    I think it's more of a triangle with the points cut off, but that's why I'm not a marketeer :)

    You cut the points off a triangle, you get a shape with six sides instead of three. What do we call a shape with six sides, class? ;)

    Just take a look at the fans...

    [​IMG]

    Three 38mm fans in the front dumping air into the case... no fans beside the AiO CPU-cooler to get rid of the warmth air.

    Sorry to say, but this case won't perform, and it'll be loud as hell with an aircooled triple GPU-Setup.

    Well I, for one, really like it. It's different and at the same time not particularly impractical.

    Silverstone FT-05 looks better to me, and far more efficient in terms of fan placement and cooling

    Good for them for trying something different with a practical use in mind rather than just gaudy grills etc. for aesthetics only...
