Case designs have been leaning towards the "pimp-my-mobo" side of things recently and this is no exception. THe SilverStone LC18 has an external LCD monitor on the case and looks like the bastard spawn of a MacMini and ThermalTake death-beast. Featured at this year's C3, the LC18 is an interesting mix of elegance and over-the-topness that I can't quite get my head around. I wonder about heating issues with a phat LCD inside a tight overclocker's case.

I won't be able to make it into the city to visit C3 this week, BTW, so anyone with any info, please drop us a line. You can be a citizen reporter aka unpaid freelancer!
