Best money is no object mid tower case?

I realize "money is no object" and "midtower" is kind of contradictory. But I'm going off to college soon, and I plan to do a lot of LAN parties, not to mention dorm rooms are tiny as hell, so I'm looking for a really good midtower case. I have a good bit of graduation money so price isn't really important- I just want something that will last, cool well, and looks sharp.

Any suggestions? Thanks guys.

It is a good case, but here we go again I would never buy it myself since it is white! (LOL)

I would say that's a nice case but not terribly portable, and not small by any means.

Why not put together a nice mATX system? That's the way to save space, and very few people actually NEED a full ATX system.

For a full ATX at least get something with handles :)

Yeah that was the other thing I was looking at. I hate the looks of it though. But if it functions well, I'd be fine with ignoring the "construction themed toy" look. Does it cool pretty well?

Yes it cools well with all those openings!

Oh, and if I went the mATX route I'd have to buy a new mobo, which means I'd probably go for the LGA1155 socket, which means I'd probably buy a new processor, which means I'd eventually buy a totally new computer and blow through all of my graduation money.

Yes, I have knocked well-ventilated cases in the past because my personal theory said they wouldn't work. The truth seems to be that they work great though.

The Lanboy comes with other highlight colors. Also, ALL those cases that look "Toyish" or "Industrial" in pictures really look far better in person.

Here's a vid that gives you a bit better look at one

Actually I just looked and that's a full tower case. So it's a no-go. But I like the looks of it.
