Looking for all the world like a compost bin, the Segotep "Super Case H1" comes from original equipment manufacturers Chaintech and Colorful. Seriously, it even has a handle for its lid.

This is the more than faintly ridiculous: the CFI A1028 (video). This bit can house up to an HPTX motherboard...

Lian Li's PC-CK101 is another of its special edition cases, like the Seashell and Spider before it. And. like those cases, the company is thinking about selling this. For real.

Hang on, that's just a normal gaming case, isn't it? Sure. Until you notice the wireless router built into the top.

Chinese brand Haial's H1201's red aluminium was beautiful to behold. At first glance it seemed well built too, which might put fear into Lian Li.
