix reviews the Spire VertiCool and one of the comments that stood out for me was "

The Spire VertiCool is among the easiest heatsinks on the market as far as installation is concerned."

A nice spread of cases, with a style that should suit just about anyone looking at getting a snazzier case.  Pimprig's look at the warrior is the place to start.

"I was really impressed with the actual construction. Instead of using glue or rivets to attach the mesh and plastic window, they used screws with end caps.
