Question Most attractive case?

A beautiful PC case...
seems hard to find

Hi there guys,
i'm looking to start up a new build but i can't find a case thats really doing it for me.

Originally i was planning on modding a mac pro case because they look really nice and could be considered a center piece rather then just 'another PC case'.
Problem is i really don't like the idea of modding, cutting and messing around with the inside of the case since i have no skill in that area and won't be able to get it to the level of finish i would want.

So heres my question:
what cases would you recommend for someone looking for an attractive case? One that would even seem appealing to those of us who aren't tech-savvy.

i have looked at a few case already and my top choose so far are:

Cooler Master Cosmos II Ultra

although its a great case, besides size it doesn't seem to have that strange/wow factor about it.

Thermaltake Level 10 GT

bit of a cool design, but i'm not sold on it

In-Win H-Frame

really interesting design, although not a biggest fan of the colours.

i know i'm picky guys so bare with me, but what cases would you suggest?

Out of they 3, the cosmos II is the clear winner in my opinion. The Thermaltake being there isn't going to go down well with the rest of the forums and the in-win, while I like it as a looker, the design and cooling is too compromised in my opinion.

cosmos 2 definitely! its a loaded case and has much superior air flow than the other two. but have you maybe thought about the NZXT phantom. its a beautiful case and by god that thing is a beast if you want to create a rig that is air cooled.

cosmos 2 out of those three. But I really like the Phantom 630 and the CM Storm Stryker! Also you can't go wrong on the Corsair 650d and 600t.

600T is the most attractive case ever.

The CM is the best, the other two need to be killed with fire.
