Finally! It certainly sounds very impressive on the feature side, although I simply can't shake the image that somebody put a corset on a Mac Pro...

hahaha about the corset, made me laugh out loud

Great case no doubt and way out of my price league - However, £400+ cases should really come with removable fan filters please.

But having said that, really, really nice case.

Finally ! But ouch on the price tag, far too much for my purse. I second maverik on the removable fan filters and I would add that hot swap backplane for the HDD racks is MANDATORY given the price tag.

Well done Snowy, I'm glad to see your design fianlly alive. It was a tough fight during this design contest , too bad I didn't made it to the final round

Yeah I would definitely say the handles were more 'G4/5/MacPro-esque' than 'Prodigy-esque', seeing as those designs have been around for a hell of a lot longer than the Prodigy.

How long in the making? I vaguely remember something about this two or three years ago?

No sound insulation, no blanking plates for unused fan/rad mounts, huuuuge case.

I applaud the effort, but I think the market may have moved on in the meantime.

It's absolutely honking.

It just literally looks like lots of metal bent into shape and it looks completely unfinished.

I wouldn't mind dude but FFS, one look at our project logs section and you can bloody see where the brains are at !

Why not just hire some one like B-Negative and get them to do it properly?

I mean chit, even EVGA have designed a nice looking case.

Indeed, for 423 you would expect it to be made of titanium or come ready fitted with a full WC setup.

Surely it has to be a typing error. That's just madness. There's no way that is worth more than my old Cosmos ll.

I'm sorry but that is about 200 too expensive.

I think it's about £300 too expensive ...

400+ ought to have some parts in it, surely? Not just a WC setup, how about a mobo?

the design is fine, well done to snowy for that, and congratulations on it seeing production. But that price is a showstopper.

Well it's looking like it'll end up like the other Phobya monstrosity, being sold for peanuts to try and shift stock.

As for the design? it's not fine, it's honking. It looks like a regular desktop case like, say, the Phantom, that's had all of the plastic stripped off to show the bare steel interior.



I'm sorry to any one involved in this, but that's just how it looks to me. It's absolutely honking. Even looking at the photos it just looks like a ton of laser cut steel all bolted together. For 420 or whatever the price is you could walk into a company with a laser or water cutter, get your dream case cut, then go and have it all powder coated.

I look forward to seeing one sat side by side with either a Cosmos 2 or 900D. Then it will be completely apparent.

If they genuinely want feed back then my advice would be give this one to Snowy and stay out of the case market,

It might win mod of the month as a scratch build but cant see it competing with the likes of Silverstone or Coolermaster especially with the ridiculously high price tag.
