    I quite like the look of those with the solid coloured panel at the front. Performance wise, the side vents on the front panel that allows the front fans to breathe - it needs to be wider to allow more air in so as to not restrict the front fans. Work done over on Gamers Nexus, they proved that such side vents need to be at least one inch wide in order to not create any significant air flow restrictions. Those side vents look less than 1 inch wide - at least the actual open portion looks less than one inch, if you look carefully it seems that about one third of the 'styled' vent area width is actually closed off.
